The Big Beige: Home Proves That Sometimes Detroit is a Blank Slate

New, 4 comments

A home [correction: that was built in 2000] on a lot purchased in 1998 for $60,000 is on the market for $399,000 over by the Detroit riverfront. The listing screams to us, "look at my soaring ceilings, marble floors, and three fireplaces," but we have trouble seeing anything but a sea of beige, beige, beige and little bit of gold. We know not to say that "Detroit is a blank slate," but in this colorless home, we find that phrase to be all too true. The 4,500 square footer has 4 1/2 bathrooms, a whirlpool tub, a three-car garage, and riverfront views. Buy it for the location and BYO Benjamin Moore.
