With a view of the western hills where the sun sets in gold and fire, on a windswept hill, stands a house of two storeys with louvered shutters and a fine front porch. It sits on .23 acres of lawn. On the west side of the house is a concrete driveway for basketball and hopscotch games. A spruce tree and several flower bushes grow in front of the house. And the porch is fair with dashing black beams and railings. Inside, the vaulted ceiling gives the space a feeling of airiness and delicacy. Down the hall are four bedrooms, all painted different colors. The master bedroom is a particularly vital shade of blue-green that will make each morning a delight to wake up to. The basement is a portal into the world of cinema. With a daring surround sound system, one can travel into the world of Alfred Hitchcock, Steven Spielberg, and Frank Capra. For the lovers of good movies, here, nestled into the couch with a blanket and a bowl of popcorn, you can live the lives of Michael Corleone, Luke Skywalker, Bonnie and Clyde and the rest. Here you can laugh and cry with the family as you enjoy the sweet magic of the movies. The backyard is spacious and the grass is very green and soft. There is a two-storey porch that hangs off the back of the house which you can pretend is a ship if you are a child at heart. Below the house is a finished three car garage in which you could build a schooner with which to chart the Columbia, Snake and Yakima. The multi-level nature of this house makes it perfect for those sprawling get-togethers where a barbeque is sending up smoke in the backyard while the children are playing pirates on the upper porch and shouting death or GLORY and shooting nerfs at their unfortunate parents who are trying to grill marinated chicken. Here, children can experience the vastness of the sky. They can watch the gentle dance of the clouds along the horizon and dream of the desert. In the kitchen there is room for several people to work side by side, chopping vegetables, sauteing onions, and adding a garnish of basil and dill to a fine slab of salmon. This house is within walking distance of childhood, and would be a terrific place to grow up.
