The VeenstraTeam is excited to offer this well loved solid brick home in the popular Westwood neighborhood (Kalamazoo Promise qualified). The Kalamazoo Promise offers free college tuition to any student who attends the Kalamazoo Public Schools. Some painting and floor covering work will make this well maintained house your warm and cozy home. Check out the wood burning fireplace, the large dining area, the den or office on the main floor, the built in storage areas throughout the house and the hard wood flooring under the dated carpeting!
AND NOW FOR THE REST OF THE STORY…
The original owners here still love the house and only recently decided to move into a retirement community. Notice all of the built-in, specialized, cabinetry in the kitchen and the dining area! Looking for an even larger dining room or family room? The wall between the den and the dining area could be removed to create a wonderfully large and bright room overlooking the back yard.
We believe that there are oak floors in all 3 bedrooms, the bedroom hall way and the large living room. The owner recalls that there was some termite damage in the den area which was repaired several years ago (15?).They had the damage repaired and have maintained a contract with Orkin Pest Control ever since. The seller estimates the furnace and central air are 10-12 years old and the roof shingles are 8-10 years old.
ABOUT WESTWOOD: Westwood is a wonderful, affordable, family neighborhood on the west side of Kalamazoo that is a part of Kalamazoo Township. There is also group of streets in the middle of the Township that are actually part of the city of Kalamazoo. Though these streets are not “officially” part of Westwood, the Westwood Community Association is happy to include residents from these streets into the Association and there is a great deal of cooperation between the city and township leaders, police and fire departments. The Westwood Community Association meets on the 3rd Monday of each month at the Westwood Community room (which is at the Westwood Fire Department on Nichols Road.) The Westwood neighborhood has an active Crime Alert system that is sponsored by the Veenstra Team that is used to keep the neighborhood safe. Many of the young girls and boys in the Westwood neighborhood spend many enjoyable spring and summer hours at the Westwood Little League field, playing baseball. Families in Westwood are also very strong participants in AYSO Soccer which sponsors soccer for youth at the Soccer Complex on Drake Road. You will find lots of kids and adults on bikes, walking, jogging, visiting and enjoying their yards in the Westwood neighborhood.
VEENSTRA TEAM TIDBIT (We thought it would be fun to pass on a tidbit of information about the Veenstra Team with some of our house posts too). David Veenstra got his Masters degree in Marketing from Western Michigan University.
