We see a lot of renovations here — many average flips, too many sub-par flips, some great restorations. We kind of love this new listing in Boston-Edison, located on Chicago Boulevard just west of the Lodge. The owners bought it for $85,000 in 2014 and undertook a big renovation, turning the master bedroom into a full suite with two walk-in closets. The house is a knockout and listing for $348,000.
The house is 3,422 square feet, with four bedrooms, two and a half baths, a sun room, and a finished room upstairs that could be used in a variety of ways. Built-ins surround the fireplace in the living room, with soaring beams overhead. The kitchen and bathrooms were finished beautifully (not an awkward kitchen for once).
This renovated home just recently sold for $340,000, making it the highest sale on that side of the Lodge in years ... will this one go over that price? It’s listed through Austin Black II at City Living Detroit.
