The end of our house hunting adventure has come - we found a house! As I mentioned in my last house-hunting post, we put an offer in on a house we found. This house is bank-owned, so the process was a little more time consuming than a regular home sale.
But, we persevered through a number of setbacks and glitches and learned last night that we got the house! We're excited! Here's the house:
The lot is 1/3 acre, so big enough to have a decent back yard (pictured below) and there's already a garden sectioned off in the side yard.
You can see our agent and my husband in this shot.
This house has 7 bedrooms, but we will only be using 5 as bedrooms.
One will become David's study and another will become my studio.
The master bedroom is large:
The kitchen is small, but has room for expansion, which we're already talking about. I compromised on the kitchen since the rest of the house is so great. It's attached to a dining room, so we'll knock out a wall and build or buy a large island to expand the space.
The living room has a hardwood floor as well as a wood-burning fireplace:
My favorite room in the entire house is this massive sun room! (below) It covers one entire side of the house, is about 25' x 15' and, as you can see from this pic, has many windows. It overlooks the street on one side and the back yard on the other. For me, this makes the house.
It is already designated as our family room.
So, the house hunt is over and we feel we found the perfect house for us!
Thanks for coming along for the ride.
This will be our 4th move in a 3-year period of time......and should be our last for a very long time. We have never moved this much and it's exhausting. We are ready to stop moving.
