This one-of-a-kind, stone storybook cottage in Eaton Rapids, Michigan has sold for $315,000 after hitting the market in August for $339,000. The home sits on 115-feet of river frontage on the Grand River in Eaton Rapids with access to a pedestrian bridge that is conveniently located adjacent to the property for easy access to downtown. Built in 1918, the stone exterior home showcases three floors with stunning quarter sawn white oak beams, trim, crown moulding and oak floors. Crown moulding in the rotunda is curved in beauty and the field stone exterior is extremely impressive. Rumour says the stones were gathered from area farms, hand washed in the river and placed at the guidance of Margaret Bromeling, wife of M.P. Bromeling, who built the home.
The parlour with field stone fireplace adjoins the piano/music room with curved benches in the first-floor rotunda. The second floor has four bedrooms including a master suite with an 11-foot x 15-foot sitting room, separated by two sets of 15 light beveled glass doors. The second and third bedrooms share a sitting room. The fourth bedroom in the front of the home encompasses the rotunda with a curved window seat. Several of the large closets are cedar lined. Walk up to the third floor and you have a ballroom with curved seating in the rotunda. A window in the ceiling was an opening for smoke to exit while the gentlemen enjoyed their cigars. This incredible home has been lovingly and meticulously maintained by the current owner for over 35 years. This beautiful property was on the market for $339,000 with Pete Holoway of Coldwell Banker.
