Seven years ago we moved from a beautiful country home into town. We had custom built a beautiful home 5 years prior on a little acreage. One day I had an unexpected health event and it changed our life course. Having 5 little ones under the age of 7, and a husband that worked away, as well as an acreage to care for was just too much for me at the time hence we moved to town. Even though it was the right choice at the time, we have always longed for the country life. Well… the 5 kids under 7 are now 5 under 15 and the time is right to move back to living the country life!
What you are seeing is possibly our future home! I know the home needs a tonne of work … and 4 more bedrooms … but the potential is huge with this property!
This is unexpected change for our family. The original plan was to purchase a lovely heritage home that we have had our eye on for the last little while. We were waiting to put an offer on it until my husband came back from working away for the summer season. It was a gorgeous heritage home that was perfect for our family… move in ready with nothing to fix inside or out! So what happened to that plan???
This came along! For quite some time (years) we have been waiting for a piece of land to come available for us to have our “forever” home on. We browsed many properties over the years but have never found one that was quite right for our needs. Not to mention that land around here can be very pricey for what you’re getting.
I hadn’t browsed the local listings for quite some time as the plan was to put an offer on the other home. The other home was not on an acreage but was beautiful. To make a long story short, I took a peek at the listings and this popped up! It was the first property. Oh my goodness!!! It was the perfect sized piece of land for the perfect price!!! The home isn’t perfect but it will be when we are done with it and …. it comes with a nice sized shop!!!
It was originally a green house at one time but the current owners have it as a mechanic’s shop. There are the same number of windows on the other side as well. This shop will be perfect for my furniture projects as it comes with a paint booth and HUGE air compressor! It also has infrared heating which means I can even paint in the winter :0) !!!
There is even room enough for a couple horses on this land if we choose.
It is close to town and is located on pavement. The home is extremely outdated but well cared for and clean. We have plans to gut the entire place and make it a beautiful country bungalow! I can hardly wait to get started!
Hopefully our current home will sell soon so we can get started on our little dream!
Cross your fingers and say a little prayer that this will happen for us soon!
