Okay, now Ellen and I are on a quest to find a rental that has an in-law unit in the back so we can live like one happy communal family. I find these great houses, but the rent is out the roof. Will we make it happen? Who knows. Is it fun looking at mansions? Completely!
4,800 square feet + separate in-law unit on the side
$5400/month rent main house + $1100/month rent in-law unit
The family room. The in-law unit is on the back of that wall:
There is an office to the left of the entertainment center in the family room. The office has a full bathroom to the right. Behind another door is the in-law unit. The property manager told us the refrigerator, in the in-law unit, is currently in front of the other bathroom door. I thought it would be fun to move the fridge so Ellen and David could have a two-bedroom area with two bathrooms:
On the back of the family room is the kitchen and breakfast nook (where I am standing to take the photo):
On the right of the kitchen is the formal dining room/living room (grand staircase is behind me as I take the picture). The hallway door leads to three bedrooms and two bathrooms:
The grand foyer:
Downstairs there is this recreation room, a laundry room, and a small room where the two-story laundry chute ends up, and a small bathroom:
Right side of the recreation room. Oh, how I loved the idea of turning the little nook, on the right, into a sewing area:
The backyard from the master bedroom (sorry for the screen):
The house definitely had its pluses and minuses, but it will be the perfect house to rearrange and furnish while I fall asleep at night.
