A couple of weekends ago we decided to look at a couple of open houses. We started off at a HUGE place on a HUGE lot on the island in Manotick:
This is what 100k out of our price range looks like from the air:
On the way back V fell asleep in her car seat, but we decided to drag her through one more, in Barrhaven...
Not the greatest picture of anything but the tree, but it's another Tudor-style home, built around the same time.
It has a nice-sized living room, family room and a huge kitchen and dining room on the main level. There is also a partial bath, laundry and den to the other side of the kitchen:
The kitchen will need to be done at some point, but I'm already fantasizing about having a kitchen big enough to contain all of my kitchen gadgets!
Family room off the kitchen:
An entryway that can hold more than 2 people without the need for a Twister mat:
Did I mention - a POOL!
Aerial view because they're fun:
So we went back on Monday had a good long scour through, have some concerns that will hopefully be addressed by a home inspection, went in last night with V to make sure she approved, and put in an offer today! A 30-day close offer. Not conditional on the sale of our current house offer. A month from now we may be in the further out burbs, in a four-bed, four-bath house...they we need to figure out if we rent out our current house, or wait and sell it in the spring. Eep.
