Won’t You Be My Neighbor Friday Edition-Benton Harbor, Michigan

By Sablemable


I love finding new MCM homes for sale in my home town and today’s home is a classic!

Built in 1950, this brick ranch has 3 bedrooms, 1 full bathroom, 1 half bathroom and is going for $68,800.00Edgewater Realty has the listing and may be contacted at (269) 983-4783.

Hope you can see the front door design.  And the letter on the screen door scroll is the letter I (I looked up the owner in my 1956 city directory). 













Apparently this was still owned by the original owners, who, thank God, didn’t remodel.

What did you like about this home, readers?

    Super cute! And they would have to throw in that boston terrier planter with the deal if I were able to buy it.

    haha, the agent is my minister’s son-in-law and a good friend of mine. I might have to ask him if they would part with some of that AWESOME furniture….lovely house.

    We went. We saw. We loved! Except the area the house is in. A little part of me died when I saw this house – it was perfect, exactly what we want and needed nothing more than a good cleaning and painting. BUT the area is just a little too seedy and rough for me. Had it been just a couple streets in a different direction we’d be signing papers. I’m so sad….It really is a time capsule!

    We went to the house as well. Jason told me it is an estate of a widow woman who had no other family. So very sad. the estate holders are just selling everything. We were able to purchase the kitchen table and chairs (6 of them, and in perfect condition) and the living room tables and lamps. I am hoping he will get us back in to buy the desk in the one bedroom and the vintage television. It was so weird, for it was like stepping back into time. So, THANK YOU Jan for posting this.
