For when I’m ready to buy…***
Near the center of the town, on a tree-lined street.
Close (but not too close) to the freeway.
3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths. Master suite with walk-in closets (with recessed lighting).
Large bay windows in the living room.
Library with floor-to-ceiling bookshelves (a less extravagant version of what you see in Beauty & the Beast) and a red armchair.
Crown molding. Everywhere.
Kitchen with granite countertops and eat-in island.
Guest room/study with a daybed and a secretary desk.
Laundry space in the unit.
2-car garage. With storage room.
***The townhouse described above would NOT be my Dream Starter Home. The criteria for Dream Starter Home is much shorter: 1. Under $200,000. 2. Bigger than a closet. 3. In a non-sketchy neighborhood.
