Come explore this sprawling, all-brick mid-century ranch in the desirable Creston-Cheshire neighborhood! The main floor is a charming modern residence with lots of natural light and plenty of space. Sit and enjoy the window-lined sitting room, or couch it in the traditional 50’s ranch-style living room with huge glass picture window. Eat out back on the deck, in the kitchen, or the formal dining room. Finished knotty pine retro basement features two large rooms and a wet bar for entertaining. Dig a little deeper and you’ll find a workshop with shower stall and bathroom adjacent to a laundry room. Great location close to the Grand River, several parks, bike trails extending across the state, two expressways, downtown Grand Rapids, and public transportation.


Pete was amazing from the get go by providing us with the necessary information we needed to make the right decisions in both selling and buying. He was incredibly friendly, timely, always available and had good connections to other realtors which allowed for smoother and quicker transactions. He’s also makes for a great photographer should you be selling your home. I highly recommend him whether you are selling, buying or both!
