Now that it's all but final - I figured I would take a few moments to show you this beauty of a house Steve was lucky enough to snag! I did steal some of the shots from online, but some are from one of the times we viewed the home.
You walk in the side door and up into the kitchen and see this:
From the kitchen you walk into the formal dining room:
Another view of the dining room:
In the dining room looking back towards the kitchen (kitchen has a swing door, shown here on the right. Door on left is a 'broom closet')
From the dining room you go into the living room:
Off both the living and dining rooms there is a door leading out to a front sun porch:
The porch and front door
You walk up the stairs:
and find 2 full bedrooms and one room without a closet (they have to call it a nursery as it can't be a 'bedroom' without a closet and it's pretty small too)
Second upstairs bedroom
Also upstairs you have a bathroom... but not just any bathroom... ready for this?
Yes indeedy - it's all pink. Pink toilet, pink sink, pink tub, floor, walls... Steve plans this to be the first thing to go - he wants to keep it classic to match the charm of the age of the home, but feels the pink needs to go. I will be helping in that DIY project and will post blogs about it.
Moving right along - there is a half finished basement. When you walk down the stairs there is a decent sized closet:
future wine cellar? I think so!
There is also a living room down there with a bedroom:
A bathroom with a shower only (upstairs bathroom only has a tub, shower will be added right away in some form):
And a little area for laundry:
So... the home was built in 1923, it has 3 official bedrooms and a nursery, it has 2 baths, a 2 car (plus some extra room for a workbench or something) garage, and the entire home has been kept in great shape. It's so clean ... and just simply beautiful! All the old wood reminds me of the house I grew up in and now, as an adult, I just love the character in older homes!
I need to start packing - turns out I have a lot of stuff.
