When we starting looking to buy our first home a few years ago, we weren’t sure what house features were important to us. As we toured homes, we often found ourselves in the backyards. As a result, we ended up with a house that needs a lot of work inside but has a great lot. The best thing about our lot is our backyard enters into a wonderful city park.
There are occasional shenanigans that go on the park that I could do without, but mostly the park gives us a sense of privacy. I love looking out the window while I’m working. And if we want to have some spontaneous outdoor fun, we just have to step outside.
