Yes it is true. We are moving! We sold our home (well, it is under contract). It is going to be hard to leave this charming Connecticut home! We had considered keeping it as a rental, but decided to sell. We got an offer before we listed it. Our realtor told some local realtors and one of them brought a family over to see it and the rest is history! We are excited for a new family to love this home as much as we have…and take lots of dips in the pool!
SO many feelings! I feel like I am losing a best friend. Someone who helped this blog get started. Who welcomed my babies. That let me be creative anytime of the day. Hosted a lot of guests. So many beautiful memories! This home was a blessing and we had no idea we would enjoy living in it as much as we have when we bought it six years ago.
We are excited for the next chapter. Our kids are excited too. We are moving out of state and bought a home a couple months ago.….bet you can guess where, back home to Utah! I will show the house this week!! We are moving towards the end of February. Moving will be an adventure to share, can someone say RV LIFE! ha! Yes, we rented an RV to get us to Utah.
Since we were going to list our home, a photographer had come over to take photos and made a floor plan. I thought I would share the photos here! Totally a different style of photos than you are used to seeing of our home, a wide view, which is fun to see! (Update- For more information on our home and to place a back- up offer (incase the sale falls through) you can reach our realtor here).
You also might be curious to know if we sold it furnished. We did not price it to include furniture. But the new homeowners are buying some pieces and we are giving them some too, like all the outdoor furniture, dining table, sofa upstairs and hanging plants 🌱 I will share more of that soon too!
Small Cape Floor Plan
When we bought this home we called it “the deli house” because it is right next door to a deli (and the deli owner, Ed, lives in the back part) You can see it on the right. At first it seemed weird. But, the deli and the owner ended up being our best neighbors ever! Never judge a book by it’s cover. Ed makes the best breakfast sandwiches in town, we would get them at least once a week. And when our ice maker broke we could just go next door to the Deli for a bag of ice. The deli has a few grocery staples. Perfect when we ran out of eggs or if kids wanted to grab a deli sandwich to take to school! And in the winter, Ed was always out with his snow blower helping with our sidewalk, especially when Kevin traveled for weeks at a time for work!
Our home is also down the street from the Fire Station and Police station…on the same grid, so whenever our power went out it was back on within an hour! Compared to our friends a street behind us had been without power for a couple days. Little perks we didn’t realize until after we lived here.
I should have taken down Christmas before he took these photos for the listing! But I was just planning on giving them photos we had taken in the Spring. One thing you learn when a photographer is over, they aren’t a stager 😉 so you better have everything perfect before you leave! (Photographer was @OliverBencosmePhoto)
The yard isn’t look photo-ready right now, so here are some photos I took.
There you go! Last of the home tours from this house! I will be back to share what is next for us and the new (old) house!
