Home Sweet Home

With the arrival of Annabelle we knew we needed to find a three bedroom house or apartment for our family. I searched Craigs List and found a three bedroom brick cape cod in our budget in the West Park area of Cleveland. Although over 50 people contacted the landlord in the first three days, I talked to him over the phone and he decided to rent it to us without ever meeting us in person. Additionally, we hadn’t seen the house in person! Over Easter we drove out to take a look at the place and were thrilled with what we saw – the house is perfect for us and we fall in love with it a little more each day. Our landlord, Bo, and his wife, Anastasia, have been such a blessing to us – they have bent over backwards to help us get familiarized with the city and have given us such a nice place to live while we are here. Our first weekend here Bo spent hours driving us around the city and showing us most of the places I listed that we now love!

It has 3 ½ bedrooms with a nursery nook off the master bedroom, two bathrooms (one in the basement), kitchen, living room, downstairs family room, and an unfinished side of the basement for storage and laundry. It also has a small backyard and two car garage. Our landlord rennovated the kitchen prior to us moving in putting in a dishwasher and all new cabinetry. The cabinets are amazing with a built in spice rack and wine rack. Very functional for a fairly small space. We will post more photos in a few days but here are a few to appease the curiousity of those who have asked!
