Default We bought another house

Finally, after almost 5 months of torture we've managed to buy another house. This time in Bükkszék, only about 8kms from where are now in Sirok and 23 kms from Eger. It's only a small village of around 700 inhabitants but it has a newly renovated spa. The house purchase was relatively straight forward and simple. Getting a mortgage however, was a different kettle of fish

The house is nothing special, a typical Russian era cube with some additions. Lots of outbuildings, summer kitchen, cellar and about 1400sqm of land. Hundreds of strawberry plants, a huge walnut tree, very large apple tree, various smaller trees including plum, apple and peach and numerous red current bushes. The idea is for us to create a large vegetable patch on one side and plant some more palinka trees on the other We managed to get about 1/3 knocked off the asking price and only paid 4.25m huf We've had the electrician round and said that the wiring is in good condition and modern, we just need to increase the amperage. The builder's going round tomorrow and then we just need to get the plumber in as we want to get rid of the gas boiler and move the bathroom. Hopefully we can move in this month and do the rest of the work around us once we're living there

We're trying to sell our Sirok house inorder to repay the mortgage and then buy yet another house. The Sirok house has been a guesthouse for 6 months each year and we'd like to continue with another guest house, hopefully also in Bükkszék. We're selling the house because we're fed up of moving twice a year between our 2 previous houses and also we don't want stairs any more. My wife had a bad fall earlier in the year and we've decided she's safer on the flat

Hopefully this will be our last move and we can look forward to living out our days here.

Congrats! Hope it will be your perfect home.

Does this mean you will have to change your forum name though?

Sorry, I was thinking of some posts I read in a parallel universe:
"MONSTERGOLD wrote:

I live in Eger.Eger is a small historical town.It's famos for wine and grapes...."

Reply:
"I've always wondered why anyone would call a town "Mouse"."

Thanks for the clarification fid,

I didn't know a mouse was an Eger.
That's another word learnt.

Strictly speaking it's an "egér"

You are not a man trapped inside the body of a mouse then?

Or an 'egg' which is the sign for Eger in Hungarian Sign Language!
