Gizmo has been surveying new real estate options. He likes the area but is tired of living on the basement level of the air compressor shed. It's pretty noisy! He says he would like a little better landscaping around his home. These are some of his favorite options:
This luxurious waterfront home boasts a porch branch for sunning and is a split level large family dwelling. It has a river stone pier. It is "move in ready", has a very nice entrance but no exit--could be a problem. The seller says a back entrance could easily be made, the attic is unfinished. Gizmo seems to like it but I don't know; it looks expensive.
This quaint home has more of a cozy cottage feel, lovely hardwood with moss coverings throughout. Beautiful rustic beams, also "move in ready", gorgeous views of the stream, and is within walking distance of the corn pile. The door looks a little narrow to me but who knows. Gizmo says he has a beaver friend who can enlarge the door but I fear it would ruin the appearance and the structural integrity.
This distinguished historic home comes "as is." The previous owners were rats who left town in a very big hurry. No one knows where they went or why they left! It has a rustic appeal with natural seasoned wood. Low taxes, an excellent skylight. Perfect opportunity to add your own personal touch, a handy rodent's delight. The foundation is a little rough. Gizmo liked the spongy flooring. It does come with an old formal overgrown herb garden. It has stood the test of time with it's classic design.
Gizmo has asked me to talk with an insurance agent about insuring these potential homes. How do you insure a riparian hole? I'm a little concerned.
Until next time . . .
