Do you have $1.6 million dollars burning a hole in your pocket? Boy do I have a deal for you!
The historic home that served as Grand Valley State University’s official president’s mansion for 50 years is on the market according to Crain's Grand Rapids Business website.
Actually it's been the home of Dr. Hyung Kim who was president of the former Mercy Health Saint Mary’s in Grand Rapids and his wife Joyce Stoughton-Kim for the past few years ever since former GVSU President Tom and Marcia Haas lived there.
The home, built in 1927, on Plymouth Avenue SE in East Grand Rapids, was sold to GVSU in 1969 to be used as the president's residence, and until 2019 three presidents and their families have lived there, Arend Lubbers from 1969-2001; Mark Murray from 2001-2006; and Thomas Haas from 2006-2019.
Let's take a tour!
DRIVEWAY AND GARAGE
There is so much to this house. It's a three-story, five-bed, seven-bath home that boasts 5,670 square feet of finished living space on 0.67 acres with an attached two-car garage.
The inside includes five fireplaces, a sun room, a fully modernized kitchen, an expansive main-floor living room, three offices, a third-floor bonus room, and a finished basement with a wet bar, wine cellar, family room and ample storage.
There is one rather hidden unique part of the house. It's an odd little narrow silverware closet next to the kitchen that opens to reveal hand-scrawled growth charts for the family members of those GVSU presidents.
Also, at one point, the backyard had a pool, and there’s plenty of room to add one again.
Some family is really going to enjoy this gem of a home!
