Won't You Be My Neighbor

Would you like to be my neighbor?  Would you like to live in one of the friendliest towns anywhere?  Do you ever wish that you could step back in to time?  I can only imagine life in the late 1800's on a street such as mine.  The street that my shabby old  house as well as this one beautiful blue cottage is on is the same street that Reece Witherspoon drove back in to her home town in the movie Sweet Home Alabama.  Lined with beautiful mansions and the sweetest Victorian cottages anyone could ever dream about,  Eufaula is one of the prettiest towns in the south.  Or so I think.   There are some lovely homes for sale right now in Eufaula.  This sweet Victorian cottage, two doors down from mine happens to be one.  It was built in 1872 and has 3494 grand sq ft just waiting for a lover of old homes.  And get this, it is listed for $210,000.  It is also listed on the National Register of Historic Places.  

 Close your eyes and imagine the slow steady rhythm of creaking rocking chairs  and the cool  taste of sweet tea shared with friends and neighbors on this really large wrap around front porch?  Just look at all the gingerbread?   Can't you see geraniums in the pots and ferns hanging and springtime flowers all over this porch.  What speaks better of springtime than life on the porch! Now imagine the azaleas showing off their blooms against the blue.  And there are lots of beautiful azaleas and roses all around the house! Even a white picket fenced in the back yard.  And who doesn't dream about a house with a white picket fence?  This house is the making of every good southern girl's dream.  It Heavenly, I tell you!   I will be delighted to share with you all the details of this amazing house or if you just can't wait because you already know I have helped you find your dream home, give Conner Lawrence Real Estate's listing agent Camilla Shamblin a call.  She was a dear to show me the house today.  Oh and I forgot to tell you, there is a She Shed! And who wouldn't just love a She shed?  You would, right?!!  Come back to see!
