This little house served our daughter and her family well for many years, but alas, they outgrew it.
After a few failed attempts to buy another home and even consider adding on, they made the decision to move to Seattle.
With my son-in-law's business already in Seattle, it made perfect sense.
Once that decision was made, there was no stopping them!
My daughter rented an apartment and moved her family so that the house could be staged.
Here's their staged living room. It looks much larger and neutral, which is what buyers want to see.
Here's their living room after I did a makeover several years ago with World Market furniture.
You can read about it here.
The kitchen was remodeled several years ago too, combining three tiny rooms in to one.
There is no dining room, so opening up the space created an eat in kitchen.
The staged master bedroom looking much larger than it actually is.
This house has two bedrooms and one bath.
At 930 square feet, it packs a lot of punch, but not enough for our daughter's family, plus a new puppy and a cat!
The back of the house.
I re-landscaped both the front and back of the house about 5 years ago.
The cobblestone path was my solution to connect the house with the garage.
Above the garage is a loft that was used as their office. It also has a bedroom and bath so it could be used as an in-law unit.
Last year, I spruced up the backyard again with new outdoor furniture here. However, they have since inherited my teak table and chairs from our move, which will now find its way to their new home!
I think their backyard is my favorite part of this house. I'll always remember sitting on the steps and watching the granddaughters play.
And so it's time to say good-bye to this house and look ahead to a bright future in Seattle.
I'm in denial about them leaving and I know it's going to hit me hard when they drive away next Saturday, but I'm also very excited for them and can't wait to visit as often as I can.
Stay tuned for details about their new Seattle home.
