THIS IS IT!!
A few weeks ago, I’ve swooned over a house that we saw and swore that it was THE HOUSE OF OUR DREAMS. Well, you will get to meet that house in this post!
Let me start off with some introduction to this AH-MAZING property. It literally has everything that we wanted on our checklist: a city address, brownstone, lots of period details, a yard, etc.
I can’t even begin to tell you what I love about this space. I’m pretty much speechless so I’ll start off with its history. Its a corner unit Post Civil War Brick which means it boasts sunlight from every corner and has many original gorgeous Victorian period details (marble fireplaces, ceiling medallions, hardwood floors, iron cast oven, sky high ceilings, thick crown moldings, etc.)
At over 4200 sq feet with 4 living levels, we will never ever EVER have to move again! There’s also roof access which means only one thing. We can actually build a roof deck and enjoy the city view from it!
We see so much potential in this space as it needs updating. This may be the perfect opportunity to seize such an amazing property. If this house were completely renovated to the 2013 standards, there’s NO WAY we would be able to afford it. We are totally excited about having the opportunity to work w/ developers to restore its beauty and at the same time add some modern amenities (if we bought it).
One HUGE problem. It’s OVER our budget. We are still debating whether or not to dive in this once in a lifetime opportunity…at least that’s how we view it! We shall see..
And IF it does become our home, I can’t wait to rip off all the wallpapers and give it an all-white paint job. With its existing architectural details, this house reminds me of some of the spaces below (they are all equally my dream home too!):

All I can say is fingers-crossed and…toes! May Fate guide us in the right direction. Like my sister C always say, “If it’s meant to be, it will be.” But if it’s not meant for us, I would be really, really crushed and probably hibernate in Zoey’s closet for 2 weeks (that’s what I told the hubs).
Thanks for sharing this house hunting adventure with me…
