Hello, ut4ever. I've been pretty much missing in action since the Smart Home sweeps. Could not get excited at all about the UO. Although I love a good renovation, the jury is still out on this one for me. Agree, it's been pretty dead on the blogs - let's breath some life back this thing.
Glad you like it. Definitely not for me. IMO, the dark color on the walls sucks the light right out of the house.
I agree. No charm or character at all. It could have been so much more. The dark color on the walls sucks all the light out of the house.
Ash - you'll appreciate this. Back in the day, when I was about 6 or 7, my father decided that instead of watching the DC fireworks from Rosslyn/Arlington Cemetery, that we would go over to the Washington Monument. We ended up right across the street from where they were being done. Cinders and ash came raining down on us after each blast. I was scared to death and screamed the entire time.
That is my husband's area of expertise - well not in Asheville. He has dealt with all these issues over the span of his career as a real estate developer.
My fantasy laundry room would be a room with lots of windows, counter space for folding clothes and doing projects, upper and lower cabinets, a rod for hanging, a large sink, and a place for my sewing machine. So, unfortunately, the SH laundry isn't it; since it's about the size of a large closet.
I think Ashevillian lives in the immediate neighborhood of the SH. She is probably able to actually see what's going on with the project.
17 Russell Street in West Asheville.
Two bedrooms and two bathrooms upstairs. One bedroom and full bath on main floor. IMO, there's always too much furniture and decor in HGTV homes.
Eugenia, the SH is on a flag lot, thus the long driveway. I believe that there will be a house directly in front of the SH where you see the chain link fence and large tree when in the 360. It's possible that the driveway will be shared with that house. The parking pad could be a community guest parking spot. It's hard to know what exactly the driveway and lot configuration are without seeing a plat map for the development. I'm making a bit of an educated guess based on my husband being a land developer and I've seen lots of plat maps for subdivisions.
PS: A flag lot is one that has very narrow frontage at the street - maybe just wider than a driveway with some landscaping. It then opens up further back on the lot where there is enough room to build a structure.
