Coming soon!

Our new house... we're on the left, but the right is coming up for sale soon and we're bound and determined to get it and use both sides.

It's a duplex from 1846 - built as part of the Vernon Mills worker's housing: 42 units rented to the cotton mill workers. At the time, it sat two miles outside city limits, so it is part of its own little grid. The city grew up around it, and it remains intact as part of the neighborhood of Hampden. It's about 3 miles from Alexis's job, and five blocks from a sweet little shopping district.

It has a lawn (and part of it gets full-day sun, hooray!), from the patio in the back you can see the other stone houses. It's like the most charming little hidden village, but within a few minutes of everything!
