Just take a look at the “before” photos

We’re continually amazed by the number of Detroit homes that were once in rough shape, maybe near demolition, but ultimately restored. We’ve seen examples like this all over town (see: Woodbridge, East Village, northwest Detroit).

Another impressive rehab just completed in the West Village and hit the market for $409,900.

When it was bought in October last year, photos show collapsing front steps, peeling facade and window frames, water-damaged ceiling and floors, and other signs of deterioration.

After a year-long renovation, the four-bedroom, 2,200-square-foot home has come back to life. The owners kept and restored what they could, including the original windows, French doors, and coffered ceilings. But otherwise, the home from 1913 is pretty much brand new on the inside, from the custom-built fireplace mantel to the cabinets in the kitchen and pantry, and the bathroom with soaking tub and walk-in shower.

There’s also a new roof, electrical and plumbing systems, ductwork, and more. Check out the photos below to see for yourself.

1778 Seyburn Street is listed with Nika Jusufi of Max Broock Realtors for $409,900.
