This new listing in Southwest Detroit has the original characteristics we covet in these old homes, along with a design flair from artistic owners. The 118-year-old house is listing for $110,000.
The three-bedroom house has original woodwork—with its original stain—in the stairway and in the trim. Bold statement wallpaper lines the downstairs and runs up into the stairwell. Archways connect the main living rooms, with a small cove in the dining room. A retro kitchen adds more character. In addition to the second floor bedrooms, find more space for an office, storage, or sitting area on the third level. The house also has a basement for storage. It’s close to Clark Park and the businesses and restaurants along West Vernor, but also right next to the freeway. It’s listed through Randall Fogelman at O’Connor Real Estate.
