Classic exterior, modern interior

Want to live amongst the tree-lined homes and mansions in Indian Village but aren’t looking to buy? A pretty unique opportunity is out there.

The owners of this historic home on Burns Street have put it up for rent. Though it’s not cheap—to be a tenant here you’ll have to fork over $6,900 a month. But you will get something special.

Designed in 1921 by Herman & Simons, who built a number of homes in the neighborhood, the Colonial Revival has a classic brick exterior with black shutters on the second-story windows and two dormers.

We believe the home had been abandoned for many years, which explains why the 3,000-square-foot interior has gotten a complete modern remodel. The living room has en vogue chevron-patterned floors, recessed lighting, and a custom marble wood-burning fireplace. The kitchen has marble countertops and subway tile backsplash. A little butler’s pantry comes with an almost industrial-sized fridge and built-in stainless steel shelves. An enormous, eye-shaped light fixture hovers in the dining room. The all new master bathroom has marble tiled floor and countertops, as well as heated towel racks—you get the idea.

Also of note, the home also comes with a rebuilt solarium with gorgeous original floor tiles, automated gated entry, and finished basement.

At five bedrooms, there’s lots of space to spread out. 2955 Burns Street is listed with Jason Hill of Historic Realty Detroit for $6,900 a month.
