Houston, We Have a House

We recently went to St. Paul to look for houses. We didn't really expect to find a house but there are sooooo many houses for sale that after two solid days of looking, we decided to go with the third house we saw, pictured below. It met all our major requirements (character and charm, built between 1880 and 1950, backyard, in a diverse neighborhood, 3+ bedrooms, more than one bathroom). We made an offer, which was accepted (only a couple of nerve-wracking hours did we wait to hear). YIPPEE!!!



And, from across the street:


The house was built in 1889 and features lots of great original details, like this beautiful staircase.


The house is in the neighborhood of Dayton's Bluff, which on the east side of downtown St. Paul, and is 1/2 of a mile from Indian Mounds Park (photo below), which is along the Mississippi River. Dog walking will commence!

That is an awesome house. You have chosen an excellent neighborhood. Want to go to the caves? (Unfortunately I have no idea when I'll be there next. This is not okay, given that my grandchildren are there. So assume I'll get there some time this year.
