City Mouse

>> Monday, July 13, 2009

Did any of you ever read City Mouse-Country Mouse as a kid (or to your own kids)? Well my grandma used to read it to me ALL the was one of my favorite children's books. I feel like I can still relate to that story of the city mouse visiting his cousin in the country and the dichotomy of living in a bustling city versus the relaxed quaint countryside.

I grew up in smaller towns, went to college in a small town, and dreamed of living in a city "when I grew up." I had a brief stint in NYC (TOO much city for me) and have happily settled in San Francisco. But I constantly go back and forth on where I want to end up: the city or the country? Last weekend was definitely a city-love weekend, the kind where I picture myself here forever. This was mostly because we went to an AWESOME open house in Potrero Hill where we looked at a modern and architctural dream home (ahem, WAY out of our price range, obviously) that made me swoon! Here are a few pics I snapped, but the property website has a full gallery of eye check it out here (seriously the website has way better pictures than mine).

The home office overlooking the AMAZING indoor/outdoor living space.

The gorgeously landscaped garden filled with succulents and eco-friendly plants.

The master bedroom with a downtown SF view, private deck, HUGE dressing room, built-in modern bed and amazing master bathroom.

Outdoor living space which opens up into the...

indoor living room space to make one hugely awesome area for entertaining rain or shine!

The upper deck off of the kitchen/dining area.

Seeing a house like that in a hip neighborhood made me fantasize about city-living for good. But it only takes one cute bungalow on a tree-lined street in Sacramento for a fraction of the cost to make me dream about backyards and BBQ's in the burbs. Oh which mouse am I supposed to be? The city mouse? Or the country mouse?
