Hi! We're a blended family of four looking to purchase our first (and our forever!) home in Western Mass! Mom Lauren is a valley native having grown up in Amherst with great-great-grandparents who immigrated from Florence, Italy to Florence, MA in the 1800's! Dad Skylin and two kiddos are excited to live in a welcoming community immersed in nature. Dog Rockstar and cat pumpkin are seeking two floors so they don't fight! Other dreams include land to homestead, 3 or more bedrooms, a workshop or space to build one, away from busy roads and/or private and set back from one. We're excited to live in areas with a strong sense of family and community (and have been engaged in local movements in the area). We love unique homes, areas to garden and our Pisces 4 year old would love some water. Though these are all dreams and we'd love to discuss with anyone who wants to pass their place on to a loving family!
We're open to most any town within 45 minutes of Northampton. Towns we LOVE (though there are so many more to explore) include Leverett, Shutesbury, Ashfield, Cummington, Goshen, Williamsburg, Turners, Greenfield, Holyoke, Etc! As you can see, it's really about the magic and peace we are hoping to find at the home than the exact home itself. We will know it when we find it - could it be yours that we are looking for?
Thank you for considering us as we make our way back home. Email LLABURKE@gmail.com with any ideas! Our budget is $400k ish with some wiggle room. We are grateful to you!
