Welcome and Come In!
Welcome to 8 Makenade Avenue,our little sanctuary, our humble home. It is a semi-detached house and was built in 1935. It is near the train station, town centre, library, post office, grocery store and above all it is just 10-15 minutes walk to where I work. Perfect location!
The previous owners of this house were an elderly couple and has lived here for 50 years. They both love gardening that's why we have this lovely front garden, two green houses (one was demolished), and plenty of plant pots (big and small). hehe
Now we have lived here for just almost 4 months yet it feels like I've lived here 4 years. I fell in love with this house the first time I saw it on our first viewing. And of all the houses we viewed this is just the only house I felt at home and instantly saw myself living in here.
And how we got the house? Quite a chased! I felt so sure of the house even though there were so much to do to update it in a 21st century standard. I told my husband to put an offer but he wasn't sure so we left it for a bit. But because I am dying to get the house, I had a look again through the Internet and it said it has been taken out of the market! Someone has fancied it and put an offer!
I was so furious and upset. I rang the estate agent and alas! he confirmed to me that someone had put and offer and the owner has accepted it! I hurriedly rang my husband, nagged him and just like a brat, I asked him to do something to get it because I wanted it so much!
I was so disappointed and I cried to my mother in-law. And as always she supported me that the house is the right one for us. Actually she liked the house as well, she was the one who saw it in the Internet and told us. Now as I felt hopeless, all I did was prayed and thought if it is for us by hook or by crook we will get it and I left it in the hands of my husband.
He rang the estate agent and put an offer to the house guessing it was bigger than what the first bidder offered. The waiting game was tedious but thanks GOD he planned this house for us, our second offer was accepted! Hooray! We got it!
And since then our bank account hasn't been recovered! haha..Updating it is expensive yet we know in the long run when we've finished renovating our little sanctuary, it's gonna be worth it! :)
Now we are enjoying and happily living in this place we call HOME!
