Little House! House for Sale!

Yes, we've finally put our house up for sale (sad face goes here). The copy, penned by yours truly, goes a little something like this:

"A beautiful transitional Cape Cod in a highly-desirable neighborhood INSIDE the Beltline. Walking distance from parks, playgrounds, and one of the nation's top elementary schools. Easy access to I-440 and I-40, downtown Raleigh and NCSU, this charmer is quite possibly the best buy in town. Come in to see the many upgrades - new kitchen with semi-custom maple cabinets, quartz countertops, and stainless steel appliances (all convey), built-in bookshelves in the large office (which can be used as a 4th bedroom), smooth ceilings, hardwood floors throughout the house, gorgeous gas fireplace, all rooms newly painted. Energy-saving upgrades - all new energy efficient windows and a sliding door, sealed crawlspace, compact fluorescent lights throughout, efficient shower heads and toilets - will save you $$ on utility bills. Outside, a newly-landscaped front yard adds to this home's curb appeal while a large three-tiered deck in the fenced backyard provides plenty of room for entertaining."

If you don't feel like dropping everything, calling our realtor, and coming to see the house, you have a heart of stone! Or maybe you are wise enough to resist a nicely-written copy. Well, then here are the pictures. So here's the quick tour:
The living room - notice the painted brick fireplace and neutral, yet warm color-scheme.
The family room - built-in bookcases and vibrant cheerful colors. The closet was converted into a convenient home office.
Master bedroom - tropical and cool with a nice reading nook (I wish I had more time to read!)
Mark's room - we used the leftover paint from the master bedroom, then added some stripes on one of the walls; painted and organized the closet.

The bathrooms - painted and accessorized.

The kitchen - all new! That was a huge pain in the butt project!
