An Indian Village home that’s been on the market for a couple months just got a price reduction of $44,000. It’s now listed through Max Broock Realtors for $475,000.

The home at 2405 Burns Street was built in 1914 by Donaldson and Meier, the architectural firm responsible for such iconic Detroit buildings as the Most Holy Redeemer Church, David Stott Building, and Penobscot Building.

This seven-bedroom, 4,217-square-foot home was built to last and is still in solid shape over a century later. There’s tons of original details, including the coffered ceilings, chandeliers, fireplaces, Terrazzo tiles, window shutters, French doors, and more.

We love the the enclosed patio and impressive built-in cabinets in the show-stopping living room. Each of the three-and-a-half bathrooms have their own distinct and impressive features. There’s also a detached three-car garage.

The kitchen, however, could use an update. During its most recent renovation, laminate countertops and a gray-tiled floor was installed that’s out of character with the historical charm of the rest of the house.

Also worth nothing, the home is in a Neighborhood Enterprise Zone, meaning the owner would get a significant discount on property taxes.
