The Tuscan House
We came very close to buying another house recently. We had been considering the "Bunny House" for a while and at the same time were looking at a house further back in Marsh Landing that we referred to as the "Tuscan House" due to the style of the exterior. We liked a lot of things about the house. It had an absolutely amazing view from the back, was in a nice part of the neighborhood, was brand new, had nice finishes, and had a floorplan that would probably work ok for us. Although it was at the top of our price range, it was a bit of a compromise though. It didn't have a circle drive, the loft was a bit too open and would be noisy, it was only a 4 bedroom house, and the pool wasn't exactly the way we would have wanted it. It was all still very nice and we ended up putting in an offer on it.
The offer ended up getting accepted, and while we were in the inspection phase, I decided that I wasn't really comfortable with the arrangement. We had negotiated a circle drive, and a few other things, but I started to get a lot of anxiety about how long it would take to sell our house, and how it would all work out. I discussed my feelings about everything with Andrea and thankfully she was supportive and we worked through it. At this time, we're getting our house ready to put it on the market and it should be listed in a few days. There's a lot more up in the air with this plan, however I believe it will be a bit safer and I'm hopeful it will all work out.
