Riverton House

Our view in one direction, our sidewalk, and a SLOW, CHILDREN AT PLAY sign.
The front of our house...(that's the current owners car).
Our 2 car garage, full of stuff, as you can see the current owners are already starting to pack.
This is what you see when you walk in the front door.  To the left is the formal living room, the middle are the stairs up to 3 bedrooms 2 bathrooms, to the left is three stairs down into the "mud room."
The formal living room and just beyond to the right is the kitchen.  Love the vaulted ceilings and how the two rooms connect.
Our 3 girls looking out our front window in the living room.
Another shot of the living room.
Hooray for a BIG PANTRY!
Good sized dining room.  That railing on the right looks over the family room.
Gary, Clark the inspector, Brad, and Bruce talking things over in our kitchen.
Bruce checking out our granite counter tops.
Room for 3 stools at our island in the kitchen.
Half of the family room and you can see up into the dining room.
Another view of the family room and the doorway on the right goes to the mud room.
One side of the backyard, patio, garden lining that side fence.
Other side of the backyard, nice fence, that bay window is the dining room.
One side yard.
Other side yard.

Stairs down to basement.

Downstairs closet and bedroom.

Another view of downstairs bedroom.
Unfinished basement.
Utilities.  High efficiency furnace with PVC pipe.  Water softener included.
Plumbing for downstairs bathroom.  4 inch floor drain in bottom left corner of picture.  We would move the wall over about 2 feet that you see on the right there.
Area at the bottom of the stairs that we will probably turn into big storage closet.
Under the stairs storage that will also be in storage closet.

Mud room, that door in the middle is the door down to the basement.  I'm standing in the hallway that goes down to the bathroom, laundry room, and bedroom.

BIG laundry room.
Main floor bedroom that we are going to make into a play room for now.
Main floor full bathroom.

Girl's bedroom and closet upstairs.  I love that it's purple...we'll probably keep it that way for now.

This is the corner that we'll put their bunk beds in.
Big linen closet in the upstairs hall.
Boy bedroom already decorated all army and helicopter.  It's like they knew we were coming.
Boy bedroom closet.
Walk in closet, it goes all the way around behind the door too.
Master bedroom.  We'll put our bed where their wardrobe is.

Master bathroom, separate shower and bath tub.

Master bathroom vanity.  I would rather have only one sink and more counter space so I really like this vanity.

Saratoga Springs Foreclosure

Kate on the side of the house by the garage door that goes out onto the RV Pad.
I'm standing in what would be our formal living room, just past Brad's head is the fixture that would go over our dining room table.  Where Kate is standing is the top of the stairs to the basement and the doorway to the 3 bedrooms upstairs.  The door on the very right is a coat closet and the door on the VERY right that you can't see is the front door.
BIG KITCHEN!  You can put 5 barstools at that island.  gas stove, area on the right for a little computer desk or something.  Open doorway is the laundry room and through that a door to the garage.  Fridge goes in big hole to the left.
Family room off the kitchen.  perfect for a sectional and little TV, then you don't have to have a TV in the main front room.  Lots of light, lots of space.
Amazing backyard.  Hi Gary!
Side yard with RV Pad.  Since we don't have an RV or boat or anything I was thinking we could do an above ground box garden.  Also, window wells are covered and the dirt area on the right is pretty for flowers or more garden.
Nice front storm door and big enough front porch for a porch swing.
3 upstairs bedrooms and one bath.  Master to the left, bedroom 2 in the middle, bathroom is the next door and bedroom 3 is far right.
Standing outside the door of room 3 looking down the "hall."
Room 3, ceiling fan.
Upstairs bathroom
Bedroom 2
Master Bedroom, 3 windows

4th bedroom with no window right at the bottom of the stairs to the right.
Big downstairs bathroom
Another view of downstairs bathroom, built in cabinet.  crack in shower wall.
5th bedroom, weird checkerboard floor.  Maybe giant chess board right?
Wet bar
One end of large room in basement.  Benches that open for storage.
Other end of basement room, damaged carpet, mold, SMALL hole in wall on left (you can't see it).  Projector screen on wall.  Small exercise room off the right, technically 6th room.
Kate in exercise room, no window.  mat on floor, mirror, and pull up bar.
Benches open up.  Hi Kate!
More bench pics
