Here at Curbed Detroit, we often showcase some of the most opulent, historic, and gorgeous for-sale homes in the city. But we also like to feature some of the more affordable, modest options.
Case in point: this cute 1940s bungalow at 7242 Stahelin Avenue in Warrendale, which just listed for $45,000 through Moving the Mitten Real Estate.
The three-bedroom, one-and-a-half bathroom home is just over 1,000 square feet and move-in ready. We love the facade, which has some attractive brick columns around the porch and two dormer windows.
The front door leads into the living room, which flows into the kitchen. There’s a kind of pass through that also leads to the breakfast nook and a view of the backyard.
The realtor says the house got a minor update in 2014 (when it was last bought for $5,000) that included new kitchen cabinets and appliances, as well as a new upstairs bathroom, furnace, and paint job. The detached two-car garage, which is accessible from the alley, will need some new siding on it.
Though the house a solid 20 minutes away from downtown, it’s right next to the Southfield Freeway and Rouge Park, which we think is a severely underrated asset in the city—it could be part of someone’s regular biking or walking route.
