Bringing up the house?

Whew! As if getting ready for a wedding and an overseas honeymoon weren't enough ...

Bethany and I spent Friday looking at a house at 2816 SMU Blvd. It's a cute yellow house located four blocks from campus, to blocks from the tennis courts, 5 blocks from the SMU Barnes and Noble and La Madeleine. So, needless to say, EXCELLENT location.

The house is a two-bedroom, one bath house with a living room, dining room, kitchen and a study. There is SO MUCH storage space (nearly every room has two closets), including several built-in bookcases.

The back yard is rather large, and has several good trees. There is a concrete slab for outdoor furniture, which would make a great place to hold outdoor get-togethers.

The interior is bordered and painted in antique white. There are several pics of the inside, and the house really seems to suit our style.

There is central heat and air (not a given in these old houses), but there is also a fireplace.

My favorite feature is the study. The previous owners built in a custom computer desk with lots of work space.

All-in-all, the house looks promising. We are looking to rent it, not buy it and should have a final decision within a few days.
