    I think this is quite charming. I don’t even mind the 70’s kitchen, but I’m weird that way.

    I, too, think the 1970s kitchen is a trip.

    A part of me loathes it.

    Another part of me is fascinated, and appreciative, that it is a total time capsule, and looks actually well done.

    Scarily, I think the latter part of me would win out if I were to purchase this house, and I would likely restore, rather then vaporize, the kitchen.

    So, botto1968, you are not alone in your weirdness.

      I love the way you write Ross! It’s exquisite. I’ve never heard of someone describing what they would do to a kitchen as “vaporizing it”, but with the kitchens I’ve seen, that would be the perfect thing to do. 🙂

      I grew up in the 70’s and this kitchen brings me back in time. I love it, and would have a hard time ripping it out. Love the staircase too, and there’s a claw foot tube in the bathroom. You can see it past the Dutch door. 🙂

    Jonesville is about 15 or 20 miles from here and is a very pretty town. I hope someone buys this and spruces it up nicely.

    The only giveaway to the original style of the house is the staircase. There is the circa 1890 remodel, the 1920 remodel, and the dreadful 1970 remodel.

    This would have had ceiling medallions, gas lights and high style wallpapers when built. I don’t know if the area would support the cost of undoing everything that has been done to this poor house. I feel sorry for this house and all that has been done to it, it deserves better and I hope someone comes along to rescue it.

    Paul is right; the original house on the exterior that would suggest an 1860’s to mid-1870’s construction date with the heavy eave corbels, but inside are several phases of remodeling as noted. The staircase seems to be original as well as some of the thick moldings and trim seen in some of the rooms. Michigan was a large producer of fine hardwoods when this house was built and this bountiful natural harvest is often reflected in the interior millwork of old houses there. Not sure there was ever a full width porch on this one but there was probably a smaller portico in front of the entry. Given its large size and impressive presence, there might be some historical photos or illustrations showing what this house looked like originally.

    This is a pretty decent house for the age. I am suprised by the prices of the Michigan houses (I live in Michigan) considering the economic situation. They’re way over priced. I think a lot of houses will stay unsold for quite some time unless some rich person wants to take a chance but I don’t think Michiganders are doing as well as these prices seem to suggest.
