The diamond window pattern is something you don’t see often in Detroit

With its symmetrical design, block glass windows, and sharp brick exterior, this home in East English Village is pretty distinct from the front. It’s even more distinct in the back.

It’s also on the market, and listed for $158,900.

The home was bought in 2013 by a Dutch investor, according to the realtor, and used as a rental property for several years. Most recently, it’s been renovated to sell.

Among the many upgrades—which include a new garage roof, sidings, furnace, and plumbing—the owner also remodeled the kitchen. It’s now larger and more open, with new appliances and a passthrough to the dining room.

But the most notable change is the addition at the rear of the house. Diamond-shaped windows were built into the expansion, which turned a former small room into a master suite complete with walk-in closet and bathroom. There’s also a downstairs lounge room that look out to the backyard through large windows.

The extra space puts the home at just over 2,000 square feet. There’s four bedrooms total and a detached two-car garage.

4877 Bishop Street is listed with Justin Fontenelle of Trust Realty LLC for $158,900.
