Well, it looks like we are moving! The house went on the market a couple of weekends ago – we had multiple offers and it sold in 2 days. The new owners to be love the house and the area, and said they wouldn’t change a thing. We’re happy to see it go to someone who will love and appreciate it as much as we did!
We did find a house to move into and I’ll be posting about that as soon as we get out of the option period and it looks like it will happen. Right now I can say is that it was built in 1961 and is a pretty major fixer…it’s not our style (it’s a cape cod traditional with dormers and 1.5 stories) but we plan to modernize it and make it “us” as much as we can. The big seller for us was the area – great schools and right around the corner to the elementary school, and pretty close to Mike’s work and Zoey’s daycare. It’s gonna be a challenge to make modern, but we’re up for the challenge!
I wanted to share one final house tour with some before and afters. We had a stager come in before we put the house on the market and we decluttered a bit and switched around the living and dining room…looking at these old photos makes me so nostalgic and so proud of all the work we put into the house. This house was a labor of love for us, and it totally reflects us – our style, our personality, and our quirks. This house for us was literally blood, sweat, and tears.
