I WANNA live there Wednesday is back - after quite the hiatus !!!
Just a quick word before I go further - please keep in mind that I'm showing houses - sometimes it's a bonus and it's beautifully decorated - sometimes it isn't - I never mentioned this on the blog but a couple of months ago I received an email from an owner of a IWLTW - thanking me for showcasing her home - ( which happened to be gorgeous ) but it made me realize that any one can come across this series - please be kind - we all have different tastes after all - thanks
So.......................life is so interconnected and the older you get the more it seems so..................
A very close friend of mine has decided she wants to move into our little neighborhood -
We owned a duplex in the city - ( before the last house ) and she lived in the suburbs - the year
I left that particular neighborhood - she moved from the suburbs right smack in the middle of it!
Our paths crossed - preventing us from being able to walk over to each other's places - but now it
looks like we'll be on the same " page " after all !!!
these are some of the homes under consideration - let me know what you think!
House number 1 ( I can't make the number sign work on this freaking keyboard )
3 bedrooms - 1 bath
Realtor: Jean Pierre Guindon
Keep in mind she wants everything WHITE as well :)
The living room is a living room / dining room combo - I can picture her beautiful furniture in here perfectly
New cupboard fronts in glass to match the corner ones -
She can't stand the faux Terra Cotta so that has to be changed ( I'd live with it for awhile )
But she's in love with the little step up to the mudroom and imagines coming in from walks with a dog
You all get that, right? The imagination game?
It's a decent size really - oops - the back splash has to be changed too I see - but it has tons of natural light
If she were a blogger she could work from that little desk area lmho
railings painted -
a window in the landing - wish I had that!!!
LOVING that it has a deck there already
It's loaded with charm - but here's the real reason this one is so close to her heart -
It has an extra guest house on the property which she would convert into an apartment for her son.
I can't tell you how in love I am with this little extra " building "
Is that amazing or what? Can you see the potential in it? I'd love to have something like this in the back!!!
Hopefully she'll only move in next summer because there's absolutely no way I can help her before then with the gut job we're working on - but I'd love to decorate that little guest house - inside and out.
House No. 2
5 beds - 3 baths
Realtor - Navin Somani
All I can say about this one - is that had it been available a few months ago - WE WOULD HAVE BOUGHT IT - WITHOUT A DOUBT - this is charming beyond words..............well any words I know anyway :)
It's 12 rooms - and even if they're tiny - there's 12 of them - seems a little too much for a soon to be single empty nester..............but as much as she loves the first one - this one is in the running too
Paint the cupboards - change the back splash and the floors - and I'd leave the wood counters
Tons of storage
Love Love Love the eating nook -
Huge potential !!!
this must have been an add on - it's too modern for the rest of the house
Radiators? Yes please -
Loving this little room too - why do I look at everything as a place to blog from LMHO
I'm in love with this stairwell too - window again!!!
Huge backyard ( well for these here parts anyway ) She's coming from the same area I just left so in our world this is like owning a ranch lol
This is unbelievable - really - I can't believe what I could have gotten for the price -

Look - they've laid out the red carpet for us!!!
Right on the property - I could have had a SHOP - never mind a room to paint in
Is it too late to change my mind do you think?
Other than paint, I wouldn't have to do a thing..................
