We made the decision to move to a more urban location. Right now, even taking the garbage out involves driving. We’d like to live somewhere that we can walk places.
With that in mind, we decided to start looking for places close to downtown Kirkland. We found a place pretty quickly (we thought it might take months to find the right place), and now we are in the process of purchasing this condo a two block walk from downtown.
The key part of this is the view of Lake Washington and Seattle
We’ve decided to do some serious remodelling before we move in, as the interior is very dated, and its going to take us a while to clear out all the stuff we’ve accumulated over time. We’re moving from 4000 sqft, a garage and a barn to 1800 sqft with no large storage space.
