Just in time for Opening Day (next week!!!), we have a listing steeped in Tigers history. This Boston-Edison mansion was built in 1906 and from 1910-35, owned by Frank Navin, owner of the Detroit Tigers from 1908-35 and namesake of Navin Field. We can just imagine the conversations that took place on this big front porch or by the fireplace inside. The 4,000-square-foot home is listing for $395,000. Perhaps one of the current Tigers might be interested?

We’ll get to the rest of the house, but first, FYI, there’s a room-sized vault in the basement.

The house is located on Longfellow, just off Woodward. It has huge open rooms on the first floor, with big wood beams, built-in surrounding the fireplace, and bay windows everywhere. There’s a big foyer leading to a grand staircase leading to a second floor with five bedrooms. The kitchen has an attached butler’s pantry. A big backyard leads to a two-car garage with alley access. Could this house use some work? Sure. But there’s a lot of good stuff here, for both home and baseball fans alike. It’s listed through Keith Weber at RE/MAX Partners.
