Located on the corner of Third and Edison across from Voigt Park, this 1913 home is slightly hidden by trees from the street. Its yard features lush landscaping and outdoor space. Inside, the Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired home has been restored over many years, including the woodwork. You can tell the owners put a lot of care into this house. The 3,500-square foot home is listing for $399,900.

The home was built in 1913 for Dr. William A Evans, a radiologist at Harper Hospital and Detroit General Hospital in the early 1900s. He went on become the President of the Detroit Public Health Board in the 1920s. The home was featured in American Bungalow Magazine in Winter/Spring 2012.

The home has six bedrooms, including two on the third floor. The kitchen has a butler’s pantry with a lot of storage, and the nearby maid’s quarters have been turned into a breakfast nook. The master suite has a fireplace, large closet, and bathroom, and the bathrooms keep with the vintage look with their tiling. The house itself has charm, built-in storage, and plenty of light, while the outside is like an oasis. It’s listed through Sean Ninness at Jeff Glover & Associates Realtors & Keller Williams Realty.
