This new listing in Romeo could be one of the oldest homes we’ve seen here on Curbed Detroit, and one of the oldest in the village of Romeo. It was either built in 1839 or 1840 and it’s in remarkably good condition. There aren’t too many examples of this early Greek Revival style left in the state. The Minot Lane house includes a garage with a separate living space that could be renovated. The property is listing for $324,000.

According to listing agent Ron Clem, the current owner have restored the mechanicals, woodwork, floors, and kitchen in the past eight years. The fireplace is beautiful, but at this point decorative. Much of the character is still intact, with modern conveniences in the kitchen and bathrooms. The carriage house was built in 1829 and moved to the property in 1986, when the garage addition was built. It even has a cute white picket fence. It’s rare to see a property this old in this condition. The property sits on a half acre corner lot and it’s listed through Ron Clem at Hall & Hunter Birmingham.
