Dream House

Ever since last February, I've wanted to buy this house. See how cute my van looks in the driveway? It's down the street from Max's school, Bay's school, the creek is right there, I mean RIGHT THERE, and the park is across the street. I want this house. I can see my family living in this house, but I can't afford it and it looks like nobody else can either.

This is through the window next to the front door. Doesn't the light look pretty?
This is the backyard. I live in a town that has temps frequently over 100 F. This week, it's supposed to be in the upper 80s. We do a lot of swimming in Chico. And Max, he would love to be able to use the pool again. There's also a seperate hot tub, it's behind where I was standing when I snuck into the backyard to take this photo.
You can kind of see it reflected in the slider here. Do you see what I mean? Do you know how helpful a hot tub would be to a boy with scoliosis? That's the living and part of the dining room, by the way. That doorway, it leads to a larger room with lots of light - a really big room. I thought it would be a good family room and I could put up a half wall and make an area for Max and his stuff. I thought that the light would be good in there for a temporary studio. Someday I'd like to take those walls down - the one to the left, the one that corners up to it and make it all one big room. This house was built back in 1984.
Here's the opposite view of the pool. That table was just left there. Cool - my table is broken, I can so use that one when I move in. ;D Aren't those trees lovely? One time, this Summer, we took Robin to go see it and at that time, the pool was completely black. Something jumped out of the water and scared the you-know-what out of us!!! They must have poured some chlorine not very long ago. It is blue, but very cloudy. This yard, it is so pretty. There are all these planter areas and I could put vegetables up by the back fence.

Anyway, I do like to dream........................ ;D

have you checked to see if the owner would do a lease with the option to buy? or just a rental/lease agreement? it would be awesome if you and your sweet family could live in a house...room to breathe. :)

Thank you, Catherine. :D I wish I could get a job taking the photos of the houses for the realtors - the photos that were originally done on this house don't do it justice.

Leah, the owner lost the house, but the bank, would the bank do that? I don't know. I need to email my realtor. It would be so nice to live there.

Leah said...

it sure would be worth looking into. you never know what maybe even the banks are willing to do with the market the way it is. nice looking place! my fingers are crossed for you. :)
