This weekend in Plymouth: 2017 Fall Festival, Pancake Breakfast, Spaghetti Dinner, Chicken Barbeque (Sponsored by BAKE Real Estate) – Sept 8-10, 2017!

20120908_103518It’s that time of year again!  The kids are back in school and the smell of barbeque smoke drifts through downtown Plymouth as the annual Fall Festival is here.  September 8-10, 2017 will be non-stop pancakes, spaghetti, and barbeque chicken along with carnival rides  for all ages, midway games, concerts, and attractions for everyone.

Downtown streets are closed off and for one weekend, downtown Plymouth is transformed into a local fair with all the pre-requisites.  I have to admit, this is one of my personal favorites of all the festivals that happen in Plymouth – good fun for the whole family and another great reason the area continues to thrive.  For more information, go to: http://www.plymouthfallfestival.com/

The Renovation of 908 Penniman Avenue in Plymouth Michigan by BAKE Real Estate – your Local and Independent REALTORS

Like a vintage automobile, a historic home can sometimes see dramatic changes over its lifetime. What may have been a residence might be converted into a business, and later back again to a residence. A dwelling might be wholly preserved as completely original, but changes over time can also add to the story a home carries with it – like the racing and modification history of a car that is one-of-a-kind.  So the exterior appearance, layout and amount of living space may change. It’s all part of the lifetime of a structure that transcends each individual owner.

We started the 908 Penniman Project 3 years ago and are happy to report that the renovation is now finished.  Originally built in 1910, this downtown Plymouth home has seen many changes over the past century. Most people will remember 908 Penniman as Dr. Gary Krueger’s office, a very well-known local Chiropractor (now retired). We purchased the property from the Kruegers and have re-purposed the building for light office use. This wasn’t exactly a “restoration” project as the home was already highly modified as a doctors’ office with exam rooms, an x-ray machine room, etc.  So without expanding the foot-print of the home, we changed the layout of the main floor, relocated the main entrance, uncovered and added additional windows, and replaced flooring, walls, fixtures, siding, gutters, doors, etc.  It was an extensive renovation that included new electrical, plumbing, mechanical systems, kitchen and baths. The result is a completely updated office building with historical details and influences throughout.  Some of the reclaimed items incorporated into the design of the building include vintage wall sconces, glass, and furniture. We also tried to source much of the material locally.  For example, the porch railings were designed and fabricated in Detroit. With all the new builds and additions taking place in Plymouth and Northville, each project offers a great opportunity for the owners to create something lasting and uniquely their own.

2014 Art in the Park is this Weekend AND Open House Sunday at 1628 Gloucester – both in the City of Plymouth

The 2014 edition of Art in the Park is coming this weekend to downtown Plymouth. Summer is here and Art in the Park is one of Plymouth’s main attractions as the downtown transforms itself into a pedestrian friendly shopping smorgasbord. As usual, there will be plenty to see, do, and buy as long as the weather co-operates.  One of the great things about Plymouth is how walkable the City is – not just the downtown.  We see many visitors park in the neighborhoods and walk downtown to the fair. There are even plenty of garage sales timed to coincide with this event for extreme shopping nirvana. For more information about Art in the Park, you can visit their website at www.artinthepark.com.

We are also planning to hold an open house on Sunday, July 13th between 1-3pm at our listing at 1628 Gloucester in the City of Plymouth.  This charming Ranch home is within walking distance to downtown and offers convenient single floor living within a modestly scaled home in a quiet neighborhood.
