Curbed

For the incredible deal of $450,000, Jack White, formerly of the White Stripes, bought a restored home by renowned architect George Nelson in Kalamazoo, Michigan. The singer hails from Detroit, so we love that he chose to purchase a house so close to home. White’s $45 million net worth makes his Michigan hideaway a real steal for the wealthy musician.

Writers retreat for White

The home was built in 1958 and is approximately 3,500 sq feet. White uses the home nestled in the woods as a writers retreat and interestingly considers himself a guardian of the property, rather than the owner. White stated, “I’m a believer in nobody owns anything,” he said. “If you could take care of it and pass it along, it’s good.” Surprisingly the musician is a design enthusiast, no doubt his passion drove home to purchase this unique, and affordable, home.
