…with a possible forever house. We went back for a second look this past weekend, and it’s everything we could possibly want, about 9 acres, has historical significance in the area, over 200 years old, a barn, multiple greenhouses, a gated kennel where we could put a chicken coop – EVERYTHING. It used to be a former flower farm, some years ago.
It also has groomed forests, maple trees, a root cellar, a pond, a kitchen garden that’s about as big as our community garden plot right now, and a pool and hot tub.
Um… *whispers* I’s wants it.
Of course, there’s the negatives. The house is only 1200 square feet (a quarter smaller than our current place) and looks like such a mishmosh of different time periods and sidings. Some of the original post and beam in the original part of the house need replacing. The barn siding needs to be redone – a lot of work, and a huge addition needed.
We want it, we really do. But can we afford it, with all that needs to be done? It only has 2 bedrooms right now. And, of course, we need to sell our current place. But can you imagine – going from a condo with no land to 9 acres? We were made for this place.
I don’t know if it will happen, but for now, it’s our dream.
