COME BE MY NEIGHBOR!
On Saturday, Sept 3 at 10:00, that is exactly what is happening at my neighbors house. The auction is being provided by Gary Auction. (You won't often see me link to competing agencies, but I really do want a good turnout for this! Although, I don't think they need to worry. I can think of 10 people already interested in this house... and have seen numerous cars pulling in and taking pictures!
Sadly, just a few months ago, we lost my sweet neighbor (who lived well into her 80's). I say sweet, because I've heard wonderful stories about her. Unfortunately, we never got to meet her. She fell and broke her hip just 2 weeks before we moved into our house. If there's one thing people said about her over and over, it was that she LOVED her garden. Even in her 80's, you'd see bent over pulling weeds from her garden bed (imagine that garden cutout decoration... only in real life). You might have even seen her crawling up a ladder to check her gutters. She about gave her neighbors heart attacks at times.
It's a cute little brick ranch on 2.5 acres overlooking a 130 acre horse farm (horse farm view... no work!). While the exterior and interior have been beautifully maintained, it hasn't been updated in decades... 40 years or more? It's a blank slate.
The land is 2.5 FLAT acres, already fence in the back (got a horse?) with an absolute GORGEOUS view from the front yard (maybe I'm a bit biased, but I LOVE our view).
Be warned, though, when people ask you where you live... you'll have to say "Estalene's old house."
