Cascade Neighborhood Absorption Report

Caravelle Village is an established subdivision built in the late 1960's

 and 1970's just south of Burton Street, east of Kraft Avenue and west

of Cascade Road in Cascade Township.  These Grand Rapids Homes

have the traditional mix of two stories, tri-levels and ranches.  A desirable

place to live with median priced homes, Forest Hills Public Schools, and

 close to 28th shopping and restaurants. Originally built by a variety of

 builders, the homes here are quality construction in a safe neighborhood

and close to the historic village of Cascade and Gerald Ford International
