We may be getting a new house here already. I put an offer on a house this morning and it was accepted this evening. I was actually kind of surprised the offer went through so smoothly since it was a bit of a low bid. It was a house I had walked through a couple weeks ago and liked it a lot and then Mary and I walked through it together on Monday.
Really nice location in town, convenient to everything, at the end of a cul-de-sac. Fully-fenced 3/4 acre lot (fully fenced, front yard, driveway, everything). The backyard backs up to an irrigation canal and looks out (for now) over a huge open field toward some foothills to the north. A few cherry trees still lingering from a past orchard. Basically just a perfect property for us.
The house itself is old, but in good shape. It kind of reminds me of our place on Hoyt back in Michigan. Built about the same time, coved ceilings, arched doorways. We’ll definitely need to do some updating, but that should be kind of fun with quite a bit of character already built in.
