Last week, we saw a fab Grosse Pointe Farms home restored to its Art Deco beauty. Now we have a house here in Detroit that’s not just gone through a renovation, but it’s also received an Art Deco makeover. It’s not for everyone, but it’s a breath of fresh air after seeing so many renovations that look alike. The 1935 house is coming in just under 2,000 square feet, and it’s asking $279,000.
To be clear, this is a high listing price for the neighborhood. We’d expect to find a price like this across Livernois in the University District. But we can’t predict Detroit real estate, so here we are.
This house has bold pops of color throughout, in the fixtures, furniture, and wallpaper. A deep red and gold wall runs through the foyer and in the upstairs hallway, while other rooms have more muted, but fun patterns (leopard print accents in the dining room—yes!). Original railings and leaded glass details are scattered through the house, blended with more modern light fixtures. A basement bar offers more entertaining space, along with a backyard and screened-in porches. This house is just fun. It has three bedrooms, one full and two half baths, and it’s located a few blocks away from Livernois. It’s listed through Marissa Kresch at Downtown Realty.
