Practically every home in Arden Park is unique, historic, and full of incredible details. So we shouldn’t be surprised to find another stunner that’s on the market for $499,000.

Built in 1914, the home at the corner of John R Street and Arden Park Boulevard was designed by local architect Hans Gehrke for well-known jeweler Robert C. Traub. It was even featured in the magazine House Beautiful around the time it was completed. Sadly it underwent years of neglect and, according to the owner, ended up on the city’s demolition list before being bought in 2012 through a Wayne County auction.

We’re grateful that the 5,300-square-foot, seven-bedroom home and its many Arts and Crafts details have been saved. Take a look at the impressive foyer with its wood paneling and coffered ceilings. Or the living room, which has an amazing fireplace lined with yellow-, brown-, and gold-glazed Pewabic tiles.

New owners may, however, want to update the kitchen with new countertops and appliances.

Take a look at the photos and see for yourself. 211 Arden Park Boulevard is listed with Evan Weber of Max Broock Realtors for $499,000.

All the walls in the foyer have rectangular wood panels. The ceiling has coffered wood and there’s a large rug mostly covering the floor.
