And I'm not just talking about the price here, folks.
We went to go visit some friends of ours who recently bought a house an hour north of us - about 40 minutes outside of Toronto. The person they bought the house from paid for beautiful upgrades and got a lot of furniture custom built for the house. Since these friends were moving up in house size and loved the furniture the seller had made, they negotiated a lot of it into their buyer's agreement. The seller already had another place in the city that he was occupying, so he was motivated to sell.
Check out some pictures from the property listing:
The foyer is so high-impact! It's got a two-story-high ceiling and a little balcony on the second floor that overlooks it.
Here is the balcony that overlooks the foyer
If these cabinets were white, I probably never would've left their house and just stared at the kitchen dreamily for the rest of my life :-)
And I love that the kitchen dining area opens up into the backyard and gazebo! Perfect for summer parties... if it ever stops raining....grrrr
A large landing area that would be perfect for an office
These guys were very smart to negotiate in so many furnishings. It made the transition into their new house a lot easier and they were able to sell off all of their old furniture! Bi-winning!
A home like this seems about 3 moves, 4 raises, and 2 kids away for me... but a girl can dream, can't she?
