We’ve been living in this wonderful house since we moved to Ithaca in July 2008. When people asked how I liked it, I would often answer, “The only thing I don’t like is that we don’t own it.” Due to George’s perseverance and the help of my family, we now own the house!
Though we weren’t necessarily looking to buy a house–and while it may not be the best time with the current economic situation and accompanying uncertainties–when the opportunity arose to purchase the house, we couldn’t pass it up. I love the layout, the hardwood floors, and the spaciousness. George loves the very large yard we have.
We have started making small upgrades and cosmetic changes–George and Gary (and me, a little) redid a room in the basement to make it a comfortable craft room for me–and we have purchased a new refrigerator, curtains, and rugs. Any large renovations will come much later.
There is plenty of room for guests, so come visit Ithaca and stay with us!
