Read all about our new apartment, here. I snapped a few pictures of the house after we signed the lease, so here is a little house tour. Ignore the mess of the apartment, we signed the lease at 8:30 in the morning and the current tenant had just gotten out of bed, and I’m not sure she expected us to be taking pictures of her house.
Let’s go, shall we:
Here is the outside of the house. Our apartment is in the upper right corner. 🙂
You walk in the entry and are greeted by these stairs.
Once you walk up, you see our doorway. 🙂
Once you open the front door, you see the foyer (what will be Drew’s office) and then the living room through the French doors. Look at those gorgeous hardwood floors! 🙂
When you look back into the foyer from the living room, this is what you see! Those windows are so pretty! This picture cracks me up because Drew and the landlord thought they were hiding from the camera, but they are still very much visible, obviously.
I love that the view out of these windows is pretty too. Lots of trees and greenery. 🙂
Moving out of the foyer we go into the living room.
The doorway on the side of the living room leads to a long hallway. The first door you see is the kitchen, the second door is a bedroom, the door at the very end of the hallway is the utility room and if you turn right beside the utility room you see the bathroom and second bedroom.
Coming down the hallway to the first door, we see the kitchen.
Newer appliances, gas stove, built in microwave, dishwasher, nice cabinets. 🙂
This is the other side of the kitchen. It has a doorway that opens up to a side entrance to the building and then the door that is open is a nice pantry. There is even room in here for a small table!
This is a private side entrance to the apartment that comes up into the kitchen. We will probably just keep it locked and use it for extra storage. It will be nice to keep Drew’s bike in and the box for the Christmas tree.
Continuing down the hallway, the next doorway is the first bedroom. It is a good size and will be my room/art studio/study office space. 🙂
It has a nice sized closet that is really deep.
At the very end of the hallway, there is a nice-sized utility room. Perfect for laundry, ironing, storage, and our deep freezer.
To the right of the end of the hallway is the bathroom.
It is bigger than what Drew has now!
I love this cute little built-in in the bathroom! 🙂
Then right outside the bathroom is the entrance to the second bedroom. Sorry the picture is a little dark and blurry. I didn’t turn the lights on for any of the pictures.
This is the view looking the other way out of the bedroom. It has two closets and plenty of space. You can see the bathroom door right outside the bedroom door.
So that pretty much wraps it up. You’ve seen the whole house! I love it and I can’t wait until we get to move in! 🙂
When can I visit aunt Caitlin ?
Whenever you want! We don’t move in until May. Maybe you could talk Grandma Susie into bringing you all down sometime this summer! 🙂
