Love it. My kitchen has a very similar wash as the dining room.

Rentals can work. When I was moving ten years ago I found the almost perfect space for me - one level, high ceilings, lots of light, private woodland setting - but it was a rental. I did what we all do when house hunting. I listed the pluses and minuses and did what I could to mitigate the minuses. In my case, I was able to negotiate a long term lease. I've made improvements but their cost spread over 10-15 years and added to my rent is still cheaper than anything comparable.
