|Yes, a lovely second kitchen on the third floor for guests, super bowl parties, or if your like us, a space for your good friends...cause living in community is wonderful.|
Then there's daily living. A kitchen with the perfect place for everything. Even a dishwasher to the left of the sink for yours truly. Your huge 2nd level utility room with door to the deck. Glorious. Only way I have survived cloth diapers. The full apartment upstairs for my best friend and her family. Pretty great. FYI, future buyer, that space could be a killer master bedroom, or great room. I know a good designer. Wink, wink. But it's awesome as is too.
If walls could talk. You were built with fine detail, like over 100 years ago. Back then your residents had butlers and were way formal. I'm guessing your walls were dark with decorative wall covering (which we have seen layers of). Many people probably would have come in and said to you, we want to restore you just the way you were. We came in and said it a little differently. We totally respect who you were, but this is a new day and age, and we thought you'd like to remember who you were but keep up with the times. And we wanted to enjoy you too. The good Lord knows I don't walk around in a corset with a Victorian dress on, so why should you have to be wearing dated wall covering? I'll wear skinny jeans, and you can feel hip in gallery white or exposed brick. You are a fine mix of the old and new.
Thanks for being such a wonderful home.

P.S. Some folks lured Michael to letting them in on Sunday to view the home and the lady started dreaming...said she pictured the dining room ceiling being burgundy. I mean, smoothing the ceiling sounds great, but burgundy? Eek!
