Heidi Posted January 30, 2012 Share Posted January 30, 2012 23 acres, 1/3 wooded, well, spring running through property, fruit trees, blackberry bushes galore, grapes, chicken coop with chickens, two other buildings for tools/large equipment, completely fenced and ready for livestock, landscaped with huge azaleas and dogwoods. House is 2300 sq. feet, 3 bed/ 2 1/2 bath, fireplace, garage, sunroom, everything is new or in great condition. On a quiet road, surrounded by woods and pasture. It's beautiful. I can't think of a more perfect place. We're making an offer first thing in the morning! :D We currently live in military housing :glare:. They have really strict rules (which are good, I suppose) that require that I be with my young children while they are outside (which is near impossible sometimes). My psycho boy, who is two, ran outside while I was pre-occupied talking to my neighbor in the house. As my neighbor was leaving she said, "oh, a police man has your son!" I go outside and find my boy riding his tricycle in the road, going in circles around the cop car :tongue_smilie: We have some friends whose 2 year old kept escaping and running to the end of their street on post, and their kids were eventually taken from them for two weeks as a result. Anyway, that really shook us up. We are going to be here for a while and that incident is sure to happen again. That was the last straw for us. We can't stand living on post anyway. My kids need land to explore that doesn't require my constant supervision. We need room to breathe and run and live. I immediately jumped on the computer ready to find ANYTHING to get us out of this place. We've looked before and have never found anything remotely close to what we would like. And then we found this property. We wrote down the address, packed the kids in the car, and drove by the house to look at it. We couldn't see much from the road, so we decided to go visit some friends that lived nearby. Turns out the friends know the sellers, called them up to see if we could come by immediately, they said yes. Looked at it, loved it, and we're buying it. It's only been on the market for a few weeks. It's crazy how fast things change. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
