[house hunting] Almost the one

Brand new house, close to a pond with swimming, boating and ice skating, just out of the 100 year FEMA flood zone, with in walking distance of bank, groceries and restaurants, not much traffic noise, a shared drive plowed by the neighbor, the right size, asking with in our budget, huge attic, his/hers walk-in in closets, 2nd floor laundry, a front hall closet AND a mudroom from the garage, 4 steps from the garage to the kitchen, eat in kitchen, forced air, gas, AC.

The Mayor is the neighbor. Not sure if this is a plus or a minus.

Septic, which is a bit of a minus.

And the biggest minus, it's in North Reading, 31 minute commute for G.

The pond might also cause noise issues with peepers or smell issues if the swamp is too swampy. No way we can really tell that, other than I guess the Mayor wouldn't live there if it smelled bad. Also might be mosquito issue, but there's fishing in the pond, so that likely keeps their numbers down.

I'm taking G to see it tomorrow.
