We live in an area of prime real estate. The two houses across the street and the house next door have been sold for a very nice chunk of change.
The two across the street were sold to developers to rebuild. They have already taken down one house and will be starting on the second one soon I guess.
The sounds of a back hoe digging up a foundation....IS NOT....music to my ears :(
The view from my sewing room window......
They are building mega houses. The two that are going in there are ugly in my humble opinion.
One around the corner sold recently....it had a nanny suite, a 400 bottle wine cellar, a 7.1 movie theater, a gym and a built in office. You get the picture at how large the new houses are. The neighbourhood is really changing fast. We've lived here about 38 years and the neighbours that sold next door even longer.
We get realtors are our door and on the phone asking us to sell...it's tempting:)
I think it's going to be a long noisy dusty summer.
I found this interesting blog yesterday and I thought I'd share. Here's the description.......
