For those looking to buy in the city, but don’t want a huge house or a condo, this new Woodbridge listing might be a good fit. It’s an old house—built in 1910—with some character still in-tact. It’s smaller than most at only 1,050 square feet, and it has updated mechanicals and finishings. The price? $299,000.
Inside, find an updated kitchen with butcher block counters, a peninsula for extra storage and counter space, new lighting fixtures, and new appliances. The house has dark wood trim, light wood floors, a dramatic staircase, two bedrooms, one and a half baths, and a basement for storage. Outside, find a small porch out front and an alley-adjacent yard that needs landscaping out back. The house also has a new roof and systems. It’s located close to Grand River Avenue, Midtown, Wayne State University, Corktown, many freeways, and downtown, and it’s listed through O’Connor Real Estate.
