I wanted the best of both worlds when I started looking for a home. I wanted to live close to downtown, but I also wanted to live in a rural setting. I knew that this was possible because a good friend of mine has this. She lives only 15 minutes from downtown, yet she has the most gorgeous view, which includes just nature, no other houses or buildings. She gave me the name of the real estate agent in Denver that she used, because she had told him she wanted the same thing.
Since he was able to deliver for her, I decided to go ahead and try my luck. I just did not want to look out the window and see my neighbors. It is not that I am anti-social, because I’m not. But, I am around people all day long, and I just wanted to be able to relax when I am home. When I explained this to the realtor that I called, he told me that he actually had a new listing that might be exactly what I want. It is only two bedrooms with two baths, but it is just me who will be living there.
I know a lot of people want big houses, but I knew that I would never marry again, so I didn’t need anything big. Even a two bedroom and two bath house was almost too big, but I knew that I could make it work if the setting was right. When he showed me a picture of it, I fell in love instantly. It is about 20 minutes from where I work, which I am okay with because it is like having my own private oasis once I do get home. This is a true gem of a place, and I am so happy that I found it.
