    A real stunner, and a very definite FLW influence. Love the bathrooms, but overall this is a little “high style” for me – a house I’d love to tour but no necessarily live in. And what is with that goofy kitchen layout?

    Wow, just wow. Not really my style either, but still stunning. Loving all the built-ins, paneling, and what a floor layout! Not much I don’t like about this house. But I can’t imagine trying to keep up with the cleaning. But if I could afford it, I could also afford a maid,lol! I really, really dig this house.

    I could move right in and be happy. Well, maybe not in Michigan, but here in California. Oh, but then it wouldn’t be that ridiculously low price! What a deal for such a great property.
