Why do you love your old house?
Since I was a little girl, I have always dreamed of owning an old house. Maybe it was too many trips to Greenfield Village when I was a kid. After many years of living abroad in very modern apartments, we are moving to place with the possibility of an older home. We located a beautiful home with octagonal bedrooms, butternut trim and built ins, and stained glass frames for most windows. It has a three foot thick stone foundation. No upgrades to electric in at least 40 years, same with plumbing.We intend to get a good inspection, and speak with contractors.
So, give me your reasons why we should do this, and not buy one of the repossessed Mc Mansions in their neighborhood. Old house haters are trying to discourage me. What do you love about your old house?
P.S. Here is the listing for the home.http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/7215-N-Ann-Arbor-St-Saline-MI-48176/24729226_zpid/
