Well, it finally happened. We bought our first house.
We fell in love with this three bedroom home on our second day of house hunting back in March. The house was built in the sixties and has some really great mid-century details. It’s been gutted and re-done from top to bottom. Dylan always wanted to buy a turnkey property. I wanted a fixer upper. We compromised and put an offer on this place.
We really like the neighborhood and location. We are a 15 minute bike ride from White Rock Lake and the Arboretum, and about 5 miles from Downtown Dallas.
I’m already dreaming of ways to decorate the space. I love the details in the great room, with the open galley kitchen, wood beams, fireplace and french doors to the backyard. We are shocked that we got everything we wanted in our price range. We always hear how that never happens.
Next week I’m meeting with a designer for a consultation. I can’t wait to make this home our own.
Here’s a peek of the new abode:
