In Boston Edison, this historic home five-bedroom, six-bathroom home offers a blend of new and old with notable architectural touches including art glass windows, wood trim, a gas-burning fireplace, a formal dining area, sunroom, and hardwood floors throughout.

Like its Dutch Colonial neighbor down the street, the home at 1969 W. Boston Boulevard was constructed in 1921. During their five-year stay, the most recent owners discovered several historic artifacts including an old pay stub from Ford Motor Company that paid $53.60 for 32 hours of work.

The home has a relatively open floor plan and a master suite with an attached bathroom and walk-in closet—rare features for older residences. The kitchen and bathrooms have been updated and the detached three-car garage has a new roof.

“It’s a great house with a lot of the original details,” listing agent Nika Jusufi told Curbed Detroit. “A lot of rehabbers would have ripped out the interiors.” Max Broock Realtors listed the 4,000-square-foot property with an asking price of $409,000.
