North to Alaska

House tours. I can’t get enough of them.

When I can’t get there, a virtual tour works just as well.

I was reading the definition of virtual—–very close to being something without actually being it.

That makes a virtual tour……almost real.

When I learned someone I love dearly was moving to Alaska, and after thinking how far away it was and how much I would miss her,  my thinking went to  “I wonder what  the real estate is like there?”

Isn’t she a beautiful little missy or Mrs. now?


SO ………..House touring in Alaska we go.

Virtually of course.

Because I want to see the current trends, I’m looking under new construction

Isn’t this a cute little place, well not so little………3382 square feet…on an acre of land.

It has 4 bedrooms and 3 baths…

Let the tour begin.






I don’t like a lot of conversation when I’m touring. I can look better when it’s quiet.

and the basement

A beautiful home that could be in my neighborhood or a lot of neighborhoods in the lower 48 ………..until you see the views. Not my neighborhood at all.

Maybe one day I will get to visit my sweet girl and see her and the views in reality instead of virtual.  And a virtual hug is no where close to being a real hug.


Inside the House

Is this the one? In the words of my beloved mother….time will tell.


Aside from all the red tape of selling a house and then buying a house, there are anxious

thoughts of emotionally distancing myself from the house I called home for a long time and bonding

with another house that will potentially be the next home sweet home.

And then there are the what ifs………

what if I attached myself to a house and then watch it slip away because

of issues with the timing of selling my house and someone else buying the one I had my heart set on.

In the end, I have to let these thoughts go and have the confidence that what is suppose to happen

……..will happen. And that gives me peace.



Want to see a little of the inside? Of course you do?

The door is open, come on it.





The foyer….Living room on the left. the dining room is on the right.  The door ahead leads to the back covered porch.



Taking pictures at noon…..not recommended. Especially on a beautiful, sunny fall day.

Not a cloud in the sky.




The window and lighting in the foyer over the front door. Picture taken from the second story hallway.



Dining room… loving the detail of the ceiling.




The living room, which will be used as a study/ office. It is a good size room. I think there will be room for seating in there as well.



Looking up to the second story from the foyer.


Below, view from kitchen to dining room.


I prefer white or lighter cabinets, but these are nice. I don’t think it is a deal breaker.

The appliances would be changed to stainless.









The breakfast area above. . The hallway leads to a main floor bedroom and bath.

Although it’s not the master, it will be great for a guest suite.




View of the breakfast  area, kitchen bar area and the hallway leading to the guest suite.


The great room below.




The fireplace in the great room. This room is connected to the breakfast area and kitchen. You can see part of the porch through the door and windows.


The guest bedroom.. and bath.






Ladies and gentlemen , that concludes the downstairs tour of the potentially, maybe new home.

Watch for the upstairs tour coming soon.
