Don't tell a Whirlpool engineer in 1960 that it can't be done - unless you want him to design it and show you it can; such is the story of the rear stair and attic expansion project on the 1950 Bedford stone cottage now on the market at 5931 W. Saint Joseph Rd, in the shadows of the historic St. Joe Parish and St. Joe Inn. It wasn't the first time this gem pushed back the boundaries of design - the builder Jim Niemeier designed and troweled the plaster suspended tray up-lit ceiling anchoring the living room "to see if it could be done." Plaster was his forte, and it shows in this one of a kind Mid Century Modern design feature. Speaking of MCM design, have you even looked at the pictures yet? Because you should. Graciously curved cabinets and curved above cabinet bulkheads original in a sea of linoleum like it was installed yesterday grace this well-lit eat-in kitchen like a shrine to early Mid Century Modern design itself. Brand new GE Artistry fridge, stove, microwave, and GE Artistry dishwasher go well with the design and add modern convenience. And thanks to that smartly done addition, the home houses 5 bedrooms, a large main floor laundry room, and 2 full baths featuring near perfect period design and original fixtures. Main bedroom on main level with deep his and hers closets. Additional bedroom and laundry round out the main floor. Upstairs holds 3 bedrooms, one large that used to be divided into two, one on the NE corner, and one that is connected to the original attic stairway - complete with wall-mounted pencil sharpener. The basement is full, unfinished, boasts a brick fireplace, a walk-out stairwell, and is yearning for improvements to take it to the metaphorical next level. The back yard is deep and is bordered by a wooded creek at the rear, the whole yard totals in at over an acre and a quarter. The drive way is looped for your ease and the ease of your guests. The two car garage is connected to the kitchen by an ample screened breezeway with original doors, louvered glass windows, and original hardware - perfect for spring and fall dinners, or entertaining on the rear exposed aggregate patio that connects to the basement stairs. Replacement windows where it counts, new entry door, newer roof, brand new septic system, new garage door openers, new carpet. This is the real German Township deal. This old house is ready to be your classic big yard home today.
