Amazing Northern Michigan Homes: Charm and Character Beyond Words in Downtown Traverse City

It’s a home with history.

Built in the heart of Traverse City in 1896, it was originally the home of former Governor William Milliken’s grandfather.

This week’s Amazing Northern Michigan Home has been given a modern update and it’s loaded with personality.

Whitney Amann and photojournalist Jeremy Erickson take us there for a look around.

“It is a charming, restored home on a main street in Traverse City, Michigan which is near and walking distance to both Bays and on one of the best streets in the city,” said Karen Schmidt, real estate agent for Coldwell Banker Schmidt Real Estate.

Charming, warm and located in a highly sought after neighborhood in Traverse City.

This century old, five bed, nearly four-thousand square foot home is an incredible blend of Victorian era beauty and modern flair.

That blend is highly noticeable on the second floor, where four of the beautiful bedrooms are located.

The master also has a laundry center in one of the two walk-in closets and a cozy sitting area.

Down on the main floor, you’ll find a couple themed living spaces and the incredible kitchen where you can relax while you keep an eye on dinner.

“The kitchen has been completely renovated,” said real estate agent Danielle Jerome. “There are updated cabinets as well as a very large oversize island and a fun stove but there is also on the floor a little bit of a unique Chicago brick tile, which is kind of a fun, little surprise as well.”

The third floor of the home holds the last bedroom and is a great spot to grab a drink, kick back and watch the big game.

This fantastic home has a nice backyard with a flowing fountain and a spacious three car garage.

Inside or out, it’s a great place to entertain and enjoy family and friends.
