Set in the Westside neighborhood, this four-bedroom, one full bathroom and one half bath home is about a 15-minute drive from Michigan State University. It's close enough to commute or enjoy the university's events, but far enough to get away from it all. The house has hardwood floors, a gas fireplace and formal dining room. The kitchen has been updated with a new porcelain floor and new appliances, too.

The first floor is a nice compromise between an open and traditional floor plan, with wide openings between the living and dining rooms. Two of those four bedrooms are large and have double closets. Outside, the house features a private deck and a one-car detached garage. New roof and central air only sweeten this deal.
