Just look at these “before” photos

A few weeks ago we profiled Woodbridge Neighborhood Development (WND), a nonprofit developer working on a number of local projects. One was a home rehab, part of a program to fund home repair grants for needy residents.

Well, that home just went up for sale, and it’s pretty darn impressive. It’s listed for $399,900.

What makes the rehab so astounding is that the home was saved at all. Bought from the Detroit Land Bank, the home from 1900 had been abandoned for some time. Its wood siding was falling off and the entire interior had to be gutted.

There’s a grassy yard with wood fencing around it. The back of the house has blue siding and a gabled roof.

The transformation complete, it’s now a move-in ready 2,058-square-foot beauty. And WND even managed to save much of the wood molding around the door frames.

The rebuilt, three-bedroom interior was tastefully done. The kitchen has butcher block and quartz countertops, plus an island with seating and black stainless steel appliances. It opens up to the living room, where there’s a nice pocket door leading to the dining room. A restored wood-burning fireplace is in little sitting room. The two full bathrooms are quite nice as well and have walk-in showers.

There’s also a really unique mudroom leading to the backyard with hangers, shelving, and a dog bath.

For the rehab, Virtuoso Design+Build was the project architect, Polymath Development was the general contractor and Meredith Roe with Concerto did the interior design.

4852 Avery Street is listed with Lauren Bruyninga of O’Connor Real Estate for $399,900.
