Our House in West Bloomfield



Our House


This is our current house and we have been fairly happy with it.It is a center entrance colonial with an attached two car garage on about one third of an acre.

Entrance and Living Room


The Living Room is just to the left as you enter the house.There is a Den with double doors that close and built in book shelves just to the right of the entryway. There is a coat closet with double doors to the right of the front door.




The house has a flow to it.You can chase the dog in circles through the main floor.


Dining Room




The kitchen is fairly large.The cabinets are old and should be replaced.The stove is modern and has a ceramic surface and two ovens.The dishwasher is a new quiet version.My wife would prefer a kitchen on an outside wall.That would improve both the ventilation and the natural light,


Laundry Room


There is a Laundry Room/Mud Room between the garage and the kitchen.There are wood floors in the entryway, kitchen, mud room, family room and Den.


Family Room


There is a family room with vaulted ceilings and a wood burning fireplace off the kitchen.It is the largest room in the house except for the basement. We donít like the massive brick wall around the fireplace. It makes this room dark. Off the family room is the three season porch.


Three SeasonPorch


There is a large deck off of the porch with two stairways down to the back yard.








The back yard is fenced so we can let the dog run.


Master Bedroom


The Master Bedroom has a wood burning fireplace and vaulted ceiling.It has an attached walk-in closest and master bath.The bathroom has a shower and whirlpool tub.

Walk-in Closet

Work/Exercise Room


There is a total of about 3000 square feet of living space.The covered porch does not count as living space as it is not heated.The basement has only one staircase and does not count either because Michigan doesnít count basement space without separate egress.


The Tax man says the house is worth $400,000.00 but the market is slow and I donít know what we will get for it.
