So today I'll show you house number two. This was a really nice house, an estate sale, so priced to sell. I think this was my favorite for the day. It was a nice layout and had a lot of what we were looking for.
The house has only had a couple owners, and the last ones had been there for over 25 years, and it was in really good shape. The yard was kept up nice and the house seemed to be fairly sound.
The living room was great, nice and open. Oh and did I mention, hard wood floors throughout the whole house. Beautiful, original hardwood floors. They wouldn't even need to refinished, they were beautiful as is. I was in love with them.
The kitchen was where the major updating would have to take place. It had all original appliances, all built in. So that would mean all the appliances would need have to be replaced as well as the faux brick walls. Unfortunately some of the cabinets would have to come out because the stove was so small, I don't think they even make them that small any more.
The bedrooms were nice sizes and had a decent amount of closet space. And the windows were old, but looked nice and sealed nice.
The best part of the house was the finished basement. It had a built in bar and a half bath. It also had a nice laundry room and a work room. Something that we are looking for, a nice finished basement.
Over all we liked this house. The majority of the work would be in the kitchen and some paint. It had a lot of dated built in features, circa 70s, but we could either take them out or work them into our decor. This is kinda of a house we would be looking for. A well built, well maintained ranch style house on a corner lot with a finished basement and a two car garage. We are in now huge hurry to find a house and move, so luckily we can take our time finding something that will be perfect. Too bad we weren't more ready to buy, we would have probably put an offer in on it.
Tomorrow will be house number three that we looked at.
