The University of Michigan on Tuesday finalized the sale of Inglis House to a buyer who intends to use it as a family residence.
"We are pleased that Inglis House will once again become a family home," says Jim Kosteva, director of community relations. The home is being purchased by Dan and Marlee Musser.
The 12,000-square-foot house and property was donated to the university in 1950 by Elizabeth Inglis following the death of her husband, James Inglis. In the past, the university used the house for overnight guests of the university and for small group meetings.
The university administration recommended selling the property and the Board of Regents approved the sale in March, directing proceeds to be used to support students through a newly established Inglis Family Scholarship.
The final sale price was $2.1 million for the house and a 4.5-acre parcel. An additional 4.6 acres of land has been added to the adjacent Nichols Arboretum.
