Won’t You Be My Neighbor?

By Sablemable aka Jan

Today’s “open house” is at 1441 Spruce Drive in Kalamazoo, Michigan.  The house, either a tri-level or quad level, was built in 1959 and according to the listing, this was the first house built on this road.

Here’s the 4-1-1:  4 bedrooms, 3 full baths, 2 half baths, 3 car garage, sauna, greenhouse with a generator, enclosed in-ground swimming pool, underground sprinkler system, 2 hidden safes, main floor laundry room, 2 fireplaces, lots of closets and an indoor BBQ grill in the kitchen.  Square footage is 4,858 and it’s listed at $350,000.00.  The Miller Connection Realty, Inc is the broker and can be contacted at (269) 384-0084.  The photos shown are courtesy of www.realtor.com.

    Whoo! whee! That house is amazing! First off, the outside is grand and stunning – and the rest of the house…there isn’t a single room that disappoints. My god, that kitchen…seriously gorgeous. The flagstone work.. the built-in bar.. that kapow! orange bathroom..the rec room built-ins…those huge windows.

    So wonderful. I hope that someone buys it and keeps it just like it is. I can’t imagine changing a thing.

    Wow!!!!!! What an awesome house Sable! I love all of it – the stone, the kitchen, the rec room! Do you think there is any way to move this house down to AZ? 🙂

    Saraaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!!! No problem, I’ll have Bob hitch it up to the truck and haul it down, LOL!

    Kelly! My only wish is that there would have been more photos, but you’re correct-nothing disappoints here!

    Looks like the original front doors on the house, double doors at that!

    Sable – I think you might have found my dream house, wow! I only wish they had more pictures, especailly of the greenhouse. I am in love with the private patio. And, wow, what a price, too, for a house of that size. That house would probably be half a mil around these parts!
