Relaxing on the Screened In Porch

With all that has been happening 
around our house this is the perfect spot 
for me to relax and unwind.  
Our little Summer dog is getting 
much better every day!  
We are trying hard to get some weight 
back on her and she is still a little fragile.  
The weather sure has been nice lately.  
Everything is green and lush 
and the trees are all leafing out.  
I haven't planted my flowers 
in my pots yet,
but I did buy a few plants 
for the screen porch.  
My pansy's had a great season 
and I hate to pull them out.  
But by next week they will have heat stroke.  
They did well in my front planter boxes, also. 
The cool and rainy weeks 
that we had were perfect for them.   
I loved driving up to the house 
and seeing the beautiful colors.  
We are past the freeze stage (I hope) 
so it's OK to leave the ferns outside at night.  
I put one in my rustic basket for now.  
They need to be re-potted 
so they have room to grow.  
 I love coming out here 
and having coffee in the morning.  
It's not a large screen porch, 
it's about 12 feet by 14 feet, at best.  
But it's large enough for sleepy puppies 
to take an afternoon nap...  
There are lots of comfy, cozy 
pillows on the outdoor sofa.  
This old grain sack is done up 
pillow case style.  
I just tucked in the ends.  
We have had a lot of showings 
these last few weeks.  
One day I had back to back to back 
showings for four hours straight...  
The dogs and I had to take refuge 
in my son's backyard.  
The feedback is always the same...  
LOVE the house!
The house is AMAZING!  
BEAUTIFUL Kitchen!  
On and on ...  But....  
There is always a but, right?
The reason they all give 
is directly behind this chair.  
When we first moved here there was nothing 
but land surrounding us on all sides.  
We are on the golf course facing two lovely ponds.  
You could look out and see green 
and trees everywhere.  
But,  (there is that but again)  
little by little they started building.
They told us when we bought the house 
that they were zoned to build light commercial.  
You know, a bank, some office buildings.  
But it has taken quite a different turn.  
They built apartments 
and we weren't happy about that...  
They built a shopping center with a Von Maur 
and a few other stores and that was OK.  
Then they started building closer 
and they put in a Stein Mart 
and they are working on this monstrosity 
called a Sheel's sporting goods store.  
The Stein Mart is what everyone objects to.  
Mr. Beaux went to every homeowners 
meeting and city council meetings 
to try and stop the building 
but the developers won every time.  
 Our house would have sold twenty times over 
if not for the Stein Mart sign.  
The thing is... 
that once you are inside 
the house it is quiet and peaceful.  
I don't really notice commercial stuff.  
We are now working with the homeowners 
association and the golf course to plant trees 
to cover the offensive sign.  
It is very frustrating though.  
It's like going out on lots of dates 
but never getting a second one.  
Your life is in a limbo of sorts. 
But, looking on the bright side... 
as I like to do...  
We don't have anywhere to go...  
we don't HAVE to move...  
So, I'll just stay here in my beautiful house 
until the right buyer comes along.  

Until Next Time,
Beaux R'eves,

That is an unfortunate situation. I'm surprised that the Planning Board did not take into consideration that there is a high end housing development and golf course near by. Big box stores usually bring a community down. There must be a sign ordinance in place. Our town has a strict code on signs, no back lighting and no facing the homes. I'd consult with a lawyer, you might just have a case to sue the town because they (the town) have caused a hardship for you in not being able to sell your home. It's another case of 'buyer beware', always investigate the zoning requirements. Hope you have a happy ending to this.......hugs....

janice15 said...

I love your screened in porch its lovely. Janice

Cranberry Morning said...

That is one spectacular porch! Just beautiful. I've never heard of a Stein Mart, nor have I seen their sign. Thanks for sharing your porch with us. It was a nice visit. :-)

Deserae said...

Your porch is beautiful....I would want to spend all my time out there :o) We have had some unfortunate things happen to bring the value of our home down too. You just never know what the future holds even if you think you have been diligent before buying your home. I used to wonder why on earth people would want to live in the middle of nowhere with nothing but acres and acres of forest around them....I know why now!!!! I if ever win the lottery that is exactly where I am buying a home! LOL

cathy @ said...

After reading your posts and seeing your gorgeous home, I kind of wondered why it wasn't selling. We had a lesser, but somewhat similar, situation with our previous home. Eventually a buyer who loved the house and didn't care about the lumber yard way behind the house came along. It had been a small town hardware store that became a lumber yard over time. Not quite a home depot, but almost. Drove my husband crazy. Your home is beyond beautiful. It will sell!!

michelle said...

I'm sorry this has happened. We built our home on 5 acres, with lots of farmland and wooded areas around. Now it's 13 years later, and as some of the farmers have passed away, their children have sold to developers. It's not commercial, but subdivisions. Now they've added a school to accommodate the population growth, and the traffic on our formerly quiet and peaceful road has increased ten-fold. I hope your situation will be helped with some screening and landscaping, but your home is beautiful and if you're meant to move on, the right buyer will love it just as it is. I would certainly love a porch like yours! Good luck!

S H Elliott said...

Oh gee, I wish you luck with the sale and planting of trees to help your home. So hard to be in limbo. Your home is beautiful. Sheila

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

So sorry you are having trouble selling. Hate when things get built after being told they wouldn't. Walmart got built at the end or our street a few years ago and the traffic on our road is awful. I think we will have a hard time selling if we ever do.

Maria Elena said...

What a beautiful space you have created. I am sorry to hear you are having trouble selling. It is impossible sometimes to stop all the growth happening around our homes.Enjoy your gorgeous porch! xxx Maria

Anonymous said...

Maybe you could pull the blinds down half way when you know it will be shown so potential buyers can absorb the room before the view. Even some potted large plants on the deck to screen the view might help. It appears you can walk to the shopping so I would suggest the realtor play up the convenience. Gorgeous porch and since its my first visit I'm off to check out the rest of your home. Best Wishes and good luck with a sale!

Liz@ HomeandGardeningWithLiz said...

I stopped by to check out what you've been up to. After reading this I immediately thought of how people in the city with a balcony or private patio area often put up a green wall to masque the view a bit and increase privacy. My mind went right to your adding large planters with smaller trees or shrubs that would help disguise the view a bit. You don't have to make it a solid wall but several planters in the right spots could help a lot. I hope things are going well.

Cindy, that is such a shame that the beautiful view was replaced with stores and signs. I hope the trees get planted. That sounds like a good solution. Like you, we enjoy our screened in porch. Some years ago, we enclosed it with French doors and window fitted with Phantom Screens. Now we can use the room year round, but yet make it a screened in porch anytime we desire. We don't have your golf course view, but we back to a greenbelt with lots of trees. Ww feel fortunate.

Joanie McLaughlin said...

Hope all is well. I miss your blog.

Pamela said...

Oh Cindy I hope that you have found a buyer since your last post. We just went thru the selling of our home and it is so nerve racking to say the least. This has been one of the most stressful things the Mr and I have been thru in our 20 years together but in the end we know it was best to sell and move on. We are patiently waiting on our new house to be completed and feeling displaced is one of the worse feelings.

Curtains in My Tree said...

Glad to hear Summer is getting better. I have had 2 cocker spaniels in my lifetime and they are very special dogs for sure

Your house will eventually sale i'm sure

Sarah said...

Cindy, I'm sorry for your frustration. It's a shame that the developers aren't held accountable. They should have planned with trees to screen the development from the neighborhood. I hope someone can see the value in the beauty within. Love your screen porch.

Unknown said...

Are you finished blogging? I was a follower for a while and sure have missed your decorating/design ideas. Would love to see you return the blogging world.

This way my acquaintance Wesley Virgin's adventure starts with this shocking and controversial video.

Wesley was in the military-and soon after leaving-he found hidden, "SELF MIND CONTROL" tactics that the CIA and others used to get anything they want.

These are the same secrets tons of famous people (especially those who "became famous out of nowhere") and the greatest business people used to become rich and successful.

You probably know how you only use 10% of your brain.

That's really because most of your brainpower is UNCONSCIOUS.

Perhaps that thought has even occurred INSIDE your own head... as it did in my good friend Wesley Virgin's head about seven years back, while driving a non-registered, trash bucket of a car with a suspended license and $3.20 in his pocket.

"I'm absolutely frustrated with going through life paycheck to paycheck! When will I finally make it?"

You took part in those conversations, ain't it right?

Your very own success story is going to start. All you have to do is in YOURSELF.

Great post. Articles that have meaningful and insightful comments are more enjoyable, at least to me. It’s interesting to read what other people thought and how it relates to them or their clients, as their perspective could possibly help you in the future.

There's always something great to watch with Netflix or Amazon Prime Video. Choose from popular movies and full seasons of hit TV shows. Enjoy a wide variety of choices, including Action & Adventure, Comedy, Kids & Family, Documentaries, and more. Plus, there are never any commercials.

While seeing generally, if you are looking for more content and entertainment, you can go for Hotstar. If you are always exploring something new to watch, you can go for Netflix. If you want to have the common ground between this two, you can opt for amazon prime.
