Back deck view

Back deck view, a photo by aghrivaine on Flickr.

We went and looked at a house this weekend. It is an incredible opportunity - a rambling 1920's craftsman ranch-house with four bedrooms, an amazing kitchen, a guest-house, barn, pool, and a master bedroom suite that is nearly as large as our current house. And this is the view from the back deck.

It is in Tujunga, which is an inconvenient location to say the least. It also presents wildfire hazard, and as recent years have proved, this is not negligible.

Still, it's the first place we've found that has everything we're looking for, plus a lot of potential for more, and in a price-range we can basically afford. And the notion of sitting on this deck with coffee and a book in the morning ...well, that appeals to me quite a bit.

Oh, man, house hunting can be wonderful and terrible, sometimes all at once. Good luck with the search!

BAM mountains. Such a view is always an immediate point to the good in my book. Distant mountains are somehow tied up in the spirit of adventure, in my gut, and having them closer means living near Adventures.
But as to the real-life "adventure" of being in wildfire territories... there's no way to predict if it will affect you and the missus, and that sucks. It's a lot of uncertainty to weigh against the many positives.
