We looked at several two bedroom apartments. We really liked a first floor apartment that was facing the pond, except the sun was reflecting off the water directly into my eyes. It was so bad I was getting a headache. No way. We decided we did not want to be facing the pond.
Another apartment was upstairs. It had a nice view, but it was facing north. That meant no sun. We did not want to be facing north.
We looked at one facing west. It was near the highway. The view was good but we could hear the traffic. I lived next to the expressway in Indiana and we live next to a not quite as busy highway here. We are tired of traffic.
We looked at a small two bedroom apartment with an attached garage. The apartment was too small and the view was looking directly into the windows of the building across from it.
I was afraid we were running out of options. There is one final building under construction with the expected occupancy date of March 1st. We went upstairs and looked at the one facing the parking lot. The view was good. We talked about the balcony with the property manager. The balconies are all the same size, and we figure two people could sit there but three would be a crowd and four or more would be impossible. We decided to look at the first floor units. The least expensive one faced the parking lot. Cars would be parked a mere 6 feet from the patio. We decided to look at the one facing the field.
>>>This is it!!!<<<
The patio, the views, all perfect! The floor plan is the same as the one we liked facing the pond.
We told the manager we wanted that one, so she prepared the papers for us. We went home to fill them out, print supporting documents, write an earnest money check, and then brought them in. We should hear in a couple days if we are accepted. To be continued....
....We are accepted!
It's still under construction
My view!!! Looking southeast....Sunrises and NO POWER LINES
And we have side windows in the bedrooms! I can see the sunsets, too!!!! This is looking southwest.
No power lines
No power lines!!!
Sunrises and sunsets!
That's going to be some dark sky at night and you know what that means...Stars!!!!
There might be an issue with dust from the farmland but the farmers aren't in the fields all the time and there is some distance between the fields and the complex.
