The home we're in the process of buying is a funky little bungalow that was built in 1912. It was added onto at some point, maybe in the 70s, and they did sort of a sloppy job with some of it. BUT it's full of potential and we're totally excited to make a few changes and make it our own! (Yes I know the front porch is blue, and no I don't know why! Eventually we'll paint it. But for now, blue it remains. :) )
It has 5 bedrooms, 2 baths, and a total of 2792 square feet (some of that is "unfinished" storage space in the basement, which is great.) It's in the Platt/Wash Park neighborhood of Denver. Lots of mature trees and old homes. The elementary school is right nearby (less than a half-mile away) and is excellent--high test scores, relatively small class sizes, etc.
I can't wait to remodel the kitchen and spruce the home up a bit. For now I love the moulding on the windows and walls, the hardwood floors, and the fact that this place was built a really, really long time ago. I also love the look of the street and the many trees (sorry, forgot to get a pic of that.) After living in such a new neighborhood for the last four and a half years, big trees make me happy!
Anyway, the house is under contract, and the concession negotiations are about to begin. Our realtor is hard-core...good times up ahead!
