Closing Day with the keys to our new house!
We bought our dream house! The search began almost a year ago for a home that had character, was on a private lot, and had lots of garage space. This house met these criteria and so much more! It was love at first sight- we knew this was our new house the moment we walked in.
The previous owners purchased this property with a 1930s summer cottage on it over 35 years ago. The cottage was re purposed into a gorgeous great room with a vaulted wood beam ceiling, 1/2 bathroom, and a kitchenette. We have plans to turn the kitchenette into a home brewery! The house was added on to the cottage using reclaimed building materials- the bricks and hardwood floors are over 100 yrs old. The enclosed porch and huge deck overlook the Missouri River. There is a garage and a carport and oh yeah another garage... plenty of room for all of our cars and a workshop for Matt :) If that was not enough character for us, there is a tram that provides access down to the river and an old cottage near the river.
We could not be more excited to make this our home!
Matt and Kelly
