1962 Cavalier Estates

Lovely house we put an offer on and was accepted...want it so bad we went a little over the asking price, even in this crummy housing market. That's still a deal in this neighborhood....we've not felt so strongly about any other house...perfect modest house in the perfect location! Built in 1962, it's 1,616 sq. ft., 3 beds, "1.75" baths, and a small swimming pool with a cool mosaic tile swordfish at the bottom. With some original features, like the bathroom tiles and the two globe lights above the front door...for us, it's so positively's odd, but we both felt "this is the place, this is home!" Now it's the waiting game and spending money on inspections and appraisals. Already getting ahead of myself and envisioning color schemes. Keeping my fingers crossed! This will be the "before" picture! The grass and shrubs have been neglected while it's been vacant, but if all goes well, the next photos will show better. I love this house!! And the Lovebirds love the trees! It isn't ultra-modern...maybe more "contemporary ranch". This photo doesn't show it very well, as it had been a rental for several years and was not cared for very well, but not destroyed, either. Still, a great deal at a rock bottom price. Not huge, but who needs's a very good floor plan..where you can get to any part without having to cross through another room. Fuck urban lofts....the tired, pretentious wanna-be's can have them.
