This Historic, Mid-Century Glass House is For Sale in Michigan
You know me by now; spending way too much time scrolling through Zillow listings when I know dang well that I ain't buying a new house. However, this one I just came across is a real winner, and you've got to see it for yourself.
Zillow Gone Wild has done it again: it's shown me another gorgeous home that I will never own. But that doesn't mean a girl can't dream. And with its gorgeous mid-century design and architecture, this house is an absolute treasure.
Allow me to show you the Arthur Beckwith House.
Historic Arthur Beckwith House For Sale in Farmington, Michigan
The Arthur Beckwith House is such an exemplary model of mid-century homes that it was made into a historic landmark in 2002.
What you'll probably notice right off the bat is that most of the sides of the home are made of clear glass windows. Can you say, natural light?
It has five bedrooms, six bathrooms, a spacious kitchen, and multiple living areas, including one with a fireplace. All for the low, low price of $899,000. Oh, and did I mention there's a pool?
If you've got the money, and don't mind spending a ton on window cleaning supplies, this gorgeous home could be yours. All 3,000 square feet of it.
While this home is absolutely stunning, there is a glaringly obvious drawback...a slight issue with a lack of privacy. Yes, it's pretty well surrounded by woods, and the bedrooms have curtains, but still. Maybe someone's at the door and you don't want to answer, how the heck are you supposed to hide? And there's just something slightly foreboding about it...someone in the comment section of the Zillow Gone Wild Instagram post said it best, "Looks like the setting for Scream 17." This basically means it looks like the perfect spot for a horror movie murder spree. But to each their own. Take a look through the pics below to decide for yourself whether it's creepy or charming.
