Right in the middle of the oldest neighborhood in Detroit

1801 Leverette St Michelle & Chris Gerard

This 116-year-old home in Corktown has quite a few great things going for it. First, its location is pretty coveted. Located a few blocks from Michigan Avenue, between Rosa Parks and Trumbull, it’s walkable to many Corktown hot spots. It also has a driveway (rare with these old homes), plus a three car garage. It also has quite a few charming original details. It could use a some cosmetic upgrades, though. It’s listing for $315,000.

There are plenty of original details on the main floor. The kitchen is functional, but dated, as are the bathrooms. Carpeting covers much of the house. But it could be fun to hopefully unearth some hardwood flooring under there! The house has four bedrooms, two bathrooms, a fenced yard, and laundry on the first floor. It’s being sold through O’Connor Realty. Take a look around and tell us what upgrades you might do to this house.
