We closed on this house March 29, 2012 (just a few days after getting engaged!) and we love pretty much everything about it. When we started looking for a home we didn’t go in with the “starter home” mentality; we set out to find a house that could be our home for a long time. We’re pretty sure we found it.
This house was built in 1952, and the same family lived here for almost 60 years. I love that. After they moved out, their nephew bought the property and did a bunch of updates. That meant we had the luck of moving into a house full of mid-century features that didn’t require any big renovations.
It is a good place to be.
