As pretty as they are, though, my eyes were magnetized by the cutest thing I spotted INSIDE one of the cute old houses for sale that I visited, which has since sold. Our grandkids would LOVE to find THIS in a home, don’t you think? THIS is a little “hidey-hole” – just big enough for kids and puppies and kitties to crawl through and located in the closet wall that adjoins two rooms that are great for kids or grandkids.
This cute, beautifully remodeled home was built in 1920. It’s one of the many delightful old homes in the area. The current owner, a very talented architect, obviously enjoyed working on and updating this old house. It’s full of lovely, fun, useful, and practical upgrades like these adorable hidey-holes. The kitchen is another grand example of that as it’s full of cupboards and drawers that are very handily placed.
Of course, loving books the way I do, I would have this room packed full of them. Then again, my grandkids would immediately be thinking, “my hobby collection would look GREAT on all these shelves!.”
And take a gander at the garage. Oh my! It would be a terrific place for my grandkids bikes, my senior mom’s garden supplies, and our garden tools. Of course, my sweet sons-in-law would all think “BIG TOOL SPACE!”
But my grandkids (can you tell who rules the roost – at least for this article 🙂 ) would all be melting at the sight of the fun playhouse that goes with this lovely old home. They were blessed with another old house a couple of years ago that also came with a built-in fort and swing-set. That’s always such fun when you can buy a house complete with play equipment. It definitely makes a move much easier for the kids, I think.
Oh my, I do enjoy visiting the delightful old houses in the neighborhoods around me. Particularly when they are this cool! What do you think? 🙂
