Would You Be My Neighbor?

As I mentioned on Monday, my neighbors have put their house up for sale.  This means that there is only one house out of nine on my block that hasn't been for sale in the past 5 years.  It also means that when the one next door sells, only one person will have lived on the loop longer than I have (and she and her late husband have been here as long as their beautiful 1960s brick rancher).

So, here's the place that's for sale next door.  Before you get all excited about it though, when the elderly couple that lives there now bought it 6 years ago, they completely ripped out the original kitchen and bathroom and updated them.  So, it's a nice house, but missing some of the best original features.  After talking with the people that live there now, I found out that it had a pink and black bathroom.  Now it's builder grade white.  Sigh.  The best feature of the place, in my opinion is the nice shop in the back yard.  Otherwise, I think I prefer the Shack.  My house may be 120 square feet smaller and short one bedroom, but my lot has more trees and is 10 feet wider.  I'll take the smaller house to have the larger yard.

Look closely for the yellow house in the background of these photos (to the left in the first photo and to the right in the second photo), and you'll catch a glimpse of the Shack!

Click on any photo to see it larger.  Have a great Wednesday!


  1. I would LOVE to be your neighbor! The same property here would list for around $400K. Yes, four hundred. In fact, except for the lot size and the attached single garage, this listing describes my house :)

  2. Wow, after you talked it up, how could anyone resist.

    You forgot to mention that the best selling feature is that they would have YOU for a neighbor!
