OPEN HOUSE Sat Aug 27 1-3pm. What a cute house! And Lord, what a thick, luxurious lawn. As you pull your 6-year-old niece by the hand up the driveway, she notices the swirls in the grass where the deer have been laying and comments that the lawn looks like guinea pig hair. As you nod your head in agreement, you step into the entryway of 150 Holly Lane and your niece begins hopscotching through the home, claiming each room as her own. The gleaming hardwood floor is what you notice first, but you know the front room you’ve strolled into is perfect for a formal living room. Through the dining room and into the kitchen, you’re already taking notes and rearranging in your mind. You know you LOVE this neighborhood and so far, the house is ticking your boxes. You need space, darn it, and you want a place you can tweak to perfection. The keeping room off the kitchen has a wood stove and you love the thought of cozy dinners here in this space. The great room behind you is absolutely huge and you can’t help wondering how it would look as an owner’s suite. Hmm. That workshop off the great room has a multitude of possibilities. Private office? Reading room? Yes please! A full bath and two guest rooms are found back the hall, and you know a certain teenager would love to occupy that owner’s suite. You catch a glimpse of your niece’s sparkle sneakers as she cartwheels outside and you join her there as she lays claim to one of the storage sheds. Yes, you agree that the one with the porch would be perfect as a Barbie dream house. Finally! A home big enough for all of you in a neighborhood just a hopscotch and a jump from downtown Athens.
