About 220 Franklin Avenue
SHORT TERM RENTAL APPROVED! This stunning Victorian style home was purchased in the Spring of 2020. Situated in the heart of downtown Grand Haven, this piece of history had been neglected for decades. The current owners went to work undoing years of terrible remodels and tore it down to the original structure. After months of demolition, just about the only thing that remained was the foundation and stick structure. The home was then put back together with modern construction, while saving many original features like the pocket doors, original fire place, stunning stairway and banister, and all of the interior doors, and hardware for the doors. Entering the home, you are struck with soaring ceiling thoughout the main floor. There is a lovely of open concept kitchen and dining room that flows into a private den and office that can both be closed off with the original pocket doors. Moving through the main floor you will find a wet bar, billiards room, laundry room, and a stunning staircase leading upstairs. Each room upstairs has been converted into suite that has an attached bathroom with a tile shower, while one room has a bathtub insert. The crown jewel is a primary bedroom that will leave you speechless. This home is so unique because of it's proximity to downtown Grand Haven, and the fact that it has a short term rental certificate. There isn't another home this size in the area that is this nice, this close to town, and offers the ability to sleep a large group and allows everyone to have a personal space to retreat to at night.
