Houses in Denmark have to be better than apartments in Denmark—so, I’m thinking about buying a house!
I’m beyond tired of listening to other people’s televisions and kids. I’m over having to sign up a few days in advance for a laundry time. I’m sick of having to schedule appointments and errands around the probability of finding a parking space when I get back, then not being able to find one anyway. And I cannot take another second of living in a fishbowl!
I’ve looked at a couple of big apartments that weren’t right for a variety of reasons. Apartments that size are rare as hen’s teeth in a city where most apartments are two to three rooms, and get smaller the closer you get to the city centre.
But moving to the suburbs seems like giving up. I mean, isn’t that what people do when they decide to settle down and raise a family? I’ve been having a hard time getting onboard with that, but I’ve found a little enclave of houses in Denmark that are every bit as close to the heart of the city as where I’m living now. The houses are big and gorgeous, and I went to see one today!
Wanna see? Scroll down :)
Can you believe this place is in the city? It even has a greenhouse, a dressing room, a balcony off of the bedroom, room for a clawfoot bathtub, and a garage!
It was built in 1910 and it’s quite palatial as houses in Denmark go… it’s even got Versace tile in the bathrooms, but if you’ve been reading my blog for awhile, you probably know that my heart belongs to romantically shabby places and secondhand furniture, so this would take some getting used to.
It’s gorgeous. Unfortunately, it isn’t for me.
