So as marriage is coming down the road, I am selling my house and Ashley and I are looking at moving to something perhaps a little more centrally located for both our jobs. I'm sad to be leaving my house and the neighborhood, but excited at the prospect of something new (with hopefully more room for a vegetable garden!)
My house is 2 blocks from the light rail, 2 blocks from Minnehaha Falls, and about a mile from Nokomis. There's no airplane noise due to the alignment of the runways. Odd, but true, and it makes it a quiet and quite pleasant neighborhood.
The best features of the home are the 2 enormous living rooms on the first floor, particularly the back one which has lots of sunlight and connects to a large wrap-around deck. 2 garage spaces and a spacious driveway make plenty of room for all your cars if you have 4 or 5. I've done a fair amount of work to the house. I installed heated flooring and tiles in the kitchen a couple years ago, and just recently we refinished the floors in the bedroom and living room. They look gorgeous. Take a look at the photos!
Also, last year I planted 4 paper birch trees in the front yard. As they mature, it will create a beautiful "room" in the front yard. A landscape architect at my firm designed it for me. Trust me, after I move I'll definitely be coming back to check on the progress of those trees, which I nurtured like my children last summer.
Here's the link again. There's an open house tomorrow from 2-4pm if you're interested. The property was placed online yesterday afternoon and it's already had 3 showings, so come and check it out quickly!
