The Park Shelton is one of those grand old Detroit residential buildings, designed at a time when Detroit was booming. It sits across the street from the Detroit Institute of Arts, the Detroit Historical Museum, and kitty corner from the main branch of the library. The roof and some condos offer lovely views looking toward downtown.
This newer listing has two bedrooms, two baths, a striking fireplace in the living room, and those views. It’s listing for $415,000.
The owner tells us that the faux fireplace has original Majolica tiles lining it, and they were in beautiful shape once they stripped the paint off. It makes for a lovely and unique focal point in the living room, which also has detailed crown molding. Also find a galley kitchen, hardwood floors, walk-in closets, and large windows. HOA fees run high at $825 per month, but include utilities, parking, a fitness center, 24-hour security, and access to the rooftop deck. The Park Shelton is close to Wayne State, the College for Creative Studies, the Fisher Building, the Detroit Medical Center, and the Qline. It’s listed through Cathy Champion at Bolton-Johnston Associates.
