I don’t know whether to cry or laugh. Today we finally saw the St. James house that looked so promising from the outside with nice property. And then we saw the inside…the upper floors were a warren of tiny rooms, there was no basement, and a previous owner removed a bathroom on the third floor - whaaaat? Never mind that the house once belonged to (but wasn’t built by) Stanford White, it wasn’t even close to workable living space for us without some serious remodeling. The only things we’ve seen that are acceptable as is are beyond our current budget.
