However, we do occasionally drift over to the 'what-if' of country living. We both realize that you pay a premium for living close to town, and those old, walkable, convenient neighborhoods just so happen to be the ones that we love... and are out of our price range.
Then I stumble upon this dream home, and I start to wonder about moving out of town. Seriously. I love everything about this house... except that it is located in Monroe.
But then I look at this house again, and think I could suck it up for those floors and windows and fireplaces... And the unpictured cottage with separate living quarters on the property. Oh, and the fact that it is priced only slightly above our current mortgage.
