You should know that laughter lurks in the hallways. We left lots of good karma in the duct work and crawl spaces. Fabulous memories remain in all closets, the attic, the basement and the garage. We tried to pack them all up but there were just too many, so we left them for the next folks.
Something in the water made Della's hair curl into darling ringlets. A fox family would dance in the backyard by the light of the moon. The neighbors are delightful. The street is quiet and safe and perfect for bike riding or strolling after dinner. The pines reach the sky and house owls and hawks and fairies.
The house is quaint. It has NOT been remodeled within an inch of it's life. One time a friends' husband came to pick up their child and he blundered in and said... "this place could be nice if you totally remodeled it." He said that OUT LOUD.
No, Friutcake, I replied, it would then look like your McCottage on your treeless acre. I did NOT say that out loud. I transmitted it via telepathy to the universe...it's probably still swirling around up there.
Anyways. This house is not new. It's lived in. It's loved in. Here are some pics in no particular order.

Della's room. She potty trained herself here. That alone is worth the asking price.
Living room with fireplace. There is also a den with a fireplace, but alas, I have no photo.
Kitchen agin. Look at how clean it is. We installed cork floors to muffle the squeals of laughter.
The property sits on a quiet acre and has a separate garage apartment. It has a renter now, but we used it as a studio space for the kids. Reading, Writing, Art, and Poetry remain in the nooks and crannies. As does my desire to ever homeschool again.
Sooooo. To sum it all up in realtor terms.... this charming 3BR 1.5 BA cottage, built in 1936, all hardwood floors, LR, den, separate DR, on a quiet acre in excellent neighborhood with newly remodeled 1BR studio apt with separate driveway and good rental income....
All this can be yours for only....
I should stop here real quick and say that if you live in Durango, CO you need to put your ass in a seat for this one because IT IS NOT FAIR!!!
All this can be yours for $159,500.
Ridiculous, is it not.
