Our Forever Home
Karen and I are both from the Midwest (Minnesota and Wisconsin). My parents and sister had moved to Florida. Eventually my mom’s health had gotten poor, so Karen and I decided to move there to help take care of my mom. Although Florida was nice, it wasn’t the Midwest. While there, my sister (who had been living with my mom) passed away unexpectantly and my mom’s health continued to decline.
My mom was born in Lumberton, North Carolina and met my dad there while he was serving in the Army at Fort Bragg, 62 years ago. I asked my parents if they would like to return to Lumberton since my mom still had brothers living there that she had not seen for many years. They were excited at the idea, and we both sold our homes and headed to Lumberton.
Mom was very happy to get to spend time with her family, even with the constant in and outs at hospitals. The happiness of the move slowly faded for all of us as the hurricanes and rising poverty of the area was taking its toll on us. We decided that we really needed to get back to the Midwest! We put our houses back up for sale. We knew we didn’t want the Minnesota cold or the Florida hot, so Karen and I went on a search and discovered Grand Villa Community, in Missouri. We drove all the way there to meet with CS and put down payments on 2 homes that day! We fell in love with the area and Grand Villa right away.
We still had to sell our houses, but we decided for Karen to go ahead and move down and get employment. We loaded up a Uhaul full of our stuff and Karen drove it down, all by herself, and got our home all set up all while securing a good job almost immediately.
About a month had passed and mom and dad were able to sell their house. At the time, however, mom was hospitalized so dad had to move in with me until mom was able to get out of the hospital. Karen flew back to help me get mom and dad’s house emptied. Then Karen drove it down to Missouri, all by herself again! Dad and I stayed in my empty house in Lumberton with one bed and a loveseat until we could move mom. It wasn’t safe to move her, and wasn’t looking like that was going to change, so dad hired a medical transport company to safely move mom. She was so tired of being in hospitals for the past 2 years and was begging to go home and home for her was the Midwest.
Mom and dad put all their trust in us, as we went and picked out their home for them without them ever having seen it. We took our cars with the medical transport and we are finally HOME! We could not be happier with Missouri and Grand Villa. Mom is doing well and walking around some. Our house still hasn’t sold yet, but we are home.

This home is loaded with incredible features starting with the newly installed gas fireplace. Who wouldn’t want to “cozy” up to a crackling, glowing fire with a warm drink and a favorite book? New carpet, in a neutral tone, fills the living room and runs through the home adding to its warm ambience. All your “comfy” furniture will fit just fine in this open space.
This one-of-a-kind kitchen features a custom made, rustic range hood whose rich tarnished colors blend perfectly with the warm tones in the new countertops. Subway tile settles under the hood and above the stove for easy cleanup after cooking. The soft white walls and painted cabinets in this home, will chase away the winter blues until the sun’s warmth of spring returns, filling you with ardor. The kitchen area remains cozy even though it is open with an ample seating area. Not only does it have room for a table and chairs, but the extended countertop creates a bar for extra seating. The primitive shelving has country written all over allowing you a fun way to feature and display your favorite dishes, keepsakes, or what nots. The plank flooring and faux wood walls give warmth, texture, and a true Country Farmhouse feel to this room. The large framed mirror adds light and keeps the room open.

Simmering soup for supper while you make a beautiful set of earrings for a gift? You’re right there to keep an eye on both. The wall dividing the kitchen area from your craft room is open at the top of the vaulted ceiling allowing air to flow through and keeps you from feeling closed in. This room can be an office, workout room, family room, even a guest bedroom with a hide-a-bed, or anything you can dream up.
