I travel the world and am truly amazed with the sights, cultures, and people but in my eyes there is no place like home.

This house is taunting me

Do you have a house that has always pulled at you? The house you can picture yourself living in? This house does that to me and has just been listed for sale.

I have no idea what makes this house stand out. I even blogged last fall about how much I love it. It’s not super fancy, big, or flashy. It’s just a quaint home in my historical neighborhood. It has been for sale approximately four times in the last fifteen years and every time I look at it. The current owners have done a LOT of work (Removing layer upon layer of floral wallpaper for one) and it looks great.

I can envision the changes I would make to transform it to my home. It’s very affordable, but it only has one bathroom (shower – no tub which is huge to me) and a VERY small yard.

I am pretty sure I would miss my large private yard and I know I would miss having a bathtub. It’s actually much smaller than my home but that is part of the appeal. So many days I feel overwhelmed by the massive size of my home and I rarely use most rooms. This home would be cozy. But at the same time my home holds so much history, so many memories, and it is finally looking the way I desire. Decisions!

My dream home is a farmhouse or Tudor in the country on an acreage with a garden, chickens, cows, etc…

I love it! And I'm ALL for down-sizing. :)

Such a cute house. I love all the woodwork. I would be tempted by that house too!

I think it's adorable. Love the upstairs balcony. I have a house picked out in my town - not sure what I'll do if it ever goes up for sale, although I've never seen the inside. Maybe then the dream will die:)

Full of beautiful details. Hard decision.
