We've signed a lease this morning so we are committed for the next twelve months. We are moving to Daybreak in South Jordan. We found a great place to live across the street from a park and two blocks from the elementary school. We went to the school and got the registration paperwork to fill out to register the kids. I can't believe this is happening so fast. Here are some photos of the place we are renting. Be prepared, there are several.....
Kitchen, lots of space and we love the island!
(We need to buy a refrigerator and have it delivered before we get there.)
Stairs leading to upstairs.
View of the park from our front porch.
Front entry way and master bedroom off to the side.
Side yard and path leading to the garage. The red bark is going to be replaced with sod and a tree. (One of the down sides to this house is that the garage is not attached but something we can live with for now.)
Bathroom in the basement. (There is another one of these upstairs, I spared you pictures of both.)
Bonus Room/Family Room/TV room in basement (Joseph would call this the I can throw a ball in the house room!)
One of the bedrooms. There are 4 more just like it. (No that does not count the Master Bedroom, and yes there really are 6 bedrooms, and yes I know that's crazy!)
Loft area at the top of the stairs. We plan to make this into a reading/homework area for the kids.
Laundry Room (Just off a hallway from the kitchen)
Another hallway off the kitchen area with a half bath, coat closet and the door to the garage and side yard.
Counter in the Master Bath. The walk in closet is off to the left.
More Master Bath. The door shown is a linen closet.
Front Living Room and fireplace.
In total there are 6 bedrooms and 3 1/2 bathrooms and a total of 3500 square feet. We know this is an absolutely massive house that we will never begin to fill. We considered a smaller home at slightly less rent a month but the perks of this one out weighed the cost for us. Its close to the school, it has a park across the street, and the HOA comes included in the rent. The HOA on this one included both cable and internet so by the time we added that in the rent really wasn't that much difference on the two places. And those of you who are not familiar with this community let me tell what else the HOA covers. 2-3 pools, a lake complete with canoes, kayaks, and sail boats free to residents, snow removal (very important to us!), several parks, sand volleyball courts, basketball courts, tennis courts, community center, fitness center, a police substation, and plans to build another community pool right next to the elementary school and tons of kids. We love the place already!
So now that you know we have lots of room, we would love visitors! We have plenty of room, so come on by. I will send out our new contact info as soon as I set everything up over email. So if you want it and you aren't sure I have your email address be sure to include it in the comments section.
