My good friend Heidi called me at lunch time and suggested that we grab a bite and then visit a house that has just come up for sale.  Heidi is a Realtor and needed to see the house in case one of her clients could be interested.  After a quick lunch, we headed over to the remodeled ranch style house.  (This photo is from the internet listing)

To my surprise, it was located on the very street where I grew up.  40 years ago, the house was a plain jane ranch house just like mine.  Just about everyone on the street had small children and we all played on the cul-de-sac after school, running in and out of each other’s homes.  My brother was great friends with the little boy who lived in the house.

The first owners have long since moved away.  I image that they left when we did.  All of us grew up, went off to school and had our own families.  These wonderful homes needed new families.  The house has since had a major renovation.  It was really beautiful.  I hope that a young family moves in and has as good a time on the street as we did. The first three photos come from the internet listing site.

I took the following photos this afternoon.

The pool house also had a bedroom. The house has 5 bedrooms and 6 baths.  It is only 4270 sq ft. and was built in 1953, just like mine.  Heidi said that there will probably be multiple offers and that the house will sell well over the asking price.  Wow!
