Winter has a freezing grasp on the Detroit real estate market right now, and listings have been slimmer than usual lately. So the sight of this reasonable, move-in ready, charming University District home was like a breath of fresh (warmer) air. Prices have generally been much higher in this desirable neighborhood in the past year and a half. This new listing on a corner lot is coming in at 2,850 square feet, with four bedrooms and character. The price? $299,900.
We’re loving the wood-panelled library, leaded glass windows, archways, the plaster work, and the hardwood floors. The kitchen has been updated, but also includes some of the old tiling. The jury’s out on that one. Also find a spacious dining room, breakfast nook, and a warm fireplace in the living room. The bathrooms have original tiling and the bedrooms all have ceiling fans. The finished basement adds more living space to the home. All in all, seems like a pretty good house for the price. Here’s a look around.
