I couldn't wait to show you the new place we are going to call home in March, so I downloaded all the pictures of the house from the realtor's website. Enjoy the house eye candy:
The main floor.
I love being able to see from the front door straight through the large windows in the back of the house to the backyard. I also love that the stairs are not right in front of the door. It makes the entry way feel so open. And aren't the arches a nice touch?
The second floor.
There are so many windows in this house. And if you watch HGTV at all, you'll know that natural light is a favorite phrase. This house has an ass load of natural light. I'm going to be able to get a tan inside my house in the summer! There are three bedrooms, two full bathrooms (one in the master suite), and a laundry room on this floor. And the master has his and hers walk-in closets!
This will be Shawn's pride and joy. And I can't lie, it's pretty awesome. Yes, that is a home theatre system. And, yes, it is staying. As far as I know, everything else in the basement is going, but if you've ever tried to move a pool table, you know it's a bitch. So we'll see if they end up leaving it (and their tanning bed that is tucked away in the unfinished part of the basement). I don't want it, but Shawn says we could sell it. I say if they leave it we chop it up for firewood in the fire pit in the backyard.
The yard backs up to a wooded area, which will not be built on. This was a huge selling feature for us. Plus, the deck is awesome, there's a fire pit and there's an electric fence for our dogs that will be replaced hopefully this spring or summer with a real fence. Trust me, no electric fence is going to stop our crazy mutts. I cannot wait to host cookouts in this backyard!
So that's it. All 2,500+ square feet of it. As Shawn says, I get the coolest birthday presents. And it is fitting that we will close on this house four days before my 30th birthday. March cannot get here soon enough!
