Won’t You Be My Neighbor? Midland, Michigan

By Sablemable aka Jan

A great big thank you to Retro Ruth (our heroine) for finding today’s WYBMN home!

At 2609 Manor Drive, this brick and sided one and one-half (1-1/2) story home has 4 bedrooms (2 down, 2 up) and 2 full bathrooms (1 down, 1 up), 2,094 square feet of living space, a full basement, a 2-car detached garage and city water and sewer, all for the sweet price of $150,000.00!   The house was built in 1954 (great year!) and is listed with Ayre/Rhinehart Realtors (989-631-7000).  Photos are courtesy of Midland Online.

This is a well preserved home with all of the original details like the mosaic tiled bathroom floors.   The neighborhood looks serene and I can imagine a young, hip MCM loving couple taking a stroll down the sidewalks, pushing the baby carriage. 

What say you, readers?

    Andreaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!! If you come across a MCM house in O Canada, please forward the real estate link to me. I have tried a search for them, but not luck so far.

    BTW, it’s cold (again!), damp and rainy, typical northern weather, LOL!

    Saaaaable! Yes, I will definitely keep my eyes open for houses for you, as I like to regularily browse the MLS! The problem is that although my town is chock full of houses from the right time period, ones that haven’t had the MCM renovated out of them are few and far between 🙁

    It is so windy here (again!) today, we may just all blow away here!

    Neat as a pin and super cute! I’ll take it! 🙂 I love the counter and back splash color.
