This weekend is the Michigan State verse Notre Dame football game. Being that I am a MSU fan, this is sort of a big deal. Unfortunately, I will not be able to watch as I will be at Pilates teacher training. However, to honor the Spartans and hopefully send them good luck tomorrow, I thought I would select East Lansing for this week's realty round up. East Lansing is the home of Michigan State University. The University is the eighth largest in the United States with approximately 50,000 students. The life of the area is centered on the University especially in the fall and with a home game. Some local finds include:
- Golden Harvest - the go to place for breakfast, one reviewer even claimed it was the best breakfast in Michigan
- Crunchy's - known for having the "most spartan spirit" and the best beer selection in the area, this looks like a great place for watching the game
- Peanut Barrel - loved by students and alumni (my mom included) this place is known for their burgers, back patio and long island iced tea
House #1: $0 - $250,000
I think this house is really charming. It has great curb appeal, a nice backyard and deck and lots of the original finish work.
House #2: $250,000 - $500,000
This home needs a little TLC but has great bones. I love the big windows on the back of the house, the upper deck and its historic detailing.
House #3: $500,000 - $750,000
This stately home sit on a huge lot and is centrally located. It features 4 levels, hardwood floors, a walnut paneled library and three fireplaces.
House #4: 750,000 - $1,000,000
Located just east of East Lansing in Okemos, this large home has 100 feet of river frontage. It needs quite a bit of updating but I think it has good potential and seems to be in a sought after neighborhood.
