Bidding Frenzy Erupts Over Bizarre-Looking House

New, 11 comments

It might look like a weathered hot tub, but this '30s-era Art Moderne oddball in East English Village has many admirers. Owned by the Detroit Land Bank, it generated no less than 333 bids during its auction last week. After several overtime periods, the top bid landed at $53,600. That's an impressive showing for a three-bedroom, 2,200-square-foot rehab project with a moldy basement and no furnace. Then again, maybe the interior's modernist details will really shine post-remod.
