OHU50K NOTES

This c.1904 fixer upper is located on a corner lot on a street of gorgeous older homes in the Historic Northside neighborhood of Battle Creek, Michigan.

The first residents of this area came to Battle Creek to practice their Quaker faith. In later decades, beautiful homes were built and the neighborhood thrived. As the owners of those homes began to age and move out, the demographics of the neighborhood changed. About 15 years ago, however, young families began trickling in.

One might look at the crime stat map below and be turned off, but the proud residents of Northside have formed a tight knit community with a tradition of helping one another. They watch each other’s children, have backyard barbecues, and throw an annual summertime Orchard Street block party that always draws a crowd.

As for the house itself, the attic windows lend views of the neighborhood. I especially love the alcove with the window seats. The penny tile in the bathroom is another favorite detail.

REALTOR COMMENTS

This old fixer upper has had many updates over the years but maintains a lot of charm. Uniquely styled kitchen with breakfast nook and desk/work area, extremely large formal dining room and a fireplace in living room. Double staircases go the second floor where you find 4 large bedrooms and more room on the third floor, multi purpose room and more bedrooms. The large front porch has a swing on this nice corner lot with a detached 2 car garage.
