This fascinating home is equal parts Tudor and colonial

We’re not quite sure how to describe this fascinating home in North Rosedale Park that’s part Tudor, part colonial. Built in 1930, it’s been owned by a curator for the Detroit Institute of Arts and former Detroit Tiger Alex Johnson.

Much of the three-bedroom, 2,443-square foot home has been renovated or restored. There’s new hardwood floors in the living room, dining room, and library. The kitchen was, according to the realtor, “gutted to the steel supports,” and now has a modern look and appliances.

There’s a lot to love about it, such as the details in the crown molding, stained-glass crests on the windows, cedar closet in the master bedroom, and sun room, to name a few.

Also check out the Pewabic-style tiles, which have been generously placed throughout the house. There’s tiles in the hallway, on the stairs, in the foyer, in the bathroom (which contrast nicely with the color choices for the tubs and sinks).

For such a unique, move-in ready home in a solid neighborhood, it’s also selling at a reasonable price. 18425 Bretton Drive is listed through Realty Executives Home Towne for $309,900.
