The VeenstraTeam.com is excited to offer this solid 3 bedroom home in a great neighborhood in Kalamazoo MI. Qualifying for the Kalamazoo Promise—free college tuition to students attending Kalamazoo Public Schools—this Westwood home is priced so low to reflect the fact that it has not been re-decorated or updated in many years. You’ll get excited about your opportunity to move right in, make improvements over time, enjoy wonderfully low monthly payments and relish your home with its hardwood floors, an extra garage or workshop and a large fenced back yard.
AND NOW FOR THE REST OF THE STORY…
The Frenthway family has enjoyed living in this house for over 50 years. They had it custom built in 1946 and they still have the original blueprints! The main floor master bedroom was added to house in 1974. Roof shingles were most recently torn off and replaced with new in 1998.
Mrs. Frenthway moved to Grand Rapids 4 years ago to be near her kids and the house has been used by her grandchildren (or sat vacant) since then. While the house appears to be mechanically and structurally sound, it will need some updating and decorating to make it look and feel like home.
The house was appraised (as is) for $86,000 in July of 2008. We are happy to make the appraisal available to an interested buyer. We estimate that this house, fixed up and sharp, would be worth over $100,000 in today’s market.

ABOUT WESTWOOD: Westwood is a wonderful, affordable, family neighborhood on the west side of Kalamazoo MI 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 is a big brother through the Big Brother, Big Sister organization and has a delightful “little brother” named Antwan. Big Brothers is always looking for additional volunteers to share some time with young boys and girls who have requested an adult mentor in their life. It’s a rewarding relationship.
