What was it about YOUR old house that made you buy?
I'm curious about the old house buyers on this forum - what was it about your particular house that made you say, "yes, this is the one"?
My husband and I fell in love with an old house this weekend that, on the surface, has a lot 'wrong' with it - it needs a complete cosmetic overhaul, all the major systems need to be replaced and there might even be a structural issue with one wall, hallelujah. BUT...that house speaks to my heart in a way no house has ever done. I love the old flocked wallpaper, the beams, the gracious proportions of the rooms, the salvageable kitchen cabs and bathroom fixtures. But beyond that stuff, it just feels like there are good ghosts in the place, you know?
What were your feelings when you first walked into your old house?
