Looked at a home in Lakeside today, nice property on a small knoll or hill in the forest, had plenty of trees but they weren't quite as magnificent as those on my current property... meh, must have been a couple hundred trees on the 2/3-acre parcel, and some of 'em were decent-sized Ponderosa Pines. Plenty of room for the kittehs to roam, no worries, but the home itself had several issues: septic tank cracked with tree roots growing in it, leveling issue with the original trailer, tiny bedroom, cracked & fugly tile in the main bathroom, small kitchen with limited storage space, no pantry, etc., etc. The addition was a different story: high vaulted ceiling, primo stone fireplace, plenty of room for the 8' pool table in the center (no shorty cues required, unless ya wanted to make a statement), enough windows to allow light & a good breeze into the home, blah, blah, blah. This home doesn't lie far from the Mogollon Rim, so a cool breeze blows across the hill and through the house if ya have the windows open. The parcel itself is tucked away in the woods, yet it lies in a central location near Walmart, Lowe's, the Home Depot, etc. I like the location and the quiet neighborhood, plus the proximity to White Mountain Boulevard and all those businesses I never checked (for employment) in Lakeside & Pinetop. Downside is that several issues exist with the home, and these negative factors may outweigh all others... fixing stuff ain't cheap, and I'm handy with tools too, but I have to watch the money this time around, even more closely than I did when I first arrived here. Might still load the rental truck and hammer down for the Northwest, haven't decided yet. Anyway, here are pics of the property I looked at today, the home is a medium green color that blends into the forest: THAT FOURTH SHOT SHOWS A SIGN POSTED NEAR THE ENTRANCE, WHERE THE DIRT DRIVEWAY ANGLES UP THE HILL TOWARD THE HOME, LOL... LAST SHOT SHOWS A NEIGHBOR'S HOME TUCKED AWAY IN THE WOODS ACROSS THE STREET AND LOWER DOWN THE RIDGE.
