I went walking up my favorite hill today with the boys in tow. It was a beautiful morning for a walk.
I detoured through this lovely neighborhood towards the top of the hill.
Here's an example of one of the houses. It's not THE prettiest of them, this one is vacant, that's why I took a picture of this particular one. It's quite lovely don't you think? I was thinking to myself, Oh how I wish I could move up into one of these homes. They're HUGE!
However, I do see one problem with these homes. Do you see it too?
Look how close they are to each other.
Look at this one, I wouldn't want to walk out into my miniscule backyard, or have my blinds open to the backyard. The neighbors behind me could see everything I was doing. (not that I'm doing anything strange, I'm just sayin')
Now, my house is just as close to my neighbors too. Fortunately though, we're all single story, so it's not like we're getting into each others business.
Now this one, I could handle. They're right on the corner lot. Which means they probably have a much bigger back yard, more in keeping with the size of the house, and they're enjoying some privacy as well.
Same house from across the street. They're up on this hill too, so they have a great view of the horizon line. It's probably nice at night. They can see some of Vegas' lights, but far enough away not to be obscene.
So, what's my point here? Not sure I have one, just noting things I want to keep in mind for that day in the future when I get to hunt for my dreamhouse.
