There's the crazy-expensive little one across the river, the other one across the river and then the one with the kitchen........
Hmmmmm........I think I will go with the crazy-expensive one across the river. And there is a river separating the two towns. But first, let me explain:
- There's St. Paul and Minneapolis. Now, I'm speaking veeerrrry generally here, but here's a quirky little thing: If you live in St. Paul (or it's suburbs) and you're going to Minneapolis, chances are? It makes your palms sweaty. It's just too big-city for most St.Paulites, what with all those one-way streets and all....scary!
- If you live in Minneapolis (or it's suburbs): Why bother with St. Paul? St. Paul is Minneapolis' frumpy little sister. Much more humble. There aren't as many flashy cars whizzing about, and there are only a few destination spots: The Science Museum, The Children's Museum, The Ordway Theater. But that's it.
So, I usually show you houses in St. Paul. Which is getting hard because if you were to peruse the real estate websites with me? You'd notice that St. Paulites (in general) don't have that knack for decorating like they do across the river. It's totally true.
But I'm going to venture to one of my favorite suburbs across the river. Now. I'm a St. Paulite. How on God's green earth would I know about anything in Minneapolis or it's suburbs?
Well. I'm hip. I'm a pretty **snapping my fingers** happinen' chick. Mmmmm hmmm. And I've had to learn about navigating these towns out of necessity: I've had jobs across the river - gasp! And I love to drive around in pretty neighborhoods.
Okay, so here's the house we're going to look at.
It's got 2400 square feet, 3 bedrooms, 2 baths. For $649,900. Oh. And the lot is 60x135 feet. And I'm curious.....maybe to some people this doesn't sound expensive at all. I'm dying to hear from people in other parts....what do you think? Would this be a bargain in your area? Or is it pricey?
Here's the outside: Kind of a cape cod style.
Ahhhh......kitchen shots. Kitchen porn! I'm partial to the white cabinetry, if you haven't noticed. This kitchen has hardwood floors and is 13x11 feet in size.
Ooooo! SHUTTER porn! Love the shutters, people! The living room is 20x13 feet.
The basement is finished with a family room and wet bar. I want my basement finished off like this one. But first we need to drain tile. Hey Lisa? Do you think P-Dub will ever give a free drain tiling job away as a photo naming prize?
And that's it! What do you think? Is it worth that price?
And I tend to be attracted to the smaller, cottagy-homes.......would you rather see the 53 million dollar mansions? Because I aim to please, people!
Next up? Amy's dining room table! Ha haaaaa! Sorry, Aim.
