[ a new home! ]



WE'RE excited to say that our home inspection was successful and the sold sign is now up! Now we just have to wait until mid July to get the keys!

We love this home - an original tudor-style home built in the 20's with a couple of additions added on over the past 12 years. It has some really lovely details...


Older homes always have such lovely character that is difficult to replicate in new-build homes. And the current owners have done a great job of marrying the newer additions with the older home, making even the original red brick exterior and inlaid wood floors blend seamlessly. Their love for this home is evident.

I think it will be very easy to settle in and feel right at home. This truly feels like my dream home and I can't wait to get our things moved in and start decorating!

Love! I love Tudor homes, curved doors, leaded windows, & beams! Dreamy! It must be so wonderful to be surrounded by all that lush greenery after all those years in the desert! I know that is how I felt when I moved away from Las Vegas.

Lisa, well done to find something so beautiful so quickly! It is really gorgeous and such a contrast to your last home. I hope you will be really happy there, and look forward to seeing what you do to it, although it does look pretty perfect already.
All my love, Linda xx

In reading over my last comment, I thought I didn't word it correctly and don't want you to think I was being rude about your last home. I simply meant that it was so modern compared to this new one! Sorry about that! Love Linda x
