When looking at Detroit neighborhoods, Corktown has an awful lot going for it. The quaint neighborhood is the oldest in Detroit, with a sweet variety of homes, rowhouses, and a bustling commercial corridor. It’s close to downtown and the Detroit River. There’s an active neighborhood association. The price to own in this neighborhood has risen substantially in the last few years.
Here we have a gorgeous home, an ideal Corktown house, some might say. The 1900 Victorian has crazy curb appeal, a beautifully landscaped backyard, and it’s located just a couple blocks off Michigan Avenue. Inside, it’s been renovated with modern, chic updates. The downstairs living spaces are fairly open, and the midcentury modern staging certainly helps. The house has four bedrooms, two baths, and it’s listing for a whopping $479,000, or $264 per square foot. It’s a lot—over $100K more than any single-family house that’s sold in the neighborhood lately (lofts go for much more). Worth it? You be the judge.
