December 28, 2014Won’t You Be My Neighbor – Alden Dow-Designed Home in Saginaw, MI
This week we are going back to the roots of the “Won’t You Be My Neighbor” series! When I started this years and years ago, I started it as a showcase for all the awesome mid-century homes that seem to pop up regularly in my area. Since then, this feature has been passed around, changed, grown and now encompasses not only homes in my area, but mid-century homes all around the world.
But this week, we have a lovely home in Saginaw, Michigan!
This home is located at 408 Ardussi, in Saginaw, Michigan. It was built in 1960 and designed by our own local mid-century celebrity architect, Alden B. Dow. The home has four bedrooms, 2 full bath, 2 half baths and is 2925 square feet. It is for sale by Linda Sarmiento from the Sarmiento Dream Team. You can see the listing here (360 degree tour available!) The listing states:
A piece of architectural history. One of Alden B. Dow’s finest. Over 2,900 square feet ranch. Open floor plan with many custom built-ins. Three bedrooms, 2 full and 2 half baths. Full finished lower level. This sprawling ranch home sits on 4 lots with never ending gardens. Natural light throughout the home. Other features include in ground pool with pool house, basketball court. Finished lower level with bar and Jacuzzi. A great home for entertaining
So, what do you think? This home is very typical of Alden Dow-designed homes, with the white fixtures in colored bathrooms, loads of gorgeous built-ins, lots and lots of space to display works of art, Geneva cabinets (white!). This is really a fun-looking house!
