|These would be our neighbors|
|We would have to drive on this road more than a mile|
Last week I found a beautiful house on line. Fantastic land, decks, landscaping etc. Although it costs a bit more than we'd get for our house, the taxes are lower. This house would be about 3 miles from Josh though how long will Josh remain where he is. We went out to see it. We travelled up and down a very pretty road but these hills would be glare ice in the winter. Not many neighbors: it would be absolutely quiet which Steve would love. Lots of shade from the many trees..but all is moot as now the house is off the market.
There was a second property we were momentarily interested in it. A mansion that we could get to on paved roads that still is in the Ann Arbor school system but has township taxes. Super deluxe house made affordable because it is a foreclosure. However, from the photos alone, I can see water damage and the 2+ acres are ugly. Just flatness and no trees. Last year there was a neo-Victorian near us (but in the township) that sold for half of its value. I bike by it regularly and kick myself for not acting.
And our house is so convenient. We are on the edge of town so I can quickly get out into the country for my runs and bikes. Maybe we could make it a lot better...
