NY house tour
We had the amazing opportunity to live in upstate NY from 2006-2008.
I have to say I LOVED, LOVED , LOVED this house.
2 doors down was a little neighborhood library. The elementary school was less than 3 blocks away. The community pool and park was a block away. There was a beautiful river at the end of our dead end street. We had a huge double lot in town with beautiful mature landscaping, a huge driveway for the boys to ride their bikes on, a great back yard that we poured our blood sweat and tears into, plenty of room for a garden, you could even see mountains from our kitchen window. The house was overflowing with character, had a great floor plan and not just plenty of space but great separation of space. The neighborhood was peaceful, BEAUTIFUL, seemingly untouched since the 50's. It truly was like living in a Norman Rockwell painting.
Here is a tour of our NY house...
The front entry.
Did I mention there was one house to our left and then the local small,
and very quaint public library.
Side closest to the library.
This was my favorite view of the house.
We redid the backyard, this was our reward.
"Welcome home" I could just feel it when
I first stepped in the front door.
It was love at first sight!
Spacious, updated kitchen.
Kitchen bar area.
Downstairs half bath and laundry room.
Nothing special until you looked up!
This is the skylight you saw as you looked up.
Downstairs living room.
The sunroom... LOVE those windows!!!
We used it a our downstairs TV room.
The dining room was one of my favorite rooms in the
house with it's built-ins and huge picture window!
Our dining room led out to a great screened in porch.
With another great picture window.
The upstairs had this great living area / flex space. LOVED it.
The upstairs secondary full bath, with laundry chute, for real!
With the craziest deepest tub ever!
Master bedroom, nothing ground breaking but certainly sufficient.
There actually were doors on the closet , but we hated them!
