Kristian LOVED the house. In the beginning he was very anti-townhouse for a number of reasons; they are smaller, have less yard, less privacy etc. However after seeing this place he said he not only would be happy living there but could see us living there for a long, long time.
Here's some of the highlights:
- 2 1/2 bath (with plumbing for another bath to be put in the basement)
-Huge finished basement that walks out to nice deck/patio
-TWO fireplaces (living room and basement)
-Deck off of the living room
-Wood floors in the dining room
-New kitchen appliances (not stainless steel but still new)
-Nice neighborhood with young families
And the best part which pretty much clinched it for us is that not only does it back up to woods but we have a "winter view" of the river, meaning when the leaves are off the tree you have a gorgeous view of the water. AND Kristian will be able to fish in his own backyard! You really can't beat that.
The only downside besides some basic cosmetic changes/painting/upgrades is that the kitchen is pretty small with not a lot of counter space. And since
It's bank owned and priced right in our range and it's ready to go. Meaning if we put a contract on it and get approved we could be moving in about two months.
It's seems crazy to think after only seeing 2 houses in person (and countless others online) we might already make an offer. After all I tried on 30 wedding dresses before buying one and that was a dress I wore for ONE day! This is a house! But it has most of everything we want and seems too good to pass up. It would be a great starter home for us.
Here are some of the pictures Kristian took:
View of dining room from the living room. The dining room leads into the kitchen.
Living room with fireplace that opens to a deck.
Large basement that leads to backyard and has a fireplace.
The kitchen, pardon the funky angle.
The view from the Master bedroom. This is what we would wake up to everyday!
We are going back tonight so I can see it in person and then we may go ahead and start the paperwork!
So what do you think? Are we crazy for not looking at more houses?
