Our Raised Ranch Home

It’s been a full year since we bought our house so it’s long past time to share some pictures.

We weren’t really planning on becoming home owners for a few more years, but when our landlord decided to sell the house we were renting, we were faced with a tough decision: Move to another rental for a few years before buying a home (and moving again) or scrape together a down payment a buy a house. Personally, I was sick of moving so we decided it was time to buy.

Here’s what we purchased:
This style of home is called a raised ranch. It’s very common in Western NY but definitely not anyone’s first choice in a home. I have to admit, it has grown on me since we’ve moved in.

These pictures are from the real-estate listing so please excuse the poor quality.

The main living room is right at the top of the steps.

The living room flows into the dining room making one large entertaining space.

And finally there is the downstairs den complete with that pesky faux fireplace and a walkout patio.

After I do some cleaning, I’ll post pictures of what our house looks like a whole year later. More to come!
