Strange Beauty in downtown Omaha

In Uncategorized on May 31, 2011 at 3:56 pm

Formerly used as the Mechanical Plant for the Burlington Train Station & recently renovated to become a single family home – this is my new favorite house on the market in Omaha. Nestled between Little Italy and downtown Omaha – it has spectacularly interesting indoor and outdoor spaces – it would make such an amazing space for an artist or small business owner (there is a huge workshop/loft attached that may be zoned for commercial use). $475,000



Globetrotting…from my office.

It comes as a surprise to people when I start rattling off info. about various houses and neighborhoods in town at length…they must not know that OCD is both a curse and a gift. It’s a gift when I allow my obsessions to posses me entirely – burning every detail of the homes I love into my brain. It’s almost a sickness…and I’m taking this freak show on the road (not literally) – and expanding my love of real estate across the globe (if only I could really sell in other locations!).

Lake Oswego, Oregon – this has been a favorite place of mine to research real estate for a really long time. The designs are mostly mid-century modern with a lot of lake-cabin influence. This particular home at 18024 Skyland Cir ($1,595,000) has everything I love architecturally, plus it is an ecco-friendly design and it is right on the lake. I can’t help but picture myself soaking my toes on the edge of the boat dock with a lucky bucket in hand.

I became interested in researching homes in Salt Lake City, Utah after a former co-worker of mine talked up the climate and scenery there. It turns out that their property values are pretty comparable to ours  – you can get a really beautiful home for a very affordable price – thrilling for me to learn!

1651 S. Mohawk E ($589,900) has the marvelously modern-contemporary feel that those Uthahns seem to really embrace in their architecture.

I love the Carolina’s. I’ve always said if I had to live in a warmer climate – I’d choose to go there – specifically, the Chapel Hill/Durham area, where it is rich in culture, beauty and nature. The homes there are a huge mix of  country cottages, stately mansions, little shacks and contemporary condos.

This modern little beauty at 4607 Chicopee Trl in Durham (599,00) looks to be nestled deep in the woods and surrounded by flowers and trees – love that idea!

I would love to travel the world and just look at homes. Most of the places in Europe that I would want to spend time in seem to be have more loft or apartment spaces than over-sized (American-style) homes – and that’s fine with me. I love quaint comfort.

This apartment in Ciutat Vella, Barcelona is one I’d love to see more of…selling for EUR449995…that is a lot in American dollars, I’m sure.

I have a little bit of a crush on Brussels…so, I troll Craigslist looking at apartments there all the time.

EUR750 in Rue Godecharle (Brussels) gets you a cute, very small flat that looks to be entirely outfitted by Ikea ❤
