A few turn-of-the-century gems are hiding on the leafy streets of Old Redford. Constructed in 1908, this three-bedroom cottage seems unaware that its neighborhood was annexed by Detroit in the 1920s, or that a major urban area has grown up around it. The wraparound porch is fantastic, but it's just the beginning. Out back, the yard stretches out for over half an acre.
The interior also has its charms. Look for plenty of wood detailing, contoured ceilings, and a narrow, winding stairway. The total square footage is just under 2,000, with sizable bedrooms and one full bathroom.
A couple more spaces worth mentioning: The large basement comes with a laundry area and two work benches, as well as an "off season storage room." If that's not enough, know that the garage--yes, there is a garage--is built in what used to be the property's horse barn.
