Exciting news: We're shopping for a new house! Imagine me doing jazz hands, because that's how I feel. At this point we're just looking online to gather information about neighborhoods and prices, but it's a start. We're seeing freshly renovated cookie-cutter dream homes, charming vintage bungalows, derelict foreclosures, and everything in between.
But 245 Cherokee Road is a one of a kind gem. It's a large Tudor, built in 1928. It boasts elaborate woodwork and trim, arched doorways, hardwood floors, a beautiful screened porch, and the most unique paint colors I've ever seen. It's certainly not for everyone, and I couldn't live with these colors every day, but it has a magical quality to it. These colors shouldn't work. But somehow, they do. It reminds me of a Venetian carnival, a Moroccan kasbah, fairy tales, and Mrs. Frizzle from The Magic Schoolbus.
