I wanted to find a nice house to live in, but I am not the type to want something new and sparkling. I think older homes have so much personality, so that is why I decided to hire a realtor when I started looking at luxury real estate in Englewood CO. All I was finding on my own were houses that had been built within the last 10 or 20 years. While they were definitely nice, they just did not have the personality I was looking for. I wanted something much older that is just as charming today as it was when it was first built.
I knew that there had to be older homes for sale, but I was just not finding any myself. When I contacted a realtor and explained what I wanted, she told me that they do have a lot of homes that become available but are not publicly listed. She showed me a few houses, but they were still too modern looking. I told her I wanted something that looked like it was built 100 years ago but still had a lot of personality and charm to it.
The next house she showed me was a 1923 home built in the middle of a three acre plot of land. It has three bedrooms, three baths and a completely renovated kitchen. The nice thing though is that while it was a newer kitchen, they maintained the older style of the home. The pictures were perfect, and I made an appointment to see it in person. As I walked through the rooms, I knew that I was going to buy it. I did have to pay top dollar for it, mainly because of the land associated with it, but that didn’t bother me at all. I cannot wait to move in once all the paperwork is done!
