Close…but no cigar.

The boyfriend and I went to visit my mother a bit earlier today, as per our usual Sunday routine, and on the way back home we noticed a home for sale just one block away!

It appeared to me to be a two family home and it has a driveway in the front. Tres exciting for us, since beau has a car.

Zillow has it listed here:

I specifically love the open layout. I’m all about lofty space. The less walls the better. Hardwood floors are always attractive, I love the glass doors leading to the yard from the kitchen, and the bedroom is a great size. The finished basement is certainly a plus.

The house is perfect. I love the location, it’s a smart layout and there’s a driveway.

The only problem is, this is a ONE family and our mortgage would be upwards of $3,500K a month. Had this been a two family house, we’d be much more likely to afford it as the renters unit would help us out tremendously.

Alas, she’s a beauty but still remains unaffordable for us :/


About Maya

I like words like "labyrinthian," "kerfuffle," and "serendipitous" because they're mellifluous. I love poetry, pumpkin ales, sangria, long summer days, Fall foliage, going out of my way to step on crunchy leaves in October, live music, Jazz, Salsa dancing, theater, film (foreign and indie), the arts (myriad varieties), dance (in theory and practice) and any place where I can sit outdoors and take it all in.
