A stunning home just went up for sale in one of Detroit’s great neighborhoods, Indian Village. The 3,400-square-foot residence on Iroquois Street is listed with Erica Collica of Max Brook Realtors for $479,000.

Designed in 1921 by architect William H. Vollmer—who did a number of other homes and buildings in Detroit—it has a unique brick exterior with an arched entryway, asymmetrical rooflines, and a lovely covered porch.

There might be even more to like inside the four-bedroom home. The entryways between rooms are exceptionally large, giving the space an open feel. The molding, hardwood floors, and tiles in the kitchen, sunroom, bathrooms all seem to be in exceptional shape.

Speaking of that sunroom, it’s definitely one of the home’s showpieces. We kind of have a thing for sunrooms at Curbed, but this one feels so inviting, and we especially like the tile shelf by the windows.

The other rooms aren’t too shabby either. The reading room has gorgeous wood built-in shelves; the master bathroom has a spacious marble shower; and the furnished third floor (with more built-in cabinets) is great for hosting.

Overall, the home shouldn’t require much work at all. According to the realtor, the owners updated it in 2015 and replaced the roof, furnace, hot water heater, and plumbing.

Foyer has dark brown hardwood floors and wide swinging-door entryway that leads to the dining room.
The reading room has an almost wall-length built-in shelves stacked with books. The walls are painted blue and there’s a stained-glass light fixture on the ceiling.
The sunroom has a tiled floor, reclaimed table in the middle, shelving for plants, and windows spanning an entire wall. There’s potted plants throughout.
Modern kitchen with beige tiles and granite countertop. The ceiling is white and cabinets black.
The master bathroom has a large shower and marble-tiled floor.
The third floor has a low ceiling and hardwood floors. The room is empty except for a pool table in the middle.
