The above house is everything I love. It was for sale and then it went off the market for some reason. But the view and the style is just awesome.
That house has the above little breakfast nook which I love. To make it my complete dream home, I would put a crystal chandelier and a white french style round table and chairs.
I would remodel the kitchen to my Martha Stewart Seal Harbor kitchen that can be bought at Home Depot.
I would remodel the master bedroom bathroom to a luxury bath. Complete with a glassed in shower that was marble and a rain shower.
I would have the dining room furnished like the above for fun family gatherings for holidays and special occasions.
I love the idea of a little elegant office with a French style desk and chair.
I would make the laundry room remodeled to look like the above.
I would create a French kitchen garden with herbs and everything for salads.
I would create a secret garden for outdoor dining in the summer.
I would put in a pond and a gazebo and a pond.
I would add a pantry.
And with all that, it makes some nice pipe dreams for a cold winter day.
The house had a really reasonable price on it and if like as little as $40,000.00 was put into it, you could have all that for $300,000.00. Now after the remodeling and little touches to make it your own, it would be exactly as your own taste would be. But that would be my taste.
Because I had a real estate license, I know location is everything. It has to be near work where you could get a good income to pay for it or near skiing or some attraction. That house is not in that location. And that is why it is off the market and why it is at such a reasonable price in my opinion. The resale value would be less then you paid for it. Where as in the right location, you would double your investment.
