We’re really thinking about it. My husband and I. We think we are about ready to take the plunge.
We will probably be MOVING in the next year or so.
We are staying in Kentucky. That's settled. It’s our home and we love it here. If you’ve been reading my blog for awhile you know that we travel to Lexington quite often. It’s the closet metropolitan area to us a little over 2 hours away. It’s the “stomping grounds” for most Eastern Kentuckians for shopping, nice restaurants, and entertainment.
We are ready to downsize. The dilemna? Downsize to what?
La Belle Époque has been our dream home but it’s time to move forward into the next chapter.
Here are the options we are considering:
1. BUILD a Jack Arnold French Country home OR
2. RENOVATE/RESTORE an historic home!
We have been looking at several grand homes in some of Lexington’s most charming and historic neighborhoods lately. I love the building process (we've also been pouring over Jack Arnold house plans, too) but I’m not sure if I’m ready to tackle a complete gut job and renovate.
We’re really torn between the two choices. That’s why we are beginning the house hunting process a head of time so we can make the right decision for us.
New vs Old
Charm/Character vs Pristine
French Country vs ???
I’ll be taking some photos to share with you the types of things we are looking at. Come to think of it...Is this downsizing??? lol
Any thoughts? I'd love to hear your opinions.
