Every house tells a story of the people who live in it.
This one tells the story of one of my dearest friends and her family.
And their dream to live on a lake.
And their dream came true.
I remember on a very hot August weekend coming here for the first time, four years ago. We unpacked many boxes and talked till late into the night.
They have made changes and made the house and space work better for their family.
Like this amazing office space that looks out onto the lake. Dreamy.
Or the room where the boys bring all of their friends in and watch the game on TV.
But the story of this home is about to change. Really big changes are coming really quickly.
You see, my dear friend, my Betty’s husband, serves in the US Army and he will be promoted to a new post.
And although they really weren’t planning on this big move now, it is where their journey is taking them.
They are leaving this dream to go live another one – for a little while.
They are going back to the place they lived before this one.
Not a bad move at all.
A place that still lives strong in their hearts.
Instead of tubing on the lake, they will be surfing in the ocean.
The kitchen will be smaller, but there will still always be room at the table for loved ones.
And although I am heartbroken for her to no longer be a drive away, I am so happy for them that they are going to a place they love so much.
And besides, I will just have to visit them now won’t I?
And, while they are gone, this beautiful home is available for a long term rental.
So, if you or anyone you know is interested in renting a home in Middlesex County, MA – drop me an email!
