The holiday spirit knows no season, and today we have a home that’s sure to invoke sugar plum visions or just real estate curiosity. This Royal Oak home on Washington Avenue sported festive Christmas decorations outside and hosted many festive holiday gatherings; owners say passers-by would sneak in during the holiday season. It’s an old farmhouse with a big addition, and it’s listed at $475,000.
The home is just over 3,600 square feet, with the addition built by a previous owner. Many pieces from the Pfeiffer brewery adorn the house: floor coverings, light fixtures, fireplace. The current owners have lived in the house for 40 years and ran a day care center from the house for 28 years. They also raised eight children there. Their end-of-year parties would attract more than 150 guests. Inside, find five bedrooms, three bathrooms, coffered ceilings, so much woodwork, a shuffleboard, pool table, and hot tub. You won’t see anything like it in the area. It is listed by the Delia Group.
