This week we see just how far our money will go in Holland, Michigan. The lakeside enclave ranks among one of the most beautiful places to visit in spring, after all.

Blooming With Tulips

Image for 11040 TIBBSFew months ago, I wrote up 11040 Tibbs, right down the street from me, gorgeous 5696 square foot home built in 2009.  The property started as a lot attached to the home next door, who then sold and parceled off the .70 acres. It has five bedrooms, five and a half baths, four living areas, a beautiful outdoor living area with waterfall and pool,  21 foot ceilings, hand-scraped wood flooring, travertine tile, granite counters, chef’s kitchen with abundance of storage, master with sitting area with walk in closet that wraps around to a study with shelves.. I said that Holland picked up this number for $935,000 — a home run!

The property was, and still is listed, with Clay Stapp, who told me that it is not the Ranger Derek Holland who owns this but another Derek Holland, a buddy in medical sales. I know that when the Rangers were in the playoffs even the kids across the street thought Derek lived here.Image for 11040 TIBBSImage for 11040 TIBBSImage for 11040 TIBBSImage for 11040 TIBBSImage for 11040 TIBBS

I text Clay, who is laughing his a#* off. Is it the Rangers Holland’s home, I ask? Let’s say YES, he teases back.

This house is literally down the street from me. The new Northaven Trail Katy Trail extension is behind it and awesome. Clay has it listed now for, I hope you are sitting down, $1.4 million.

I’m listing my house next week. It belongs to Candie Evans, a famous actress!
