This clapboard cottage looks stolen from a small town somewhere in New England, but the scrapped-out interior is pure Detroit. Just east of Indian Village on Fischer Street (technically East Village) the 129-year-old house is confidently asking $69,900—a steep price for what amounts to a wooden shell. The realtor will have you note, however, that this wooden shell has views of the Detroit River.
The realtor pitches this place as the ideal restoration project, going as far as to include potential layouts in the listing gallery. Those drawings (along with plenty of over-the-top broker babble) can be found at the link below.
