Friday Five


1. How many houses/apartments have you lived in throughout your life?
Let me see - 14 by my 14th birthday, moved to college at 17, married at 19, 2 in the SF area, 5 in the LA area, 1 in Oregon, 2 in New Hampshire - that makes 24 - in 48 years.
2. Which was your favorite and why?
I think the one in France. 3 stories and a full basement with wine cellar, laundry room, coal furnace and storage. Formal living and dining rooms and large country kitchen, also a WC on the main floor. 3 bedrooms on the second floor with a sink in each room and a huge bath room with bidet. 2 more bedrooms on the third floor (attic conversion) 1/2 acre yard with lilac trees and a brick and cast-iron gate at the end of the circular drive. Downsides - no shower (tub only) and a pain to keep warm!
3. Do you find moving house more exciting or stressful? Why?
I hate it, hate it, hate it.
4. What's more important, location or price?
Neither. How the house is built, does it meet the needs of my family, and then can I afford it and how far will I have to commute?
5. What features does your dream house have (pool, spa bath, big yard, etc.)?
A large well-organized kitchen with gas range. A real fireplace or two. A well-prepared vegetable garden space. Fruit trees. A front porch wide enough for rocking chairs. A patio that can be easily accessed from the house, with a brick barbecue/outdoor oven. Large capacity water heater(s). A hot tub. A music room. and a library with built in bookshelves. Hey, a girl can dream - no?
