About This Old House

Historic home off the main street in the quaint and peaceful City of Linden, Michigan. Considered by many to be the most charming, and favored, home in this entire Mayberryish neighborhood. Immaculate move-in condition with updates throughout.

Three-sided relaxing porch, large private patio, and beautifully landscaped yard with both a romantic rope swing in the backyard and custom Victorian porch swing in the front.

Restored gorgeous chandeliers and wall lights ranging from 1890s to the 1940s. Curtains, curtain rods, and shades either custom or restored vintage. Tiger quartered oak floors in kitchen, tiger quartered cherry floors in the full lower bath, and refinished fir floors in parlor and living room. Walnut handrails and antique newel. Hardwood cherry trim, three-board baseboards, and bead-board paneling.

6 inch half-round gutters on house and garage with Terminator gutter guards in the upper section of the house. Central air conditioning and three-zone boiler baseboard heat with updated electrical, updated plumbing (including new fixtures), and water softener. Detached 435 sq ft. garage with reinforced trusts for extra ample storage, new garage door, and restored vintage side door entrance. Hand-built cobblestone drive on one side of house and black-top driveway into the garage. Entire chimney retucked and top 1/3 taken apart and rebuilt with a new flue.

Basement clean, dry, and walls whitewashed with concrete floor. Exposed exterior rock foundation cleaned and retucked.

Spacious well-designed pantry and convenient first-floor utility with shelves. 3 year-old appliances. Refinished vintage kitchen and bathroom sinks. Wavy late 1800s glass in many windows, custom storm windows from Spencerworks each specially fitted for each window, and great insulation provides year-around energy efficiency.

So many other gems and details throughout. Lovingly and carefully restored by a classical portrait artist.
