Progress on Penny Lane Investment
Hey all! Talked Jeff into trying out an auction site. Lol! Got a pretty good deal on 100 Penny Ln. in Lake Forest. It had a little water damage and thankfully NO TERMITES! Brought in a contractor to help.
It's a 2500 sq. ft. Colonial 2 story with 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths. 9 foot ceilings downstairs with a soaring two level foyer. Formal dining plus a large vaulted breakfast area connected to a beautiful living area with crown molding and a wood burning fireplace. The best feature is that it backs up to the Golf Course!
First thing we had to do was replace the HVAC's. Yes, there are two! One on each floor! Then we replaced the roof.
Decided to remove the popcorn ceilings downstairs as well. What a mess! To save some money Jeff and I removed wall paper in dining room, bathrooms, a bedroom and laundry room.
We also pulled out some shelving that a former owner painted black!
Stay tuned for more updates as we progress. If you know anyone who might be interested, depending on what stage we are in, they could pick some of the elements that go into the updating.
Any other suggestions for updating bathrooms etc. we would love your ideas.
Thanks, Debbie Elliott
