It's kinda weird. We live in a townhouse in The Big City. I suppose square footage is relative depending on where you are. Our townhome...maybe 2200 sq. feet. Quite frankly, four bedrooms, three bathrooms with three levels is about all I think I can handle.
That being said...there is this one house. The Bunker House. Do you have one of these? Husband, Miss Peach and The Little Man all know that Mommy wants to live in The Bunker House. This house is literally right around the corner from our townhome. Whenever we are out and about, I always swing by just to sneak a peak at my house.
You are probably thinking "The Bunker House" is the name of whoever lives in the house. Not so. I don't know the folks living in my house. I do know it's an elderly couple.
I love houses that have a "bunker" feel. Do you know what I mean by this? I mean...a place that feels like a fortress from the outside. The Bunker House, from the outside is giant blocks of concrete. No windows, you can't see in at all. There is just one locked iron gate, and solid walls of concrete...bunker.
Here's the deal...once you get inside the concrete, the place is a city oasis. Inside the concrete is a yard/garden with floor to ceiling windows overlooking plush green. I love that! I love the privacy, the safety, and the freedom of space that only I get to enjoy.
Right now, if The Bunker House were to go on the market, there is no doubt in my mind that we would not be able to afford it. I know this...yet, I walk by this house many times a week and look at it. I think to myself..."Someday this house will go on the market, and I will buy it."
How in the world do I think this is going to happen? I am happy in my townhome. We are very comfortable here. It is the place I consider home. Truly, I feel grateful for this wonderful mini-bunker. That being said...tomorrow the kiddos and I will saddle up the stroller and go to the healthclub. On the way home, we will go a block out of our way to walk past The Bunker House. I will think to myself "Someday this house will go on the market, and I will buy it."
Do you have one of these???
