An old home in Corktown, Detroit’s oldest neighborhood, just went up for sale.

The Victorian, built in 1901, and has a couple of features emblematic of the style like turrets, bay windows, and a covered side porch. We’re less crazy, however, about the white vinyl siding that covers the entirety of the exterior.

But inside the 2,100-square-foot, four-bedroom home, there’s a lot of nicely refinished wood on the molding, staircase, and hardwood floors. In the foyer, you’re greeted to a lot of this warmth, as well as french doors that lead to the dining room, which has an impressive blue-tiled fireplace with a mantel also made of wood.

The home got a major remodel in 2015 (including a new roof). The three full bathrooms have new tiles on the floors and showers, as well as new sinks and hardware. The kitchen looks like it was mostly updated prior to this recent round of work, and has laminate countertops and imitation wood cabinets. There’s also a furnished attic space.

The home on 11th Street is listed with O’Connor Real Estate for $374,900.
