If you remember from this post, one of our goals for 2010 was to purchase a home; one that we could live in indefinitely- never outgrowing it, always loving it. Well....after lots of hard work and frustration, we found THE house and our offer was accepted today! We signed the paperwork this morning and hopefully all else will run smoothly from now until our 45 day escrow closes. We are shooting for Friday to get our inspections done so I will take a few more pictures of our future home then. Until then, here are a few snapshots I took the first time we laid eyes on the property:
Location: Menifee, CA
Sq Ft: 4041
Beds: 4 (with an optional 5th or "loft"/bonus room upstairs)
Entry way. Left is the formal living room which I would like to use as an "office" area to showcase my work and for consultations. To the right is a guest bedroom.
Formal living room
Dining room. Located at the end of the hall in the entry way pic, and to the left. Formal LR, Dining room, and hall all have french doors leading to a stamped concrete patio (one of two).
Kitchen w/ view of dining room behind and left. Complete with granite counter tops, dark cherry cabinets, and stainless steal appliances. The only thing missing is porcelain tile instead of the linoleum that is there now, but we can replace that eventually.
View of the family room from the kitchen. To the left is another set of french doors leading to the backyard and 2nd patio. Fireplace in the upper right, entertainment nook, and then the hallway leading to the bathroom and garage (two car for sure, but it might me 3 car tandem...can't remember).
Landing at the top of the stairs. Behind me is the bonus room/optional 5th bedroom. Straight and to the right leads to the master suite.
View of the bonus room.
Master bedroom looking into the master retreat (aka baby boy's nursery for the first year of his life).
Master bath. to the right is a single sink w/ a vanity inbetween another single sink. Left doorway lead to the toilet, and I think the walk in closet is behind me in this picture.
There are two additional bedrooms upstairs that share a jack-and-jill bathroom and another small walk-in closet in the hallway for storage etc. All in all, a pretty amazing house! We are just praying everything passes inspection and there aren't any hiccups with our financing (we don't expect there will be), and that we will meet some amazing new friends in Menifee. Hopefully our ward is awesome!!! Wish us luck!
