Checking all the boxes in Woodstock

Finding their dream house in Woodstock!

I worked with Abby and Wes when they sold their first home earlier this summer. We had negotiated two months of occupancy time so they could stay on in that house while they looked for their next one. They were super motivated and looked far and wide for their next dream house. We toured homes from Fairview all the way down to Oregon City. They kept a close eye on every home that came on the market.

When this one in the Woodstock neighborhood popped up we managed to be the first people to tour it. Their “new” home was built in the early 1900’s, but it’s had plenty of beautiful renovations and is pretty turn-key. Wes and Abby knew within minutes that this was “the one.” Their dream house has a gorgeous updated kitchen with stainless appliances and quartz countertops. There’s added convenience with a dedicated laundry room adjacent to the kitchen.

By next spring their garden dreams will be coming true in the nice big fenced yard. The house is large enough to allow everyone to work from home without driving each other nuts and there’s plenty of space to host out-of-town family for visits. Wes has grand plans for setting up a workshop space in the basement. Abby is thrilled to be living just a few blocks away from her dear friend. Coincidentally, I just helped that same friend buy a house in Woodstock. I think it was meant to be!

Most important of all, their toddler is absolutely tickled that Mom and Dad bought her a house with a staircase. Welcome home! I think you’re going make lots of happy memories in your new dream house!
