This, the first home showed to us, is right in the center of a village. It is quite old, although I don’t know whether it is 1920s old or 1820s old. It is what I would consider a townhome, with walls adjoining other homes on either side.
Now, I very seriously considered this charming home. This large village is beautiful and an active community. It is home, further out, to the area mall and giant supermarket. It is a busy place, but that is a bit of a drawback to this home, too. Right on a central street, even at the early French hour of 10 in the morning, it was kind of noisy. I would rather have something a little quieter. It isn’t as much family living, either, keeping Theo in mind. Additionally, although it had a fair amount of sunlight at that hour of the morning, it would obviously be a fleeting thing, and I was really looking for a light-flooded home for painting. But it was my backup choice (though Stoney was less sure). We were in perfect agreement on our first choice, though!
