I have lived in this small studio space, the first home I've ever owned, for over a year now. In the summer it feels like a tree house and in the winter I have clear view of the ex-con that lives in the apartment across the road. He usually keeps his blinds drawn. There is a coffee shop below where the baristas know my order and the neighbourhood is just the right amount of removed from the city centre.
This is my current home - I leave it often to travel but am always happy to return.
