As a self professed homebody it should have been clear to me what my dream job and purpose in life was. Long before HGTV and its wide array of home improvement programs, This Old House was my favorite program on PBS. So settling into an urban community of older homes built in the 1940’s, such as Four Corners, was a no-brainer and one of the best decisions that I ever made. More than 15 years later I still appreciate the quaintness of the mix of Cape Cods, Tudors, Colonials and Bungalows and the beauty of the surrounding gardens. Living in an older home doesn’t necessarily mean forgoing modern conveniences, as many of the community’s homes have been updated or have the potential for transformation through design creativity.
The type of community you live in is a personal choice and your preferences may evolve over time. My first home was in a more suburban new townhouse community. Although I loved the more carefree nature of townhouse living, the commute from the outer lying suburbs became unbearable. The key to happiness and contentment is being happy where you are. Regardless of the physical location of your home, you can create the home interior or exterior environment that best appeals to your sensitivities.
