I'm planning to shift gears in the near future. Instead of continuing to toil at a job I dislike (but am good at and make money from) I want to do other things -- activities I enjoy. Artistic projects, motorcycle trips and all kinds of fun.
To facilitate this, I plan to close my professional office and buy a place I can use as my headquarters. I've developed a list of qualities I'm looking for in such a place. At first I considered a commercial/industrial building but their price includes a premium simply for business zoning rights. Since I won't be overtly engaging in business activity, I can avoid that price-bump by buying a residential property and use it for my particular purpose and not as a home. (I plan to continue living at my current residence.)
As a Boy Scout (be prepared!), I've already starting looking even though I'm a year or two away from making this transition. I've travelled all over Long Island in search of the right spot.
I just spotted one place that's wonderful. It costs a little bit more than I want to spend but I could afford it. If it's still on the market next year, I might snap it up.
What do you think of this space? It's on the water.
What a beautiful space to work in! Those views are amazing!ReplyDelete

It is just amazing! Hopefully you'll be able to snap it up! xxxReplyDelete
Wow! When can I come for a visit? ; PReplyDelete
One of the uses I plan for the space is to offer it to my friends when they come visit. Since I won't be living there, they can have the house all to themselves!Delete
I am in awe: it's a dream come true !!! I say yes :) You deserve it.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Lorena. I feel the same way. :)Delete
Outstanding. They are not making any more waterfront property. You have to pay for the limited supply. I love the house and the view.ReplyDelete
I wish you well walking away from the practice. I have been trying to do that but it is not as easy as it sounds
For me, it will be easy (psychologically). I never enjoyed practicing law and there are many other things I want to spend time doing.Delete
OMG, that's amazing! That lofted space takes my breath away!ReplyDelete
It's yours when you want to visit!Delete
It looks absolutely gorgeous!!! I bet you'll style it beautifully and classically too!!!! I hope you get it!ReplyDelete
It's a shame that you're really good at something but don't really enjoy doing it! Oh but that we could all love our jobs!
This is beautiful!! I'm happy to hear you are making a shift, sometimes that is needed! I'm sending good thoughts your way!ReplyDelete
It's a dream house for certain. Big beautiful and open for creative pursuits.ReplyDelete
Exactly. I need a home for my creative energy.Delete
Omg. I'm drooling. This is fabulous. What a beautiful place to get your creative juices flowing!! Yes. If it's still available next year and you can swing it, then my answer to you is yes :)ReplyDelete
Ally! First of all, congrats on the change, even if it is still in planning mode, that's huge! Second, that place is fantastic! Such a beautiful open space, perfect for you! Also, perfect lighting for outfit photos :)ReplyDelete
Acquiring large, bright space for outfit photos is one of my highest priorities!Delete
Wow...this truly is a dream place! Go for it if you can afford it, it's so beautiful! May I visit? Ahahah. Love, ValeReplyDelete
