Looking for a homestead, but want to be close to the city?  Want a house with character?  Like the Retro look and windows? I have the perfect house for you!

This house is just outside of Grand Rapids and they say was inspired by the Swiss Family Robinson and from the looks of it, maybe hasn’t EVER been updated.

It sits on 31 acres, which is unheard of, this close to the city. Only problem is, you’re not allowed to develop the land in anyway, so you have 31 acres of growth and tranquility.

A life of wildlife watching awaits:

The house is huge, over 3,000 sq ft.

With lots of big windows.

Even some windows you could probably walk right through.  Although, I’m not quite sure why you would want a window that big right next to where you sit to do your business, but hey, again, you’re on 31 acres, so maybe a deer will come say hi.

The house features stairs that you’d expect to see the Brady Bunch standing on… **which Christmas picture idea! You could have your family “Brady Bunch” on the stairs**

The master bathroom is a bit bizarre... First, it’s pink.  Secondly, bidets are weird; and the bathtub being floor level is not something I dig.

Something that I DO dig is this awesome Dr. Evil hangout area!

All in all, the house is just over 3,000 sq ft. with 5 bedrooms, 3 baths and on 31 acres.
