While I was in San Jose recently visiting family we were able to see one piece of property that he is looking at. Let me just tell you, this house is AWESOME. It's old and beat-up but it's strong and classic and can you imagine if the walls could talk? When I grow up I want to own a house just like this. I am in love with this house. Every little thing about it. The details are amazing and I just want to bring it back to it's former self.
As we walked through the house each room brought a different treasure. Complete with the stained glass windows. So much of the old house was still there. Beat up but surviving.
If I was independently wealthy, and my uncle didn't want to buy it , I would snatch this place up. I would take all the years necessary to bring it back to it's former glory. I think it's beautiful all beaten up, imagine what it would look like with a spit-shine and a some paint. I mean for heaven's sake it has a claw tub!
She's a beautiful old girl and I hope she finds someone to love her real soon. Someone that can see beyond the dust and muck to what she once was and what she can be again.
