Fixer upper on a dreamy property

Thursday, July 21st, 2011

On the weekends the husband and I have been looking at properties, our next house is a fixer upper, LOL!

But seriously, this dilapidated mobile home sits on a piece of property I adore. we went back to see it a second time last week and I still think its my favorite of all the properties we have seen over the past six weeks or so. Someone has made an offer on it, we might make an offer on it too.

One of the things I love about the property is how natural it is with so many different plants. The pretty passion flower I posted earlier was growing up around that mobile home where there is a little gate that opens into a big area that must have once been a flower garden, (be still my heart). From the other side there is a nearly hidden little path that leads to the area I am referring to.
I love it so much.

There are several huge oak trees over a very shallow creek in a corner of the lot. There is a huge walnut tree, and a persimmon tree. I already showed you the artichoke plant. There is also two different apple trees, a lime tree, an orange tree, a lemon tree and a fig tree. Its heavenly to me although everything is completely over grown and covered with spider webs, ickkkk. This stalk is the blossom growing out of the blue agave in the front of the house.

We probably won’t be able to get this property but I can still love it.

I found this rock under one of the fruit trees, it appears to be a fish painted on it.

One of the other things I love is driving up to the property because you go through a tree lined path. Its so pretty. This is looking out to the street:

I can dream…

There is also a house on the property, which I do like but its the property itself and the shape of it that I love. I did post a few pics of the house in a previous post. one of the things I like about the house is the little court yard behind this big doors. The house is shaped in a U.

I do not like the kitchen or bathrooms. I do like the long hallway and tile floors.
