I've Found the PERFECT House For Me!!!!!~

Friday morning while my friend Kay and I were headed to another rental property (we were doing a drive by lol), we spotted a beautiful rock house with a For Rent sign in front of it.. We missed the number so we turned around and went back to get it. We had already been to one place that looked really nice on the outside but was horrendous on the inside. It smelled so bad that the scent lingered even after we had gone! We decided to get out and look in the windows while Kay gave the number a call. Turns out the landlord was inside!!

We went inside and as soon as I walked in I KNEW that this was the house for me. It has hardwood floors, 2 fireplaces, built-ins, a formal dining area, a small breakfast nook, a front and back porch, arches, a sizeable bathroom that is in good condition,a laundry room, and good sized bedrooms! The closets were small (as they are in most older homes), but had built-in shelves on the sides that would be perfect for shoes.. I was in love.. The only thing I didnt like was the ceiling fan in the livingroom and the paint color in the livingroom and hallway.

I started thinking that the house couldnt be in my price range... but it was!!! Another score! AND no neighbors on either side.. Another score since I sleep during the day.. The neighborhood is also perfect.. BUT there were a lot of other interested people.. I put my application in anyway and talked to the landlord as much as possible.. And it worked!!!! He picked me. I got the house!!!!!!!! AND he is going to let me paint over the ugly color :)

Here is the only picture I have for now.. More to come when I get moved in!!!

  1. Oh, that looks darling. I see so many houses like that in downtown Denver, and it always amazes me how differntly people can decorate the same style home. I look forward to seeing what you do with it.
