We live in a 1950s split-level home. The first time we were in our house, we knew it had so much potential, even though it needed a lot of work and looked like it was haunted. Together we remodeled much of the home, including the kitchen. We love to cook and entertain our friends and family.
Our town is a suburb outside of New York City. There is a train station within walking distance to our house as well as parks, schools, and a cute downtown with restaurants and shopping. The community within our town is great. There is always something to do on the weekends from Halloween parades, farmers markets, rubber duck races, or a trolley sing-a-long with Santa Claus.
The best part of our town is that it is close enough for our families to visit weekly. We even have some family members who live a few blocks away who we get to spend time with often.
