After searching our dream apartment for almost a year my husband and I finally did buy one, yay! :) We spend hundreds of hours browsing the Internet and visited about 20-30 houses and apartments. We mostly concentrated on second-hand apartments. New apartments in Poland tend to be located in closed (encircled by a fence) housing estates, which I really don't like. As I was raised in an old tenement house I also wanted the apartment to be high, I feel better in such spaces.
The apartment I found is located in Sopot, Poland, the town I lived in all my life (except from the last 3 years), 15 minues walk from the sea and two minutes from the forest. The tenement house was built at the beginning of the 20th century, it has brick walls. It's high (3,05 m.), big and sunny - mostly south-west. It still has original doors and wooden floors to uncover. It has to be completely renovated and I love it - everthing from scratch can be made just the way I want it to be :-)
The funny thing is that the previous owner left us most of her stuff inside. There's a lot of garbage and unnecessary things but some of this turned out useful. Tidying up the apartment I feel a little bit like on a flee market. Look below what I found and what I decided to leave :)
