This gorgeous townhouse built in 1893, offers over 2100 square feet of space. The unit features exposed brick walls, a full basement, refinished hardwood floors and a newly remodeled kitchen with concrete countertops and a brand-new dishwasher. There's also in-unit laundry, a bonfire pit in the nicely appointed backyard, and a walk-out roof deck offering views of Detroit's skyline. Photos show some projects still underway in the midtown rental, but the listing swears it'll be 100% ready for tenants by Nov 1.
While $2750 is a huge ask, the space, amenities and character make it a far nicer option than, say, a similarly priced corporate rental downtown. The house has skylights, many tall windows and leaded glass. The red stone exterior gives the house tremendous presence on the street, and it's also a rare pet-friendly city unit. One drawback here is a lack of off-street parking. And the kitchen, while pretty with its tin ceiling and large window, seems a little austere.
If you want luxury digs with a homey feel, this could be the place. If you have three roommates and like living and working downtown, it might be a workable solution.
