Not just any house. It’s our former home.
In the interim, it’s had major renovations, with remodeled kitchen & bathrooms, new interior doors, new lights, ceiling fans, new flooring and paint throughout, and upgraded electrical and plumbing.
We heard through the neighborhood gossip network that the family that bought it from us underestimated the logistics involved in living in such a beautiful spot. With both parents working and two children now dealing with school and other activities, the commute to town–about 26 miles–quickly got to be too much.
I can certainly appreciate that. We were lucky to almost always have been able to arrange our lives to avoid peak traffic hours, and with just one car, the commute offered a daily opportunity for long, open-ended conversations and lots of NPR listening. But we didn’t have the challenges that kids introduce to the equation.
In any case, it’s a great house in a primo location in Kaaawa.
