The historic Boston-Edison neighborhood has over 900 homes built in Detroit’s booming heyday—between 1905 and 1925. Many of these houses seem larger than life, with big front lawns along the wide, tree-lined boulevards. This new listing sits just west of the Lodge on Chicago Boulevard and comparatively, it’s smaller than many of its neighbors. Of course, not everyone needs a big house, and the smaller space can keep heating and cooling bills down (the new updates help with that, too). This brick home comes in at 1,800 square feet and it has luxurious upgrades for its new owner. The price? $399,900, or $222 per square foot.
The house is the first for B-E Beautiful Designs, who plans on renovating more homes in the neighborhood. Inside, find a gorgeous fireplace in the living room, a formal dining room, a sun room, a completely remodeled kitchen, three bedrooms, a third floor with space for a desk or play area, and a partially finished basement. Outside, a new deck has been built, plus a patio with a fireplace. It’s simply a great house in one of Detroit’s most beautiful neighborhoods. It’s listed through Toni Jennings at Abode Detroit.
