03:00 pm - I Bought A House!
I haven't posted here in 37 weeks. A lot has happened. Mainly, sickchixxx.com is redesigned, back up and now totally under my control. Ummm...I have done too much to list so just read my blogs on MySpace if you care about my misadventures and travels.
For the last two weeks I have been in negotiation to buy this incredible estate here in Flint.
Well, they accepted my offer today so I am in there!!!
Contrary to what some people think, Flint DOES have some excellent areas and since I have been pleased since I got here in 2005 I decided to bite the bullet and buy a home. The neighborhood is very much like Hancock Park in Los Angeles with old mansions etc.
And what a home it is!!
4 bedroom, 4.5 bath estate
3860 sq. ft on 1.6 acres of land with a private drive and a huge basement that will become my dungeon. No pics of the basement yet, sorry. These are from the realtor. I wish I had more to share. I will share more as I move in next month!
Front of the house (will need new spooky gray paint)
Back of the house, not visible a bridge over a pond where my koi will live!
Huge deck and inground pool with a pool house!
Inside the pool house there is a hot tub!
Giant kitchen, will need new steel appliances to my taste
Huge formal dining room, not..that is the seller's furniture. I want a Saarinen tulip set if possible.
Upstairs hallway and stairs, view into foyer below
Giant master bedroom with a fireplace
Destined to become my home gym, just off kitchen and through dining room opening to deck.
It has a gorgeous library!! A LIBRARY!
Enormous living room
I have plans for the yard. I am going to have planetvector set up the koi pond and build a huge Tiki god for me...and the upstairs hallway will have this painted and stenciled by jellifer
It is an amazing house and needs a little TLC as the family that just moved out was there for over 20 years and it is a little dated in some areas, but nothing I can't handle!
