Our favorite couple doing designer renovations of homes in northwest Detroit have struck again. These two continually impress us with their ability to revive small neighborhood homes, add tasteful touches, and sell them at affordable prices.
Their latest one on Monica Street a few blocks west of Livernois Avenue listed for just $79,900.
Bought through the Detroit Land Bank Authority’s Own It Now program for $1,500, the home was previously sad and boarded up. Now, it has attractive tan siding and wood accents to give it a rustic look. There’s also some modest fencing to create a semi-private porch and slightly insulate it from potential noise on 8 Mile Road.
Inside, the 810-square-foot, two-bedroom home has been smartly renovated.
The new kitchen comes with black cabinets and a tiled backsplash that contrasts nicely with the chevron-patterned butcher block countertops. The master bedroom has green-painted walls and a reflective ceiling light fixture. The living room is small, but cozy and nicely furnished.
As with all their sales, the same vintage furniture used for staging can be added with purchase of the home for an additional $2,500. There’s also a driveway leading to a detached one-car garage.
Take a look at the photos below to see for yourself. 20525 Monica Street is listed with Ashley Mann of Hall & Hunter-Birmingham for $79,900.
