I recently happened upon a property that has me considering a move. I find myself in this predicament a lot lately, as I have been wanting to move for the past year or two now. Great places disappear quickly if you don't act quickly. With that in mind, I decided to post some pics of this great property, so I can stare at them and maybe make a decision before it's too late.
|Super style. Yep, the roof leaks and there is some interior damage from it. |
Nothing too involved or costly to fix, however.
|A great winding driveway!|
|I love the distance from the main road; it is much needed since the road gets a bit more traffic than I desire.|
|The proximity to the backyards of neighboring homes. I always take this in to consideration. A row of evergreens would surely remedy this view and provide a more cozy, private environment.|
|I wanted to make sure the place had cable versus satelite only. I was impressed with the massive outdoor lighting transformer.|
|Right side view. A large rear deck area with built-in bar. Main "side" entry to home.|
|Sloped backyard, but nice wooded side of property - both left and right.|
|The back portion with the skylights is actually a large screened-in room. French doors connect it to the main home.|
|The left-side: This is the lone bedroom on the main floor.|
|More of the screened in room: perfect for family get-togethers and eating "outside" without the hassle of insects!|
|The cool "cabana area" with built-in tiled bar top. A super spot for guests to hang.|
|I love practicality and this built-in bench utilizes this space well. Perfect outdoor seating.|
|Other side of the bar. Great lantern-style light over the area which is repeated among the rest of the outdoor lighting.|
|Inside the screened-in back room. Love the skylights and fan.|
|French doors from the screened-in room to the main living area of the home.|
|Peeking in the main side door: opens to the kitchen/dining area, hallway and lower-level stairway.|
|Another view: the main great room with its many windows is seen beyond. |
Some plaster damage/debris on the floor from the ceiling/roof leak.
|Kitchen: Not huge, but doable. Needs some updating|
|More lantern lighting. I had this style of lighting at my city townhome and always loved the looks of it.|
|Great Room: Water damage visible on the walls and floor. How sad. |
But this place can be made to shine again with a little effort.
|The balcony isn't overly functional. I could see placing some plants up there...maybe some "hidden" speakers. |
It is mostly aesthetic.
|Blasted screens! This is the lone bedroom on the main living level. It is listed as a one bedroom home, but I believe a room in the "basement" has already been converted into a bedroom - or easily could be.|
|Overlooks farmland. I love how the home is up away from the main road. Much more private feeling.|
|A peek into the bathroom. This herringbone tile pattern runs through the kitchen and hall too. |
I actually like the cohesion and style of this flooring throughout.
|A view of the left side backyard area. Nice stacked stone landscaped walls to define areas.|
|I wanted to be sure to get a good shot of the log and "stone" foundation together.|
|Nice deck to sit out upon.|
|Lots of landscaping potential.|
|I like this main entry area. Great specimen shrubs and trees have been chosen already.|
|Trying to get a feel for what it would be like if I lived here - my truck in the drive! Plenty of parking area. No garage but I could see placing a two-door garage right where that grass starts. It would be convenient to drive straight up into it!|
