Today we parked at the house we just submitted an offer on. Then we got out and walked to Geoff's school. It was just 10 minutes of very pedestrian friendly, kids on bike friendly side walk from door to door.
This house has a tiny yard. But having been interested in 2 houses with huge lots that were largely unusable... I see the yard at this place as being enough. Enough for the kids to have a place to dig holes, swing from the giant Magnolia in back, shower off from riding bikes to the beach, camp out, etc... And it's not all the extra maintenance.
Did I tell you it's no gas? I haven't had a gas stove in 13 years. I'm actually not a purist, but I really dig the cooking on gas, and tankless water heater.
Did I tell you it's 105 years old? But it was beautifully remodeled 2 years ago with new plumbing, electrical, kitchen, baths.
You know the saying "When Mama ain't happy"? Well if we get this house I hope the reverse would follow.
