DH and I were househunting out of state, and we saw some awesome places.
1. The Story Book subdivision. All the streets were named after famous Disney characters. The house we looked at was on Cinderella Dr. So, in keeping with that theme, the popcorn ceiling had glitter mixed in with it. It was sparkly.
2. We looked at a gorgeous house with a finished MIL suite in the basement, granite countertops, brand new hardwood floors and appliances. It was so nice. There was a lovely, big shade tree in the front yard, the lawn was a decent size, and it was on a very quiet street. The drawback was that it backed up to a cemetery. The backyard was fenced in with 4' high chain link fencing, and there was a headstone less than 25' from the fence. When I saw the backyard I shrieked, and DH later told me that he would never live next to a cemetery. His reasoning is hilarious. Mind you, he knows that zombies aren't real, but just in case the dead emerge from their graves, he doesn't want to be the first one eaten.
3. One house had such an interesting color scheme. The living room was robin's egg blue, the kitchen was pepto pink, the bathroom was orange. There was another kitchen, bigger than the living room, in the basement, and it was painted canary yellow. But my favorite room in that house was the "red room". It was a teeny tiny bedroom (like 8x10) with vaulted celings, blood red shag carpet, red and black patterned wall paper halfway up, a black chair rail, and the rest of the wall was white with red "accents". It looked like someone had seen the DIY shows where you do textured painting in a paint a slightly different shade than the base paint, and you use a sponge, or wrap a t-shirt around the roller. The top half of the walls in this room looked like they were covered in blood spatter. We saw this house right before the cemetery house.
4. the house where the master bathroom had a huge window as one wall of the shower. That window opened to the unfenced side yard.
5. another house had a really akward 1/2 bath. The room was basically "C-shaped" with the door opening up at the bottom right of the C. There was a sink and a mirror, and at first glance it looked like that was it. There was a long hallway that was not immediately noticeable, and at the end of that hallway, there was a toilet in the top of the "C"
I know I have more, let me think about it. That was our out of state search. We ended up buying our house here in HomeTown almost a year ago. Luckily I know a realtor here, and he was able to sift through the listings so we didn't see as much "interesting" stuff.
