Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, where we look at different homes for sale around the city listed in a certain price range. This week, we’re hitting the road and seeing what’s for sale in some of Detroit’s suburbs. For the price of a historic home in Detroit, we might find a condo in Royal Oak. This week, we’re looking at homes within $15,000 of our budget: $350,000.
We saw this renovated Boston-Edison home back in November. It’s 2,710 square feet, with four bedrooms, three full and two half baths, a fireplace in the living room, a new kitchen, and a backyard. It sits west of the Lodge, a quick drive to downtown, Midtown, and many parts of the city. It’s now listed at $365,000.
This Farmington Hills contemporary has a wide variety of flooring and wallpaper throughout its 3,791 square feet. It also has a conversation pit, skylights, chandeliers, a big fireplace in the family room, and some of the wildest bathrooms we’ve seen.It also sits on a lovely wooded lot. It comes in right on budget at $350,000.
Over in Grosse Pointe Woods, here’s a three bedroom, two and a half bath brick home that’s been redone in the past few years. It comes in at 1,900 square feet and includes a finished basement. It’s located on the east side, near Lake St. Clair and many shops and restaurants in the Grosse Pointe. It’s coming in at $340,000.
Up in Ferndale, this recently renovated and charming house is 2,190 square feet, with stone fireplaces, a new kitchen, four bedrooms, and three baths. It’s located within walking distance from downtown Ferndale and it’s listed for $355,000.
If Royal Oak is more your speed, this 1,200-square-foot loft is located right downtown. It has a weird industrial/’80s vibe, with exposed brick, curved walls, exposed duct work, and a balcony overlooking the city. Walk to all downtown Royal Oak clubs and restaurants from here. It’s listing for $359,900, with $417 a month in HOA fees.
