You know me now; spending way too much time browsing Zillow listings when I know full well I’m not buying a new home. However, the one I just discovered is a real winner, and you have to see it for yourself.
Zillow Gone Wild did it again: it showed me another beautiful home that I will never own. But that doesn’t mean a girl can’t dream. And with its beautiful mid-century design and architecture, this home is an absolute treasure.
Let me show you the Arthur Beckwith house.
Historic Arthur Beckwith Home for Sale in Farmington, Michigan
The Arthur Beckwith House is such an exemplary model of mid-century homes that it was turned into a historic monument in 2002.
What you’ll probably notice right off the bat is that most of the sides of the house are made up of clear glass windows. Can you say, natural light?
It includes five bedrooms, six bathrooms, a spacious kitchen and several living areas, including one with a fireplace. All for the low price of $899,000. Oh and did I mention there is a pool?
If you have the money and don’t mind spending a ton on window cleaners, this gorgeous home could be yours. All 3,000 square feet of it.
While this home is absolutely stunning, there is one glaring downside…a slight lack of privacy issue. Yes, it’s pretty much surrounded by woods, and the rooms have curtains, but still. Maybe someone is at the door and you don’t want to answer, how the hell are you supposed to hide? And there’s just something slightly foreboding about it…someone in the comments section of Zillow Gone Wild’s Instagram post said it best, “Looks like the setting from Scream 17.” This basically means it looks like the perfect location for a horror movie murder spree. But to each his own. Take a look at the photos below to decide for yourself if it’s spooky or charming.
