    I love that paneled room. The sconces in the bedrooms are a nice touch.

    I like it! The front entryway with the staircase mainly parallel to the front of the house, the original sun & sleeping porches, the windows, incl. their incorporated ledges & seats, the various French doors & single glazed multi-paned doors throughout the house, the large built-in bookcase, the paneled room, the gleaming hw floors… And, I like the attention to detail in the kitchen when they used mint green glass knobs & cabinet pulls to go with the stoves. 👍🏼 (But personally, I would switch out the wine fridges for more drawers and cabinet space.) And, I like the fact that it’s a brick house (less maintenance, unless it’s your unlucky turn to have it re-pointed)!

    I really like the look of old cabinets that don’t have a toe kick. It just looks pleasing to my eye.

    Looks like it belongs in a John Hughes film: or maybe “Home Alone”. Heheheh.

    Accidental John Hughes?

    Not just one, but two vintage stoves in that pale green. Unique!

    And… did anyone else’s mind go right to these lyrics of Paul Simon’s “America”?
    “Michigan seems a dream to me now
    It took me four days to hitch-hike from Saginaw
    I’ve come to look for America…”

    I don’t see why grand old houses like this couldn’t become alternatives to traditional retirement homes. Three or more retirees could pool their resources, make individual apartments (no kitchens there: changes to the original fabric would be kept at a minimum) on the second and even third floors (an elevator would be a must), leave the first floor as common space, and hire a part-time cook and cleaning service. Perfect, except for a few inevitable clashes of personality and government interference re “codes”.
    Never mind…

      It’s a great idea that some of us have mentioned on OHD. I’ve explored it in some detail: it’s best done on a house-by-house basis with one owner, minimal alterations and a communal living agreement. Multiple ownership is too complicated, and health-care services have to be handled by the individual for their own needs.
      The idea could take off if there was a general set of guidelines and some oversight, possibly with a web-based organization coordinating owners and residents. There are millions of folks in the 65-90 year range that don’t need a nursing home but could happily live in a communal home with shared services.

    This the the house that Lefty Frizzel moved into after he sold his father-in-law his Klondike claim. :^)
