Grand Rapids is one of the fastest-growing housing markets in the country, so it isn't too surprising to hear that an absolutely beautiful home with a jaw-dropping price tag of $1.6 million home just sold in East Grand Rapids. The home is stunning in its own right, but not only is the home unique but where it's located is just as incredible as the architecture.

Home Overview

According to the listing on Zillow, this all-brick Italian Renaissance-inspired home was built by the architectural firm that built the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island, Rindge & Rindge. Its aesthetic is consistent in each room and the surrounding garden. As it was put in the listing, it had "meticulous craftsmanship" and was originally built for a Grand Rapids furniture designer. Upon stepping into this home, you are transported to another place, and back in time. The home features a real walnut that serves as an accent piece. The home was sold by Lauren Featherston with Greenridge Realty.

The Golden Triangle

The home is located in the Golden Triangle of East Grand Rapids. For those unaware of this incredibly fortunate residence area, the Cascadia Community Association/The Golden Triangle refers to homes that live inside East Grand Rapids enough to have access to East Grand Rapids schools, but still only pay Grand Rapids Township taxes. To put into perspective why this is such a glorious perk to have, EGR ranks as the 12th wealthiest city in Michigan, so their taxes are far higher than Grand Rapids Township.
