This affordable mid-Michigan Tudor gives big Wes Anderson energy

Cue up The Kinks, put on some vintage garb in muted tones, and whatever you do, make sure it's friggin' symmetrical, OK? There's just something about this grand Tudor home in Jackson that makes us want to confess our love to our wooden-fingered, adopted sister and/or private school teacher, and settle into a Futura-font covered life. This 1910-built, 4,700 square-foot home has us thinking of filmmaker Wes Anderson.

For $219k, the home features 6 bedrooms, 5.5 baths, and 4 fireplaces, all of which are situated on a private .44 acre lot. The rooms, described as "sprawling," boast unique architectural details, like arched doorways, as well as custom designs, like doors, banisters, and light fixtures. The gently lived-in home, as illustrated by these photos, was clearly the home of a collector of books, records, furniture, and a few electric organs.

The kitchen offers an adjoining prep kitchen with butcher block counters and lots of built-in storage. There's a classic and totally classy library, too, and there's a cool trippy half-bath on the first floor with a hidden vanity that Margot Tenenbaum would absolutely smoke cigarettes and ponder the meaninglessness of it all.

If you're a playwright, a dysfunctional trio of mourning brothers, a camp counselor, vengeful oceanographer, a pretentious private school student and son of a barber, a coked-out cowboy author of historical fiction, or Bill Murray, this home could be your Rushmore.
