I am happy to hand over today’s post to my very good friend Mirja aka delphini510 and her unusual take on property selling. Hope you will enjoy it.
Reading many estate agents’ formal and stilted descriptions of properties for sale, I was overtaken by a wicked impulse.
So here is my quirky approach to a sales “blurb”.
Is your dream of a house, a place
where in the morning you can step out;
hear birdsong whilst see them feed.
Surrounded by honeysuckle, clematis,
To sit on a bench tucked in between,
have colourful butterflies visit
along with dragonflies.
Filling your senses with peace
before the day begins.
If this sounds right for you, please do step in;
Coffee is brewing, you can share with me.
I will show you around,
let your feet connect with mighty oak,
sawn and smoothed.
Did you notice the windows
facing the rising sun?
Showing off flowers and shrubs.
You now face two wings,
one leading left, one right.
Four bedrooms to the left;
yes, they are big,
Did you notice the bathroom had jacuzzi too?
Back we traipse, turn to the right,
then right again. Quirky? I know, that’s what I like.
Through the sunny breakfast room to kitchen,
also lit by the sun
showing off the porcelain tiled floor.
By the way, did you notice the brownies?
I baked them myself.
Please help yourself
Back again and there is the lounge
with plenty of books and yes, T.V.
Please do roam around.
Next, two steps to the dining room
Looking out over a wooden deck,
steps leading to the lawn.
Now my favourite, the Garden Room
always so bright,
views of the garden wrapping itself around,
The house nestling in its heart.
Come with me to the secret garden
hidden on the side;
with berries of all kind.
The grape vine is enough for some wine
or just eating as they are.
A little patio with seating to just enjoy.
Price: Oh, better start saving pennies and pounds.
Meanwhile I have enjoyed having you around.
