Heritage Hill, Grand Rapids MI. This beautiful piece of local history in Grand Rapids’ first neighborhood was built for the local dentist, where he practiced from his small brick office on the side of the home. Nestled among the mansions of former lumber barons and mature tree-lined streets, this Arts & Craft style home hosts a large bath with 4 nice bedrooms upstairs, allowing for an open flow on the main floor. Out back you’ll find the rare pairing of an attached garage with a large, manicured back yard. The gorgeous original oak floors have just been professionally refinished throughout, complemented nicely with original trim and built-in bookcases, fully intact. Seize the opportunity today to invest in this desirable location just outside of downtown GR while it is still affordable.







New Park Slated for Heritage Hill

From the Facebook page: “The parking lot at the corner of Madison and Pleasant is on its way to being converted to a park. The land has been acquired by the City of Grand Rapids in a three-way land swap deal with Kenty County and DeVries Development. The Feb. 20 design charette produced a beautiful plan for the site. Now it will be added to the City’s master plan for parks. But that’s not the end; it’s just the beginning. Now we need to make sure this beautiful idea becomes a reality.”
