I recently shared that my husband and I are searching for a new home, and one of the neighborhoods we've looked at is Village At Central College. We love the Westerville community and the house we toured would be the perfect fit for our family of five.
It's still crazy to me that we are a family of FIVE!! As amazing as that is, it means that we need more space in our home...like right now!! Our wishlist includes 4-5 bedrooms, 2-3 bathrooms, a playroom, an office for my husband and I, a nice sized kitchen with an island, top floor laundry, and storage. I know it may sound like a lot but we currently live in a three bedroom 1.5 bathroom house and it's taught us that we need to be really picky with our next house. I would also love a formal dining room but that's a want not a need.
The Village At Central College fills a lot of our wishlist. I felt like we could live comfortably in this house. Between the mudroom and large walk in pantry to the upstairs loft and top floor laundry we would be set. The house we toured had 4 bedrooms plus an upstairs bonus room that was similar to a family room with the formal living room downstairs. Where it was located, my kids could make a mess the night before and when I wake up I wouldn't even have to walk by it until after I had my coffee. Hide that mess away!! The bonus room also had a closet which would be perfect for toy storage.
The master bedroom had a huge closet, a gorgeous bathroom with a tub and shower and plenty of storage. The other three bedrooms were great in terms of size and closet space. My kids were with us on this tour and wanted us to purchase this house as is. They LOVED the decor. Mary Cook Associates did an amazing job on the train room and the super pink room that my six year old is obsessed with. Not kidding they ask us everyday when we are buying this house. :-)
Let's talk about light!! M/I does an amazing job at making sure there is a lot of natural light coming into the home. Something our current house is lacking.
Aside from the beautiful house the community is great, Hoover is really close by, as well as a few other parks, and I hear that there are plans to develop land nearby for a park. We also really love exploring Westerville and all of the local businesses.
