After 5+ wonderful years in my awesome Area Four condo, I have decided it’s time to move on to someplace with a bit more space, and so here I find myself, listing my lovely home for sale. Am feeling a bit melancholy because I love this place so much — the bright airiness it always has, despite the weather, the amazing fiery sunsets on view every night from my sofa and my deck, the beautiful curved staircase leading to my door, the gorgeous wide pine floors dating back to 1873 (imagine what they’ve seen!) — but alas, it’s time. I know I’m biased, but I just hope that whoever buys it will love it as much as I do.
My good friend and colleague Natasha Burger will be listing it for me — she’ll be here doing open houses both Saturday and Sunday 12 – 1:30, so stop by and say hi! Here’s the info about my place…
