Could be a McClure?

This 1965 home is based on the design of #1 Meadowlawn, AKA: The Fuller Court Gathercole home.

The home itself sits on a large property with a barn off of the busy Eastern Avenue in Gaines Township, a suburb of Grand Rapids. This home is just down the road from Meadowlawn #1, considered a crown jewel of McClure’s body of work. However, we have not been able to verify if it is a McClure home even though there are only a few differences between the two.

The most notable change between these two properties is the enclosed garage. Where the Eastern Ave. home sits on a wider lot with the ability to have a garage entrance from the side, the Fuller Court home has a carport more traditional of McClure homes.

The home has been fully updated throughout and little of the original interior or exterior craftsmanship can be found. This home is a prime candidate to be renovated into a Mid Century masterpiece once more.
