From the first time we saw our lot, we always had to imagine what our final view would actually look like. There were so many trees, it was hard to even see anything beyond them. We knew the mountain range was out there and occasionally we’d catch a glimpse of Lion’s Head through the trees in Staunton State Park, but until you actually see it, you just don’t know what to expect.
Of course we did our due diligence before we purchased the land. We were lucky enough to see the view from a number of the neighboring houses, so we had a pretty good idea of what we’d see after the trees were removed. Now that nearly 200 of those trees have been cut down and hauled away to make room for our new home, we can finally see the view that we’ve imagined for so long. Neither of us could stop smiling as we looked out over the remaining trees to take in the beautiful scene that would be the backdrop for our home and future memories together.
