The House I Want To Buy

So if I can't have the house in NY that I want, I'll take this one in Mineral Point. I LOVE this house. I actually tried to link to it in my last post but it wouldn't work. So instead I give you the photos at least from the listing.



The kitchen needs some work, but there is good space to work with.



I LOVE that the dining room opens to two sitting rooms and I LOVE LOVE LOVE the arched doorways with pocket doors.




Isn't this gorgeous?

Okay, I admit it, it's cool. I've kind of given up on houses built before 1999 myself, but it looks really nice.

Yes! What a gorgeous house! If I were you and it looked as if my family were staying there for at least a few more years and this amazing house cost less than my current house - I would be on the phone with the realtor now. Take the kids for a walk through with Linc, let the realtor do all the work and grab a chance to live in a truly beautiful and unique home for a little while. Even when it was tumble down, dirty, filled with someone else's junk, badly remodeled and apparently haunted, it was really wonderful to live at Uncle Al's for a while and just enjoy the original intent of the achitecture. Good luck!

No fair! It's absolutely gorgeous! I want it too. Oh well they won't let 14 year old girls buy houses anyway! (MbrynB)
