We’ve been half thinking about selling up and moving down to Wicklow or as we call it downsizing…. our mortgage! We’ve looked around a bit in the last while, and then all of a sudden like a mirage, an apartment with a beautiful sea view and off the ground floor appeared on myhome.ie. I immediately handed the ipad to my wife and said “I’ve found the ONE”. She took a moment and scrolled through the photos. She looked back at me and said “Yes, i think you have” and continued to study the photos and the angles they exposed. We are very visual people, so the dimensions of a room or whether it has mains gas is irrelevant to us at this point! It could be powered by small mice on a threadmill in the basement and we might not even know or care!
It was evening time at this stage, so we decided we must see this place the next day or as soon as possible. It had incredible views over the sea off Wicklow town and the Golf course sitting on the cliff edge. Quite dramatic really. But no sooner had we made the decision to launch into the search, than we were disappointed to find the property removed from the myhome.ie website without even a goodbye kiss. I searched all around, and it was gone, our love had abandoned us. Just like a fleeting moment, where everything is perfect, we were left back in that moment wishing we could stay there forever. I can only assume someone else has snapped the apartment up. And i can’t say i blame them. I hope they love it as much as we would have, but if they don’t, i won’t be too upset because it will give us the chance to swoop in and start our love affair for real!
