Bittersweet

I have a personal post for you all today. It is mostly all good news, but there is a little bit of sad too.  After talking about moving up to New England for years now, my parents have finally listed their house for sale in New York.  
Very exciting, but at the same time there is something sad about the house you grew up in selling and not ever being able to go back.  I should be fully over this with how many moves I have made personally, but this house has always been there for me to return to throughout them all. Its literally been a home base. 

So in an effort to help them get it sold I am posting it here.
Located in the Hudson Valley, about 50 minutes north of the city in Highland Mills, NY.
(If you have ever shopped the Woodbury Commons Outlet Mall, it is minutes away from that.)

 They have been here since they got married in 1972, raised three kids, put on numerous additions and landscaped the heck out of the place...
 Open floor plan, pumpkin pine floors, and built-ins/ storage galore via my Dad's amazing skills...






 There are tons of patios, gazebos, even a pool to lounge by...


$319,900
See the complete listing if you are interested or know someone that might be here.
Buy it so I can get their butts up this way faster!

Aww, I'm sorry you feel sad. Change can be good. I hope they find a buyer quickly.

What a beautiful home! I would be sad to leave too but this next phase will be exciting. My parents sold my childhood home about 5 years ago and I still miss it.

Someone will snatch this up so quickly! What a lovely house you grew up in!

I am so not looking forward to the day that my parents have to put their house on the market- it will be totally bittersweet for sure.

What a beautiful house, I'm sure it will get sold in no time!

Beautiful home! Hopefully you will have a bidding war. I know I would be one of them :)

Bittersweet, for sure. But, it will all be worth it to have your parents nearby. It is a lovely home that you can tell had a lot of love and care put into it!

The house is wonderful and I hope it sells fast for you! I am working with my parents in Atlanta to move up this way as well. Mine are much older and I just want them closer and to enjoy this season of their lives!

Their house is so charming - they'll have no trouble selling the place. And I know that must seem strange. My parents have been in the same house since 73 and I can't even imagine someone else living there!

It is a beautiful house and gardens! I'd love to be able to buy this home. Your parents have even furnished it to compliment the home perfectly. I can't imagine it will last on the market at all!
