There’s a lot to like about the Green Acres neighborhood on the northern border of Detroit. It’s close to shopping amenities like Meijer, the Avenue of Fashion, and retail in Ferndale. The neighborhood sits close to historic enclaves like Sherwood Forest, Palmer Woods, and the University District, but offers more modest homes with attractive price tags. This new listing has an updated kitchen, character, and outdoor space. With only two bedrooms, it might be a good choice for a starter home. The price? $159,900.
The living room has a warm fireplace and an archway connecting to the dining room/kitchen combo. The eating area has stainless steel appliances, a grey subway tile back splash, and a modern chandelier over the dining room table. Find two bedrooms upstairs, an updated bathroom, room for extra living space in the basement—plus a full bath, and a three-seasons room that leads to the backyard. Sure, a new fence would do wonders for the property, but all together, it’s a nice house in a great neighborhood. It’s listed through Jim Shaffer and Associates.
