                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1999

                      About the owner: I have put a lot of my heart and soul into this place and love the vibe. When I am not traveling, or working, I love to visit my Westside Home. Grand Rapids is large enough to have all the things you expect from a big city with out a lot of the confinement. You can drive out of grand rapids 10 miles in any direction and enjoy the raw untouched beauty, awesome rivers/lakes, and green space Michigan is well known for. I have lived in many different areas in Michigan and I would say the westside is the best side. This home is an extention of my heart and I hope you will feel welcome as a fellow traveller of this world when you walk through the doors.

                      Why the Owner Chose Grand Rapids:
                      Grand Rapids is close to everything and everywhere you want to be in West MI. Some places in MI require a half hour drive or more to procure grocerices. I used to live Up North and loved the natural beauty but began to see the limitted access as a disadvantage. Where the Grand Rapids area offers the convenience of Michigans second largest city and a bounty of enviromental purity I value so much. Just a 25 mile drive to Lake MI and all the perks of city life. What more can you ask for?

                      The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
                      This home is in the perfect location. Right off the main drag that takes you directly from the city to the lakeshore. Direct access to Interstate I96, Highway 131, and M-45(Lake MI Drive). So you can have a direct route downtown, or to the lakeshore. Take advantage of the massage room and book a spa treatment while you stay. It's like your own private B and B without the nonsense. There is a gym and a coffee shop right accross the street and a killer diner with great breakfast and burgers within walking distance.
