A few pics of our new home....






We wrote a bid and the owners (very nice people, btw) accepted it within the hour. The house is in a small subdivision and our (I love writing that) home backs up to a preserve. There is 40 or 50 feet of yard behind the pool and it is semi paved. We are thinking this would be the perfect place for a fire pit and some comfy our door chairs.

The master bedroom has a door opening out to the pool and a wonderful window that opens the room to the preserve. The shower is a double header (thinking here...save water, shower with a friend? lol) with double sinks and a garden tub. There is a formal dining area, an amazing kitchen, to quote E with an eating area (we will be planting foliage out side this window that looks into our neighbors, nice people though they may be!)

We are about 5 minutes from historic downtown Tarpon Springs and the Anclote River with the Greek area and the sponge docks. Think of my bike rides and the pictures out there just waiting to be taken!

Scroll down for more pics....color me a happy camper!

Wowee, Jules! Looks like your awesome house will have been worth the wait!
I still have scary memories of when my parents bought my childhood home-I was 8- and as the owner walked us through the house to the master bathroom, she pointed out the double-shower and said, "Mr. C and I like to share" Ick. Really icky for an 8 year old to hear!

YAY! Congratulations! How exciting, not only did you get your house sold, but you found one you liked! I hope the time frame will work for you and you won't be living in the mini-van. Your adhesives will go bad...LOL!
