We found out about this little gem after an underwhelming showing on a house just around the corner. It was not on the market but if you know anything about my realtor she has this keen eye, and ear, for what could be on the market and then somehow gets it for you before the house ever has a chance to hit the market. I took a few steps into the first house we were going to see that Saturday morning and Jenni stopped me and said there was a house that might be worth looking into on my favorite street in Edmond. I stopped in my tracks and headed for the door. Twenty minutes later we were walking through this beauty.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder right? The previous owner had bought this to restore it to its historic beauty and then sell. It had been mostly gutted and they added a staircase to the attic which will become the master suite. We put an offer on the house 2 days later. We got to work and began finishing the renovations we had yet to finish on our current house so that we could get it on the market. When we got it on the market it sold in 5 days, hallelujah. We closed on this house just recently and the question everyone asks us now is, “when are you starting on the new house?!” lol… our answer… “After we take a vacation!” :). That last 4 months was JAM PACKED. We moved out of our house and into a rent house. Mia started school! Woohoo! Jared got a job that he has been pursuing and working so hard for after 8 months. So many great things have been thrown our way. Its been overwhelming. Overwhelming in a great way. This neighborhood holds such a great community of people. We are so excited to settle in to this house and this season of our lives.
As you walk in the front door you’ll be the “sitting room” with book shelves, cozy chairs and a faux fireplace. A great room to curl up with a book and get lost roaming the halls of Hogwarts. There are two bedrooms and a bathroom through one door way and the other leads to the stairway and then into the kitchen and dining room. We are adding a living room off the back of the house as well. We have an amazing team lined up. I can’t wait to dig in to this project. I’m excited to bring you along through this process with us. In the mean time I will just be over here geeking out over tile samples, lighting and door knobs.
