Welcome to this week’s installment of Curbed Comparisons, where we explore what you can buy for a certain dollar amount in various Detroit neighborhoods. This week we’re looking at home sales at or around $250,000.
A 1,008-square-foot detached carriage house on Beaubien Street is listed through Hadi Hamka at M1 Realty, Inc for $250,000. This one-bedroom loft has an eye-catching brick exterior with purple and green painted on the garage doors and wood. It’s got a relatively simple floor plan with a connected living room and kitchen leading straight into the master bedroom. There’s two small balconies and an attached one-car garage.
A completely remodeled, 2,136-square-foot home duplex on Josephine Street is listed through RE/MAX Vision for $249,900. This 1914 home, according to the listing, was torn down to the studs and has new floors, kitchens, bathrooms, and more. In addition to having rental potential, the two adjacent lots are owned by the Detroit Land Bank and could be bought to create a huge property or another development opportunity.
Atkinson Street Historic District
A 2,350-square-foot home on Atkinson Street is listed through PREP Realty for $240,000. Built in 1919, the four-bedroom Colonial has an attractive brick exterior and first-floor bay windows. It’s been updated recently and has a new furnace, modern finishes, refinished floors, and more. There’s also a detached two-car garage and a deck in the backyard.
Right around the corner on Longfellow Street, a 1,800-square-foot home is listed through Downtown Realty for $249,975. This Colonial from 1913 has some classic features, including a stucco first-floor exterior, coffered ceiling and fireplace in the living room, and great wood trim throughout. The four-bedroom home also a nice deck and sizable backyard.
La Salle Gardens
A nearly 3,000-square-foot, six-bedroom home on Lothrop Street just got a slight price reduction and is now listed through O’Connor Real Estate for $265,000. It’s gotten a lot of updates recently, including refinished hardwood floors, new furnace, plumbing, and more. But this impressive brick home from 1914 still needs a little more work, as it’s missing a ceiling in the kitchen (though the den has a gorgeous one that’s coffered). Purchase price also comes with an adjacent vacant lot.
