This cute 113-year-old house in Southwest Detroit has a lot of the character we love about old houses in this neighborhood—in-tact woodwork, hardwood floors, built-ins, pocket doors, and a clawfoot tub. It also has plenty of outdoor space: the spacious backyard includes a side lot. The price? $185,000.

Also find inside three-to-four bedrooms, two baths, a bright kitchen with a lot of storage, an unfinished basement, a handsome staircase, and chandeliers in the entry and dining room. The backyard is expansive, with a small deck, mature trees, and a garage. Its location puts it close to West Vernor, Clark Park, the restaurants in Mexicantown, and just down the street from the train station and Corktown. Simply, it’s a lovely old house with character in a vibrant neighborhood for under $200K. It’s listed through Bill Swanson at O’Connor Real Estate.
