Corey & Sueann
Corey & Sueann have a few moves under their belts in the recent past! We have had the good fortune of working with them and getting to know them (they are lovely and fun – a great combo!) Their most recent move is from a new condo in Glebe Court to a stately, remodelled family home in the Glebe. Here they share some thoughts on home ownership with us.
What is your idea of the perfect house?
One with a balance of location and character. We love being in a neighbourhood where we can easily walk to parks, restaurants, shops and the grocery store. Easy access to downtown is important too. We like a house with character, one that feels inviting and cozy. It doesn’t have to be perfect, as long it has the right elements we can work with to make it feel like a home, a place where we can envision ourselves making a lot of happy memories. We get both living in the Glebe!
What house chore do you regard as the lowest depth of misery?
We are moving from a condo to a house and looking forward to having outdoor space to enjoy. But we don’t really enjoy mowing the lawn or shoveling snow. If anyone would like volunteer their services, we’d gladly except! (Just kidding… kinda).
If you could change one thing about your house, what would it be?
We love our new house, but we purchased it knowing the kitchen needs some TLC. It’s small, dated and the layout isn’t functional. Our hope/plan is to open up the kitchen to the dining room for an open concept feel and change some elements to give it more of a modern and fresh look.
What do you most value in your friends’ homes?
We appreciate that our friends homes are all different and they all have different taste. Regardless of the house they live in, we love that we always feel welcomed in their homes and that we have built great memories over the years.
When and where are you happiest in your house?
We are happiest on a weekend morning, sitting in our living room with our animals (two dogs and two cats – only one of whom likes to be photographed apparently), listening to music on our record player and sipping a cup of coffee/tea.
