Check out these affordable homes in one of Detroit’s most prestigious neighborhoods

Boston-Edison is one of Detroit’s most prestigious neighborhoods. The centrally located historic district contains the grand mansion of former Detroit luminaries like S. S. Kresge, Berry Gordy, and James Couzens.

But there’s over 400 homes in the neighborhood, many of which can be gotten for a surprisingly affordable price—and you won’t have to do any renovations either. Here are five homes in Boston-Edison that can be bought for under $300,000.


Where: 2545 W Boston Boulevard
Specs: 2,970 square feet, five bedrooms, three bathrooms
Selling points: The brick home has Tudor elements on its lovely facade. Inside it’s gotten a big renovation—new floors and what the listing describes as a “masterpiece” kitchen—while retaining original features like the tiled foyer and wood fireplace.
Asking price: $279,900
Selling Agent: Marta Kopania of Red Carpet Premier
