The current owner’s health problems are making it impossible for them to finish their dream home. This opens the door to opportunity for you.
Here is the rest of the story!
Gary and Cheryl Kuta moved the historic “Hoben House” from its original site on the campus of Kalamazoo College to their lot at 304 Monroe St. in the summer of 2011.
While the Kutas have accomplished much over the past months to re-furbish this neighborhood landmark, poor health precludes them from being able to complete the restoration process or moving into the home.
We are offering this significant 3-4 bedroom, 2.5 bath home with over 2,800 sq ft as a “work in progress” to interested parties at a price of $175,000 (now reduced to $150,000).
Our hope is that the next owner will carry forward this exciting project and will make this important piece of Kalamamazoo history their own.
The Historic Hoben House was moved 125 yards to a new lot in June of 2011 to make room for the Arcus Center for Social Justice. We have compiled lots of interesting information about the move of this historic Kalamazoo landmark! You will be amazed!
This video is a time lapse of the moving of the house and may take a minute or two to load, but it is fascinating and worth the wait!
The house weighed 155 tons and took more than ten hours to move 125 yards.
