DRUM ROLL, please... Matt and I just signed the contract on our new house!!! After a lot of thought and prayer, Matt and I decided that apartment living was just not for us any more. We went out last Saturday to look at houses and fell in love with the second one we saw that day-- we still looked at other houses, but we compared them all to this second one.
Ever since we married, we have talked about what we absolutely MUST have in a house and then what we would LIKE to have in a house. This one has EVERYTHING!! The master is on the 2nd floor (which is what we wanted), there is a Jack and Jill bath, 4 bedrooms, 4 full baths, a giant kitchen with granite counter tops, deck, full basement (unfinished), and a decent yard (that will eventually be fenced). There is also a loft at the top of the stairs. Take a look and see what you think.This is the covered deck right off of the den, below it is the patio that has access to the basementThis is the view from the den towards the front door and formal living roomOpposite view into the den and stair caseBay windows in the living roomPassage from the kitchen to the dinning roomSpeaking of the dinning room...Looking into the den from the hallway-- access to the covered deck is on the left side wallThe den already has a ceiling fanThe kitchen is rather large (big smile)-- the appliances are going to be black and will be installed before closingView from behind the kitchen island into the denGoing up the stairs... loftloftLooking over the loft toward two of the bedrooms and the laundry room-- UP STAIRS!!!One of the bedrooms that is connected to the Jack and Jill bath... the other two bedrooms are fairly standard-- the one that connects to the other side of the bath room will be my studio/craft center and the bedroom at the end of the hall at the top of the stairs, next to the master will be our guestroom.The master-- looking into the bathroom that has a giant tub, curtain shower, dual vanities, linen closet, toilet closet, giant walk in closet and a not-so giant walk in closet.The best part of the master... sitting room with a fireplace.
I hope you enjoyed our 1st house!!! It will look much different with paint and furniture, and I will blog during the whole process (but that means I won't be cooking for a while since we will be boxing things up). Can't wait!
