Did you see that? I said, "house tours" with an "s" - plural.
Because that good girl, Janet, asked so nicely. That Janet.... she's such a nice girl. Janet? I'll bet you were a real goody-goody in your school days, weren't you? Kidding. I need to go visit Janet.
So here's the fixer-upper people. It's a 2 bedroom, 1 bath home with 1223 sq. feet of living space.
It's 8 blocks away from the grocery shop where the people with the smelly heads shop - so totally within walking distance. It's a really great little neighborhood. And?
It's only $164,720.39! I'm kidding about the 39 cents. But that number is a little strange. Janet? Why would someone pick a number like that? (For those of you who don't know Janet, she's a Realtor out on the East Coast).
So here she is! A little Dutch Colonial. I love Dutch Colonials, don't you? I have a thing for dormers. I think we could do a lot with that little portico there, don't you? And she definitely needs a new roof.
Okay. Here's where things get a little gross. The living room. Specifically the living room carpet. Oh I know, I know. You and I will just rip it up when we buy it, but if I were selling this house, I would rip it up myself before I put it on the market.
I've always wanted a fireplace. We could beef up that mantel, couldn't we?
Sure. Let's get a shot of that dirty carpet. Blech! The living room is 22x12. I would kill for a living room that size.
Dining room. 12x14. I'd ask them for the table. It's cute.
Okay. Here's where I throw up in my mouth a little bit. Those cabinets are so. gross. The kitchen is 12x12. So really, in my world, that's a pretty good size. I could make that work.
The bathroom. Really, it's not as bad as the kitchen, in my opinion.
One of the upstairs bedrooms. There are only 2 and they are 16x14 and 12x14.
Goah. I love dormers. I know this photo shows absolutely nothing, but it's utter p*rn for a house lover, isn't it?
The back of the house.
What do you think about that one?
House #2. This photo of the front of the house is really small. Sorry. I don't know why.
This house is near one of the fabulous lakes in Minneapolis. I've talked about why I don't generally cross the river to show you houses. But I can't help myself.
This one is in a great neighborhood by 'the lakes' . It's really close to some great shopping and restaurants. You want to live here. Trust me. You do.
This house has 3 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms. Really....it does. 5 bathrooms.
It's got about 3500 square feet of living space for about $1.7 million dollars.
Oh, I know, I know. It's a bit pricey. But it's so Caaaaayyyyyyyuuuuuuuttttttaahhhhhh!!!! (translation: it's cute.)
And I want to tell you: It's not easy to find a cute, casual, cottagey house in this price range and in this neighborhood.
So quit your complaining about the price. I worked hard to find this one for you. Don't be so ungrateful.
Again. Sorry about the tiny photo.
The entry way. I heart that chandy.
Here's the dining room looking into the living room. Dining room is 16x13. Again the chandelier. Love it.
Another shot of the dining room.
Hello gorgeous. 14x15.
Family room 19x15.
The master. It's 19x15.
Look at this porch. So cute.
One of the bedrooms. Love the windows.
Another Family room! I think this one is in the basement.
