New House in Montrose

We abandoned the idea of moving to Santa Fe after a few days there looking at houses. Our money wouldn't buy much there and we we were not ready to live in a tiny, poorly taken care of house in a generic subdivision or a generic house in a brand new subdivision 25 minutes outside of Santa Fe. In short, Santa Fe housing prices are like Aspen, Jackson and Telluride. We knew that but thought that prices may have come down enough for us to sneak into town. No such luck.
We went over to Montrose, Colorado a week ago and after a few days of looking we got lucky and stumbled upon this old house in the old part of town. Yesterday, we finalized the buy/sell agreement and now we just have to wait til the first of December.
Sorry about the size of some of these picture. You can click on them and see if they enlarge. The smaller ones are from the realtor's website offering the house for sale, and the larger ones were taken by our real estate agent.
It's kind of amazing to think that only 15 years ago, we were living in a tipi and building a log cabin.
