Houzz TV: This Dream Midcentury Home in a Forest Even Has Its Own Train
While searching for land on a local real estate site in Grand Rapids, Michigan, a husband and wife kept coming across photos of a grim-looking house in a wooded area of the city. They tried avoiding it, but their real estate agent eventually persuaded them to go see it.
The photos hadn’t lied. The deteriorating home had been untouched for 20 years, and the front of the house had a large wood face that had turned orange in the sun. Not to mention that the woods on the 20-acre property were overgrown, and the creek had run over its banks and flooded the wetlands, so there was water everywhere.
