Vice President Leni Robredo showed us their humble abode in Naga City. No doubt, it is neat, beautiful, modern and it will amaze you. The VP and wife of the late Interior Secretary Jesse Robredo surely knows how to maintain their beautiful house design.
Maria Leonor “Leni” Gerona Robredo is a graduate of law and she passed the bar examinations on her second take last 1996. She was married to Jesse Robredo in 1987, and in 2012 Mr. Robredo passed away in a plane accident. And because of her husband’s legacy, VP Leni decided to join politics and in 2016 she won Vice President.
Despite her busy schedule, she managed to take care of her three daughters and their beautiful home. Their house in Naga City remains well arranged and beautiful even though the family mostly lives in Manila. Let us take a quick look at the three-story house of the Robredos.
The house is simple, very minimalist, contains very basic house pieces and furniture. Guests will be first greeted in this simple foyer.
It is also a perfect place to have coffee with friends while having a chit chat. A portrait of the late Jessie Robredo is visible in the corner of this entryway.
The living room is also simple yet beautiful. The walls are painted white which makes the room very bright and neat. The daughters of VP Leni plays the piano, which explains why they have one in the living room.
The dining area has modern table furniture which can accommodate six people. The glass door gives the area natural lighting. The wood and glass design of the table makes the room looks modern and classic as well. For me, this is a perfect place for great meals and family bondings.
Although the family stays in Manila, they have loyal house helpers maintaining the cleanliness of the entire house. The kitchen is very clean and simple. Just like the other rooms in the house, the wall is also painted in white. The utensils and kitchenware inside the drawers and cupboards are properly arranged. I would love to have this kind of kitchen, very sleek.
Living in the city is great. But sometimes it’s nice to go home and relax in the province especially if you have a house like the Robredos.
