She's not too much to look at, especially on the inside, but the exterior is one of the best features. The yard is downright manicured. It's flat and manageable. And, the best part... it has a sprinkler system! We didn't think the sprinkler system would work because of the fact that the inspector didn't test it in March, and the timing of the whole estate situation. Had it been winterized last winter? Had it even been brought out of winter mode this past summer? Would it work? Why yes, it does work! Push a few buttons and the whole lawn will be watered. Easy. Now can we get a similar solution for mowing??!
There is one really nice big tree on the property, but that's it. After spending so much every year on tree trimming and removal, it's nice to only have one to manage. The neighbors have some that are reasonably close to our property, so we can enjoy some shade that we don't have to keep trimmed.
The siding and roof are in great shape, so they won't be worries for us for a long time to come. Since we had to do the entire exterior at the last house, these are big selling points here.
So, there you have it, the outside story of the white cape cod house that we now call home. We'll go inside again soon.
