August 24, 2012Won’t You Be My Neighbor-Royal Oak, Michigan
One of our readers and a new friend, George, has his home up for sale. George wrote Retro Ruth explaining he had to relocate from the suburbs to the big city of Detroit. His home is a real MCM gem, gang and we have the photos to prove it!
Located at 616 Wellesley Avenue, this classic ranch home was built in 1950. There are 3 bedrooms, 1 full bath, 1 half bath and 1,431 square feet. The asking price is $149,900.00 and Max Broock Realtors has the listing and may be contacted via their website, www.maxbroock.com or ring them up at their Royal Oak office, 248-548-9100.
I’ll let you find all of the MCM treasures, readers and comment on them. Oxygen is on stand-by.

The Living Room. Looks like a nice, flowing floor plan.
The Dining Room
Okay, George! I wasn’t certain which one of the two photos below was the 3rd bedroom or part of another room, so would you please clarify these rooms? Thank you!
The Sun Room (although the description called it a Florida Room, but we don’t live in Florida).
The Full Bathroom
(Here’s where I explain about George and the photos. The realtor did not include shots of the bathroom. George was so kind as to take a few photos for us. Kudos!)
Notice, readers, the framed nudes? According to George, the original owner’s wife was an artist and fortunately had left these behind in the attic to be discovered! Looks like sepia tones pastels.
Also, my sense of color must be off, as I thought the tile was light green and dark brown. Nope, says George, it’s gray and burgundy!
So, gang! Are you ga-ga over this house? I am! I am! Tell us what you adore about George’s home!
George, like I’ve said before, if I could clone myself I would definitely buy your home and live there. Thank you so very much for all of the information and photographs! If I missed anything, or if I made a boo-boo, feel free to correct me!
