This lot is a little over a half an acre and has many huge trees (which I love). We usually buy new built homes that you have to landscape or the perfect house with the nightmare landscape like the house we live in now.
I wish I could say that the inside is gorgeous but I can't. It has many rooms that are good sized but this house was built in 1977 and it looks it. This is the biggest project we have ever taken on for updating. The hubby isn't liking the lower ceilings as we are used to higher ceilings but I can live with it. The family room is vaulted and the front is is two story.
Here is the family room off of the kitchen. The wall is going away so it will be open to the kitchen.
This is the powder room next to the family room. Yes, just about every room is wallpapered.
This is a little bar area across from the family room. It's like I stepped back in time.
This is the study on the other side of the powder room. I didn't even know that they made homes with studies back then.
It has four bedrooms upstairs. This one will be my craft room.
The master bedroom is across from the other three so it is private. I will just show you the bathroom areas.
The master bedroom is on the other side of this area. We are going to have to gut this area and start over so both sinks will be in one spot.
Not only is this the oldest house we have ever bought but it is also the largest at 5300 square feet. We really don't need all that room but it is a great neighborhood, large lot and on a cul de sac. We are going to take out a loan on this home since we aren't putting ours on the market until next week. We usually sell ours first and then look but the real estate market has been crazy here with not many good homes coming on the market and when they do they are gone within a few days.
This the biggest project we have taken on and I am starting to feel a little stressed right now. Part of me is excited and the other part of me is dreading it.
