It feels like a bed and breakfast! It's cozy, yet spacious (2030 square feet, but divided up well), has a wood burning fireplace, hard wood floors, original kitchen is in amazing shape, it has 2 living areas and a dining room, and the upstairs master suite is amazing! It is an escape! It has a desk area, sitting area, a walk-in closet, and a cute bathroom. The backyard is HUGE and we would have plenty of space for a garden and for the kids to play for hours :). The lot is almost a quarter acre (which, for the city, is a good size!). The neighborhood is wonderful... I drove by the house today and saw families out and about riding bikes and walking around. Very family friendly. There's a grocery store a few streets over, and it's a short drive to Urban Acres (the local health food store). It's also just a short drive to my job (and church!). It's really the perfect house for our family.
Here are some pictures that we took:
Some wallpaper would have to be removed in a few rooms, but as we can see, that's all that would need to be done! The house is in good shape and is well taken care of.
I'll keep you updated on this house... I'm pretty sure this is the one! Of course, I've said that before so I am still guarding myself a little :).
