A new house for our growing tribe

I didn't want to say anything until we knew for sure - because we've gotten our hopes up in the past and had them fall through - but this is it, we signed the contract and are just awaiting final approval for all the paperwork. We close April 26th! :)

The house is on a cul de sac, has a 3 car garage, and a finished basement. The front porch has room for a swing.

Inside on the main floor is laminate flooring in the living and dining room. There is a brick, woodburning fireplace in the living room.

The dining room is HUGE and has grapevine wallpaper along the chair rail and has columns that separate it from the living room.

The kitchen has the new composite "ceramic" flooring that doesn't crack on impact, double ovens with a flat cooktop, double porcelain sink, an island, and a small "bar" countertop area that connects to the dining room.

The walls are all painted with lots of color - some turquoise, lime, yellow, red. It's nice.

The backyard is beautiful, with lush green grass and a wood (Rainbow brand, maybe?) play structure on mulch. It's huge! The fence is privacy height (8'?) and made of cedar. It has a brick patio with a pergola overhead for some shade, and two beautiful flowering trees that are still small, but established.

There's a three car garage with built-in cabinets. The basement is finished with a family room and a full suite - bedroom and full bath on the lower level.

Upstairs there is brand new frise carpeting throughout. There's a master suite with whirlpool tub and an enormous (bedroom sized) walk-in closet. There are two small bedrooms near us, and 2nd floor laundry (YAY!). Down the hall from us is this ENORMOUS suite for the older two girls. It has dual closets and a finished area that's sort of a reading nook or small "living room" that's built in. Turns out that was attic space above the garage and it was finished (presumably when they first built the home).

It's a bit older than we originally wanted, going on 11 years, but they are paying for a warranty for us and it has a new hot water heater. The furnace and A/C are covered by the warranty, if they should go out.

I think that's it! :)

We're so excited and can't wait for you to see it!!!

I'm so happy for you guys! I know you'll love the extra room and the fenced-in back yard. Good luck at closing. I hope everything times out just right!
I plan to be there to help. I'll get in touch with you later to let you know exactly when. :o)

I spy
