In a perfect world




Can you believe this AMAZING house was only $44,000!!?? I ran across this cute property while leisurely driving through the West End and fell in love. It's a 3 bedroom/1 bath bungalow home with original hardwood floors, fixtures, and a BUTLER'S PANTRY! I've always wanted a butler's pantry to refinish. So, I spent last summer trying to find a way to purchase it, to no avail. Since I'm already a home owner and this home was so cheap, there were requiring me to pay cash, which I did not have. It also needed some work (replace a/c, ceiling repair, new kitchen cabinets, etc.), so this was out for me. But I LOVE this house, and I believe that one day it will be mine. Atlanta has really good deals on some great homes right now--I wish I could get in on the market!
In an ideal life you'd find me in the mist of renovating a 1930s cottage (like this), however in real life, I am always updating or renovating something in my own home, which unfortunately, does not fall in to the aforementioned category. It was built in/around 1984, and I guess I'd call it a cape cod style home in a country neighborhood. But I don't actually live in the country, just a great little neighborhood. Decorating is an on-going process for me since my mood changes every year or two, but when I'm finally finished, that will be my sign that I need to move. Until that time, there's always something to do . . . .
