I have to admit, given the somewhat somber exterior and the homes proximity to a commuter rail line, we had some initial trepidation in going to the first open house. Once we got inside the home, I think we were both sure that this was going to be our first place. After spending some time, noticing that the rail line was not that audible, and seeing the opportunity present in the space, we were set to make an appropriate offer which was quickly accepted. The overall process was very smooth ( specters of our first home purchase attempt jump up here, thank you Tula for not being so helpful)
At any rate, here are some images of the home upon first visit. The original home owners furniture and decorations are shown here ( not quite our taste )
Living Room with knee-wall columns - fir hardwood floors throughout. Old "Rococo" Radiators through the house too.
Dinning Room - faux fireplace - built in china cabinet
Somewhat dated but very usable "European kitchen"
Stained glass detailing. The house has four stained glass windows
Foyer and stairs.
Upstairs are three bed-rooms and one of the two baths... also a walk up attic.
More pictures to follow soon
