Last week I wrote about house hunting with my daughter and her family. Today I’m back with good news. My daughter and her hubby found a cute bungalow style home to raise their young family! And be forewarned, there are a lot of pictures ahead.
Last Saturday we toured five homes and the fifth one was the winner. Things moved quickly and yesterday was the home inspection. I took the opportunity to take a ton of photos to document Bridget’s new journey. This is a view of the front door from inside the house.
Bridget likes charming older homes and this one fills the bill. Here’s a look into the living room with loads of natural light shining on gorgeous hardwood floors.
The dining room is right off the living room through this adorable arched doorway. The door to the right is a coat closet.
A built-in china cabinet resides in a corner of the dining room. The bungalow style home was built in 1927 which makes me wonder if it was a Sears kit house.
The kitchen is small but cute. Bridget is a plant fanatic and she’s excited to put some of her green collection in the atrium window above the kitchen sink.
The French door in the kitchen leads out to a charming little porch.
I love this porch with its painted floor. What a great place to put a little table to enjoy your morning coffee.
The home has lots of charming details, like the cute Edison light. The room on the other side of the small window is the powder room. Let’s go check it out!
Can you see what’s missing in this room? The lid to the toilet seat! It’s an easy fix. The original sink is in the garage and Bridget and her hubby asked the seller to leave it so they can put it back in!
The stairway is off the living room and you can see there’s another arched doorway. I love the little window! Baby Forrest was a good trouper while we waited for the home inspector to finish his job.
The house only has two bedrooms but they’re both rather large. This is the master bedroom with its wonderful wall of windows.
There are two closets that you can walk into, and this one has a window.
This is still the same closet. It’s rather long.
The upstairs bathroom is small but functional. It’s hard to tell but the shower wall is subway tile.
The boys will share this room and there’s plenty of space for them.
They have a similar closet in their room. It’s plenty big.
The bedrooms are directly across the hall from each other, with the bathroom in between to the left.
And look! All of the interior doors have glass doorknobs. I had these in my first home which was a Sears kit house.
The house has radiator heating which I’ve heard is the best type of heating system. The basement runs under the entire house so it’s rather large. There are two radiators down here – and a few cobwebs too!
The bungalow style house has a stucco exterior which is in excellent shape. It needs some new landscaping and if it were me, I’d paint it a different color. But that’s for Bridget and Mike to decide.
The front porch wraps around a little to the side of the house so there’s plenty of room for enjoying warm breezes out here.
Finally, here’s a rear view of the bungalow style home. I’m so excited for Bridget and so happy she was lucky to find her charming older home. Now comes the hard part of waiting for closing day on April 5th!
Little Foo made it through the home inspection – almost!
Thanks for putting up with so many photos, but I want to document my daughter’s journey with finding her bungalow style home. It’s such a special time! Oh, and no red flags were raised during the home inspection so now they’re just working on the mortgage loan.
