House TalkN is a fun lookiloo at houses, houses, houses. It will answer pressing questions like, "When folks build a McMansion on a small lot, what are they compensating for?" or "Was the real estate agent drunk when they staged this house?" or "Why don't the Smiths' ever leave their drapes open when I am on a harmless walk-by?"

A Real Estate Sampler...

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!
**Full disclosure: I know think that my neighborhood is the best neighborhood in the country.


This house just happens to be a few blocks from my own.
This house just happens to sit on Clark Park, the best park in town. (Think of kiddos playing in sandbox, neighborhood parties, campouts in the park, 4th of July extravaganza and a Halloween parade!)
This house just happens to be one block from The Champaign Country Club.
This house just happens to be three blocks from a neighborhood school.
This house just happens to BE FOR SALE!









Won't you be my neighbor?

    1. The windows and built-ins totally define this house. The solid doors, the glass knobs, the vintage window hardware, - I swooned!
      Thanks, Alison.

    1. Oh, Pinky. That is exactly how this house felt! It is a great house in a great neighborhood. It could be left alone for a shabby chic feel or updated for a more modern feel.
      Thanks for popping by, Pinky!
