After looking throughout the summer and fall, we walked into the lovely abode you see above right before Thanksgiving and fell in love. To characterize the experience as falling in love is not to be overly dramatic, it is just true. As I walked through these rooms for the first time I was struck by the feeling that someone had designed a house just for us. How did they know?!
Shortly after the initial visit we met the couple who had built the house and we loved them too. He is a craftsman and she is an ESOL teacher. This is the kind of place that immediately feels lovingly made and I am so grateful that this worked out for us. Although we put in an offer in late November, they weren’t in a tremendous rush to move and so we were able to close last week, on my birthday in fact, which made this place one hell of a good present.
Next week we will be moving in and I can’t wait!
