But, we DID buy a house!!!
We closed last Wednesday and got the keys this afternoon. We've already moved some things over and have been trying to organize as we go. It is in Mardis Addition, in the woods behind Home Depot.
Here is a view from the front steps, looking back on the driveway. There is a very long driveway coming up the property, ending with this circle drive, and a driveway up to the garage. The house is on 1.5 acres, a lot of which is wooded. Very pretty and private!
Here is the main living area. There is a walk-out basement below, so the view these windows have is quite a bit above the ground in the backyard. There is also a large deck off of this room, with stairs down to the backyard.
I LOVE this kitchen! It has a 6 burner gas stove with a grill, an oven and a half, an instant hot water tap, a separate ice maker, a bar sink, an island with space for seating, lots of pantry space with pull out shelves, a built-in microwave and fridge. I could go on and on. If you know me and my passion for cooking, you know the kitchen was important!
Here is a view from the main living room, looking into the "sitting room" and up the stairs. What else could we call it besides a "sitting room"? I need suggestions. Palor--no! Keeping room--no! Den---no! There's another room in the basement that we're calling the family room, so that title is out, too. Anyway, up the stairs there are three bedrooms. The boys will share a large one with their own bathroom inside of it. The girls will each have their own smaller ones, adjoined by a 3 room jack-and-jill bath. They each have their own sink/vanity room, then they are connected by a shared toilet and bath.
Here is the office that is right inside the front doors. Has built-in bookshelves and cabinets, and french doors.
This is the dining room. A little formal for us, but we'll make it our own!
This is part of the master bathroom. His and hers vanities on each side of the corner tub. Also there is a walk-in closet, a separate shower, and a toilet room.
Here is the basement family room. In the far corner, there is a little "kitchenette" with a sink, microwave, fridge, cabinets and counter with room for two bar stools. Also downstairs there is a guest room, an unfinished bedroom, a full bath, and a storage room.
Anyway, we're looking forward to getting more and more moved in as the week goes on! We'd welcome visitors at any time, either just to stop by and see it, or to spend the night with us!
