House! [Jul. 17th, 2014|12:27 am]
[Tags|, , ]
[emotional state |excitedexcited]

So for those that don't follow me over on Facebook, or those that missed it over there, Brandon and I are buying a house in Southern New Hampshire, just off of Rt 3 (so I'm still only 45 minutes to Camberville and Boston)! We close at the end of July, and move in early August. It's new construction, which wasn't what we were specifically looking for, but this property ended up being something we really liked. This is really exciting, but also anxiety producing with sorting through everything we own and packing and stuff. I might end up writing about that (since writing my last post ended up being very useful for me sorting out my own thoughts) but I figured I'd give people some of the pictures we have to ooh and ahh over before I delve into angsty first-world-problem rants.


2,100 square feet on two levels, unfinished basement. 2.5 baths, with laundry in the first-floor half bath. 3 bedrooms plus an "office" (room without closet) and a 2 car garage.

The kitchen! Appliances have been added since this picture was taken.

living room fireplace
The living room has a gas fireplace, and the entire first floor has hardwood floors.

master bedroom
Inside the master bedroom, facing the walk-in closet and the master bathroom -- hallway door on the right.

Upstairs hallway taken from the door to the master bedroom. Second and third bedrooms straight ahead, "office" (room without a closet) to the right, stairs down to the right, second bathroom to the left out of view. Second bedroom will be a guest room, third bedroom my craft/sewing room (yay!) and the "office" will likely be a small library (computers will go downstairs). Flooring has been picked out, and will be installed soon.

Brandon doesn't love getting his picture taken, but man is he cute! *swoon*

the deck
This is my favorite picture. Brandon, Dan, and Abby just hanging out on the deck, which is off of the eating area of the kitchen. I hope it's representative of things to come.

I'm pretty sure if you had a good throwing arm you could land a rock in Tyngsboro. Only slightly exaggerating.

(nchanter, lmk if that's too much location detail for your internets.)

Nah, that's fine. I don't want to post the actual address on the open interwebs (or want to think about it more before I do), but I'm fine providing more specific information than you have.

We're about 2 minutes off of exit 2 (depending on the lights) in the vicinity of the Market Basket and Sam's Club in Hudson.

Ooh! Aah!

You have a back hill rather than a back yard. I totally approve - that was one of the main reasons we bought our house.

Re: Ooh! Aah!

Yea, Brandon's kinda excited about the physical property -- enough manicured front yard space to satisfy his aesthetic preference, but most of the land is up the back hill, which means he won't have to mow it. We will be able to fit a hot tub next to the deck, which we all know is important ;)

Re: Ooh! Aah!

That is totally important, especially if you can figure an easy way to provide visual privacy for the tub.

My reaction to that deck photo is to start wondering what sort of pretty ground cover could be planted on that slope.

I don't know if it would work, but I'd be happy to give you some vinca cuttings (it stays green year round and has pretty purple flowers in the spring).
