How could we not go and take a look at a brick and stone place that has three bedrooms and four bathrooms? I used to live in a Brownstone back east, and seeing a place that reminded me of that in Colorado was pretty neat. It was our Realtors in Denver that called us about the house, and we had to go and see it. We had been wanting to move to the Denver area for months, and this was the first place where both my wife and I had a strong interest in seeing it. We hopped on a plane and flew out to Denver to take a look in person after we saw the pictures online.
At $1.3 million, it was within the budget we wanted to spend on a new home, and it had all the features we wanted. We definitely wanted an open floor plan. These are all the rage now and for good reason. If you have a sprinkler system installed, you do not have to be as concerned about having an open floor plan for safety. We certainly needed three bedrooms as we take our grandchildren every summer for at least a month. Now they could each have their own room instead of rendering the living room a private space for one kid for a month.
The house had to be modern too. We wanted a gourmet kitchen with all of the latest appliances including a refrigerator drawer in the island where the stove is at. We have a refrigerator drawer at our old house, and it is very handy when you are cooking. No more running back and forth across the kitchen to grab a fresh spice or a tablespoon of this or a cup of that. The drawer fridge can hold all of your fresh ingredients you use in cooking. Plus, they are great for holding stuff to make sandwiches.
