Cottage for Sale



As most of you know from my last post.  Terry got a new Fire Chief position in a community north of where we live now.  About an hour and half commute.  So we are going to have to sell this cottage and move again.
I hate the idea of moving again but if Terry is happy in this job then I am willing to move again.  We are hoping to find a new cottage in an area just south of the community he works for so it is not too far for me to drive to my daughters for babysitting.  You know my part time job LOL!!

The community he is working for is a Fire District that is a combination of two towns.  North Chicago borders these two towns on almost all sides.  It is almost like a small Island inside of the north side of Chicago.  

It is a very sweet, rich in culture and established  area.  Most people that live there grew up there and their family before them grew up there etc.  They are very loyal to the community in which they live.  This community is family friendly and a safe and secure place to live and you still have the big ole city of Chicago in your backyard.  So a lot of people that work in the city of Chicago love this area to live.

We just need to be a little further south so my driving to my family obligations is not a big commute and Terry is still near the community he will be serving.
 I will be honest,  I have always been a suburban girl.   A city girl not so much!  There are a few quaint towns just south of where Terry will be working.  Hoping we can find something to call home in these areas.

That will bring Terry close to the community he serves and me close to family and friends that are a big part of our lives.

In the meantime Junk Chic Cottage II will be getting ready to go on the market soon.

I thought I would give you a little tour of this cottage we created less than a year ago to be our home.




This house gets tons of light.  That is what I love most about this house.  How bright and open it always feels.


Nice big windows that let lots of light in.  The houses behind us are set back and have a wooded area between so it is very private and I can keep very light sheers on my windows to really let the light in.

The kitchen is an open galley kitchen.  Even with the open shelves there is plenty of lower cabinets and a large pantry for storage.


Mr. Cooper is not for sale with the house!  He is just my little photo bomber!!!!  He thinks because I am in the kitchen, I am not trying to take a picture but I am getting him a treat!!!

Down Stairs is a finished basement that served as our family room and Terry's Fireman Cave.




Two large bedrooms up stairs.  The guest room is a good size I have a king bed in this room.

Large Guest Bathroom.

Large Master Bedroom.

Big windows in the master bedroom for lots of light.


His and Hers Master Bedroom Closets. Such an asset to have your own closet and he has his own!

Large Master Bathroom.




High Ceilings going up stairs with board and batten trim to the staircase and hard wood steps.







Natural light streams in all rooms of this house.
Nice little corner nook for my office area.

Nice open entry way.

This is not all the rooms but it is the majority of Junk Chic Cottage II.   I hope the right buyer will walk in and love this home as much as I have.

Have a wonderful rest of the week.
Hugs,
Kris
