One of the most recognizable homes just east of Eastern Market is now available to own. 2126 Pierce has quite the backstory and has been used as an Airbnb since last fall. It brings in about $3,000 a month from that, so it could be a good option for the new owner. The listing price may be asking a lot for the neighborhood itself, but nearby Eastern Market lofts command twice this price. The 800-square-foot, two story home is asking $189,000.
It’s located a few blocks from Eastern Market and the Dequindre Cut, mostly surrounded by urban prairie. The house was built by Cranbrook students in 2007 and the house went through quite a few owners during the following years. Artist Beau Stanton painted the standout mural on the house in 2015. The compact home has a living space downstairs, with bed and bath upstairs. It’s listed through Darin McLeskey at Denovo Real Estate.
