April 25, 2010Won’t You Be My Neighbor
By Sablemable aka Jan
Yippee-skippee! Here’s a time-capsule home in my neighborhood!!!!! A limestone dandy at 400 Chippewa in Benton Harbor, Michigan.
Here’s the living room and oh, my! Is that the original front door?
The other end of the living room. Love the fireplace and the arched entrances!
Oh, Lord, help me! Not only are the cabs original but it looks like the counter top is, too!
Now I know I’m going to faint! An aqua wall oven!
A sun room in all its paneled glory!
I just know some of you are becoming lightheaded over this pink bathroom!
The basement. Another beautiful fireplace.
There are three bedrooms, two bathrooms and 2600 square feet of living space, loaded with closets for the price of $138,000.00!
Excuse me while I ring up my real estate agent!
PS: I have the strong belief that this home was built by the late, great Joe Cheevers, whose trademark was closets, lots and lots of closets. He, along with Joe Sorce, were exceptional builders and built the majority of the brick ranches in our neighborhood.
