Some Of Our Favorites
After last weeks house hunting "adventure" I was afraid to get too excited when we went out again today. Last week we saw lots of charm AND lots of renovation required. Two things I love, but those two things come with a third friend called LOTS OF CASH ON HAND to be able to complete that work. So we expanded our search to a new area and were happy to discover that our budget would get us something a little more move-in ready. Here are a few highlights: This one wasn't even on our list but was a few doors down from one that saw (and liked). It had never come up in our search since it has only 3 bedrooms, but it had 4 living areas??? Turns out the upstairs fourth bedroom was set up as a game room (next to another game room) and we could easily use it as a huge 4th bedroom. Loved it. Could be our next house if it's still available in 2 weeks. This kitchen is from our second choice. Lots of blue to paint over (sorry Julia) but super cute with a distinct colonial/historic feeling that I loved. A second story "master bedroom in the trees" from yet another house. Totally private back yard (from the blue kitchen house). Another back yard that backs to the green belt.
