As promised a thousand moons ago, here is the first official house tour.
These pictures were taken for the listing so we get a good idea of how they had the house set up.
Almost all the flowers you see are already dead.
I am a flower killer.
I'm thinking of all the fun things we can hang for the holidays here!
This is the living room when you first walk through the front door, which is to the left in this picture.
They didn't have the stairs shown on the listing so here is a shot after we're already in.
There are actually two different greens there and the bookcase is already partly dismantled but you get the idea.
At the top is access to the attic aka christmas decoration storage.
I love how open this is.
The front door is just to the right.
This is the dining room and one of the sliding doors to the back yard.
Here is the kitchen, you can see the dining room at the far end.
A little eating area between the kitchen and the family room.
I love that you can see the back yard from all of these windows.
I like to know when Peanut is trying to pick up spiders and is busy eating dirt.
The family room with a fireplace I can't wait to use in the winter.
I think so far, that although this rooms lends itself perfectly to a TV room that I would like to keep it TV-less and make it really kid friendly.
That sounds odd considering it has the fireplace but I'd rather make the front room a more adult room,
in hopes that we can walk into the house and not see a bunch of toys.
I feel like the less Peanut sees the TV the less he wants it on and so it'll either be hidden or gone completely from the room.
There is another set of sliding doors to the back yard.
The view from the top of the stairs.
The master bedroom. This room is actually much larger than it looks.
To the left is a very large, long window and the ceiling is very high on one side.
The master bedroom is above the family room.
The master bathroom, closets to the left, shower and separate potty to the right and perhaps my favorite... behind the wall you see on the right is the linen closet.
The bathroom is huge and the ceiling is high.
The only drawback is that the light through those windows is a rude wake-up call should we be so lucky to sleep until 7:15 am.
These rooms they remodeled not to long ago, adding an additional room in the front of the house.
I love the windows and light and they both have views of the mountains.
Both of these bedrooms are above the garage and entryway.
This is Peanut's room.
Although in person the color is this room was a vivid lime green, we loved how bright and cheerful it was. In my opinion, this is the best room in the house. This was completely added on to the house.
I liked the color so much that I chose a softened version of it for Peanut.
It went from vivid lime green to what I think of as lime sherbet but is called something like Frosted Garden.
Of course, it's only fitting that the prince live in here.
He also has the only walk-in closet.
Apparently they were originally going to build out differently and what started as a hallway ended up as a walk in closet.
For a little boy.
Here is our new back yard.
No more packing a bag and stroller to get the kid outside.
Now I just open the door and go back inside for a nap.
I kid, I kid.
They were kind enough to leave the enclosure you see on the left, under which Peanut now has his own house.
We've already used our BBQ several times and I love how everything is nice and shaded so the sun isn't glaring through all the wonderfully double-paned windows.
That concludes our house tour for today.
I'll keep you posted on renovations, the house should be furnished and completed by the time Peanut is in college.
We love the house, by the way.
