House for Sale in Salem Connecticut

We are ready for the market.  As I took pictures of our house - I realized that I am really going to miss this place.

So - anyone out there looking for a great house we have one for you!!

We have a great family room with wood floors and wood blinds.
We have put up beautiful ceiling fans and love the recess lighting.
It has 6 windows just in the family room alone!  So much light.

We have a great kitchen that opens to the family room.  We have stainless steel appliances (among them a brand new dishwasher....grrrr) with maple cabinets.  It has a window that looks out into the backyard so I can keep an eye on the kids.

We have a large dining room that leads out onto our large patio.  The whole downstairs has wood floors and tile.
 We have a living room, but we use it as an office in our house.  It is a huge room and our office furniture fits perfectly in there.

Our second floor has 3 bedrooms and two bathrooms (the half bathroom and laundry are on the first floor).
Our master bedroom is perfect size with a great master bathroom.  We have a walk in closet, and attic space.  We put in a new ceiling fan and wood blinds.  Love this room.

Cainan's room is a great size and has a really nice closet and wood blinds.

My two girls share the other bedroom which is huge!  It has two large closets and three windows.  It is definitely a room built for two people or a REALLY lucky teenager.  :)

Our finished basement is our favorite room in the house.  We just laid the pergo floors and painted the walls.  It is cool in the summer and warm in the winter, and a perfect space for a playroom, a game room, or even another bedroom.  The mudroom and more storage is down there as well.  Love that mud room.

Our house is 2400 SF with a 600 SF basement. We have 3 bedrooms, 2 1/2 bathrooms.  An amazing farmers porch and 20x20 back patio.  We have 2 acres of cleared land, and 7 acres of land that we leave to your imagination.  It is NOT protected land - you can mow over the whole 9 acres if you want, which I love.  It is yours to do with as you please.  Our property is part of a neighborhood, but is also very private.  We are on a cul-de-sac.  Our neighborhood is full of families and kids and is just such a great place to live.  9 ACRES!!  Totally amazing.  You can always add more houses - you can't make more land.  Land is a HUGE commodity.

I should have been a realtor!  Ha.  I took pictures of the outside of the house a few days ago, so if you miss those, just go back a few post!

Salem is a beautiful place to live.  It is a small town where everyone cares about everyone else.  We are 15 minutes to EVERYTHING.  It is in the perfect spot.  Where schools are top notch.  The people are amazing.  We are so sad we are leaving.  We are close to New York City, Boston, Hartford.  We are just as close to the ocean as we are the mountains.  You can't find a better place to live.
