At $1975, the Kirby St place we reported on last month wasn't exactly a bargain, but did come furnished, and not with granny's maroon-upholstered nightmares, like some (even pricier) Detroit listings. Kirby St just listed another unit. This unfurnished deal (of sorts) rents for a mere $1525 a month. This 2-bedroom, 2-bath space has hardwood floors, a fully loaded kitchen, a security system, exposed brick, and original moldings.
The lighting fixtures and pretty kitchen make this place unique, although why you'd take such great pains to rehab a unit and then throw in ugly white stock cabinetry is a bit of a mystery. But this is just a rental, so no need to fret over that particular mistake. The unit has a patio, a dishwasher, and an en suite off the master. Minus: shared basement laundry. Huge plus: off-street parking in the building's large back lot.
