Our real estate Brokers Tour this week was delicious as usual – both because of cool “eye-candy” including PINK TREES, as well as tasty treats like spiral wrapped sandwiches. Yummy.
This week's focus was on fellow Keller Williams Realty real estate brokers but it also ended up having a focus on some of the delightful old homes in the area. I think the newest home I saw was a gorgeous and HUGE home that was built in 1969. With 3,494 square feet and a 1/2 acre lot, this home would be perfect for a variety of uses, including two of my faves – large families or a multi-generational family that might include three – four generations – from elderly seniors on down to sweet grandkids. I've done that in a 2400 square foot home and we did fine for a few months. With a home like this, we would have done even better as it could provide more of the privacy that is so often rare in multigenerational families.
I also enjoyed visiting a beautifully remodeled old home that was originally built in 1920. You'd never know it though, thanks to the wonderful, well-planned and designed upgrades throughout the home. And you should see the cool “hidey-holes” in the two smaller bedrooms. My grandkids would have so much fun with those – when they weren't out playing in the playhouse/fort that goes with this lovely old, yet new house.
The last house of the day was another of the grand old homes in the area, also fully remodeled. They did a grand job and it looks delightful.
I have to admit, I'm always partial to things that would be practical for caregivers or grandparents. Let me tell you, this cute Craftsman home has a bedroom my grandkids would LOVE! It's got a loft built inside the bedroom itself. Talk about being grand for creative play – from forts to dollhouses to sleeping upstairs while older grandkids are reading quietly downstairs. It would be a definite hit for the visiting grandkids, for sure!
And yes! There were plenty of tasty treats along the way. I loved the easy to prepare ideas that could come in just as handy for a family party as for an open house. At one home, there were three platters. One with carrots, celery, broccli and dips, one with salami and various cheeses, and one with a variety of cookies. At another home, I enjoyed those tasty spiral sandwiches made with tortillas.
All of these are easy recipes and are grand for busy caregivers, grandparents or REALTORS® who need to throw together a family meal or a broker's tour lunch quickly and easily, don't you think? 🙂
