100-year-old North End home needs work, asks $165K

New, 4 comments

The price of a fixer upper can vary greatly around and within Detroit neighborhoods. This one could be banking on its potential uses. It’s a big one -- 4,000 square feet -- and located a block off Woodward in the North End, with views of the Fisher Building. It needs all the work it can get and could be used as a two-family home or, as the listing suggests, a bed and breakfast. It’s listing for $165,000.

The listing states that the home has ten bedrooms total and the house still has many of its original fixtures and wood trim. There’s also a somewhat creepy, potentially interesting basement with a fireplace and a bar, plus an open attic area. The renovation isn’t for the faint of heart; it looks like it’s been a while since anyone cared for it. It seems like a project for someone who wants to turn this into something special. We’re still wondering about the price, though, considering the money that would need to go into it. Interested? The listing has dozens of photos.
