Located in the up-and-coming Bagley neighborhood near Marygrove College and the University District, this 4-bedroom, 3.5 bath home is a 1928-diamond-in-the-rough. The home has original hardwood floors, a jewel box of a half-bath dripping with period tile, and a massive central chimney that gives the house a commanding presence on the street. That's only the good news, of course—the house is listed at just $24.9K for a reason.
While this home is the quintessential Tudor, complete with a gorgeous arched front door set off by intricate brickwork, the kitchen hasn't had any attention since the early 1960s and there's some very unfortunate carpeting in the study (think jewel tones). Of course, there's also a 900-square-foot finished basement with its own fireplace that was clearly built as living space when the house was new, and the living room fireplace adds charm and character with its stone mantel and brick hearth. With a lot of TLC, imagination and, of course, money, this house could easily return to its former glory. At $24.9K, there should be room in the budget to give this place the love and attention it deserves.
