Midlife Crisis Queen is selling her home in Fort Collins, Colorado. Author Laura Lee Carter blogs at Midlife Crisis Queen and has written about the major life change of selling your home, moving and retirement entitled Do I have the courage to live my dream?
Laura Lee Carter’s happy apple green home for sale must be the cutest on the block. The exterior curb appeal makes me thirsty for more, so we are taking a bit of a home tour inside today.
I happened upon her other article about selling her move-in ready home and moving out of the city entitled The Big Move: Grasping versus Letting Go “for a cleaner, quieter, calmer existence.” Whoosh, let that wash over you for a moment. Doesn’t that sound like the most wonderful plan?
Laura’s heart is very attached to this house and for good reason. She states since she grew up moving a lot, her Fort Collins, Colorado house is the first place that felt like home to her.
This is typically called buyers or sellers remorse. For Laura, I think it goes a little deeper and that is one thing I like about her home story. But, Laura and her husband are planning to build their dream home with mountain views in three directions. Good-bye metro living, hello peace and tranquility.
I can see this happy green house selling pretty quick. Listing detail updates include newer windows, carpeting, vinyl, paint, roof…. and new range and refrigerator. I love the angled sink and windows. A popular theme in kitchens lately is open shelving. There is a perfect spot to add open shelving above the dishwasher for new home owners.
This is such a fun eat-in kitchen area overlooking the family room. The possibilities are absolutely endless.
Home office. Thank you Midlife Crisis Queen for having a comfortable chair to sit in while working.
The property details state Ash and Aspen trees with a fenced yard, patio, and sprinkler system. Other amenities are sky lights and marble floors in kitchen and master bath. To see more of this home visit Zillow.
The Home Story:
Laura, the Midlife Crisis Queen shared with me that she and her husband fell in love with rural southern Colorado. They were able to buy three acres there this year. Laura says now comes the hard part, building their dream solar home down south almost off the grid.
This sounds like a retirement dream come true to me.
Here is Midlife Crisis Queen, Laura Lee Carter looking out on her future beautiful views. Now this is what I call fantastic views. They will have views of mountains in three directions. Laura put it perfectly comparing these views to looking at the house across the street. The couples new adventures seem destined for happiness.
In addition to her blog Midlife Crisis Queen, Laura Lee Carter can be found on How to Believe in Love Again, and has written several books including Midlife Magic: Becoming the Person You Are Inside, How to Believe in Love Again, Find Your Reason To Be Here that you can check out on her blog.
