3 acre lot, generously sized house (5 bedroom, 2 of which are large) with a partly finished walk-out basement, and a nice 3-car garage. Lots of space for gardens and greenhouses. Lots of privacy. About 10 minutes farther out of the metro than I currently live, which isn't bad at all. It's a place I can see spending the next 20 years of my life.
It's on hilly, steep forested land (beautiful, just rough) with a couple of ravines, and a scary-steep driveway, which is presumably why the price was low enough to hit my price range (the house itself is in fantastic condition; the lot is just weird). We have ideas for driveway improvements over the next couple of years, so I'm not too concerned about it, especially since I'm in a 100% telecommute job. So if we get stormed in for a week at some point, no big deal. I do plan to keep emergency pantry goods on hand before winter sets in. And we'll put in a parking area at the foot of the driveway eventually too.
I hope to post some pictures eventually once it's ours (and assuming all the inspections etc work out). Closing would be at the end of this month.

This house has the foundation for a bunch of our dreams for the future. Gardening, fruit trees, home workshop space, art/craft creative space, comfy family living... so many things. So many dreams to make happen!
