The front is really nothing all that exciting, but the back is beautiful. The brick work is elaborate and extensive.
I wish I had a better picture of the trees at the back of the property but I don't. You can kind of see them from this bottom shot.
My favorite part of this house (besides the 1.5 acre lot and all the beautiful trees) is the floor to ceiling fireplace in the family room. The room has huge vaulted ceilings with beautiful beams crisscrossing the top of the ceiling.
The house is 5,000 square feet with four bedrooms, a bonus room, den with another brick fireplace, and FIVE bathrooms. What does one do with five bathrooms.
The thought of cleaning all that house isn't very exciting to me. However, the land, it is a calling to me.
God and I have been talking a lot today. We (meaning hubby and I) have decided to give ourselves until the end of the week to make a decision. Part of me doesn't want to wait. What if someone else snatches it up? Well then, Julie, I guess it wasn't meant to be. God must have another plan for your family.
This is pretty much the conversation that has gone on in my head ALL DAY LONG.
In an attempt to not drive myself utterly insane I started making a list of all the things we would need to do if we were to put our house on the market in the next few weeks. I made an appointment for the repairman to come out and deal with some things going on with our pool pump, hired a window washer, have a screen guy coming out to re screen a couple of windows, hired a handyman to do a few minor repairs that hubby just hasn't had time to get to.
Overall it was a pretty productive day.
I figure even if we end up staying in our beautiful home, which I really do love, at least it will be in tip top shape for us to enjoy.
I'm off to bed now to dream of rolling hills and avocado trees. Just think of all the guacamole I could make????
