5 breathtaking Detroit homes still on the market

New, 1 comment

Take another look at these stunning homes in neighborhoods like Indian Village, Arden Park, and Woodbridge

Due to the coronavirus outbreak and the constraints of showing homes, there’s been considerably less activity in the housing market in the last couple weeks. While fewer homes have gone up for sale, it’s also a great time to revisit some spectacular homes still on the market.

Today we’ll be showcasing homes that have been featured here before, including a foursquare in Indian Village, two in the Boston-Edison area, a Tudor Revival in Sherwood Forest, and a Victorian in Woodbridge.

We call this 100-year-old home “flawless” when we first featured it. That may have been a little bit of an overstatement, but it’s undeniably gorgeous.

The Arden Park home has a gorgeous exterior with brick work at the base, followed by white stucco, followed by a slate roof. Around back, you’ll find a nice backyard with pavers leading to a detached three-car garage and two-bedroom carriage house. There’s just as much to admire in the 3,761-square-foot interior.

We first featured 262 E. Boston Boulevard in December 2019 when it was listed for $699,900. Since, it’s gone all the way down to $549,900.

On the outside, this home on Canterbury Street looks like a classic and charming Tudor. But the 4,320-square-foot interior is filled with vibrant color choices, quirky prints, and surprising tile inlays. It’s not all eye-catching decorations though and the photos are definitely worth checking out.

This home first hit the market in November 2019. It’s gotten a modest price drop and is now for sale for $485,000.

Architect C. Howard Crane is best known for his theater palaces like Orchestra Hall and the Fox Theatre. But he also designed a handful of homes, including this beauty from the 1910s.

The 4,251-square-foot American foursquare has a tasteful color scheme on the exterior and an impressively maintained interior. It’s one of our favorites and was included amongst our choices for the best homes of 2019.

It’s still listed for $625,000, despite being on the market since October 2019.

Even among the stately Victorians in Woodbridge, this home stands out. It has wonderful aged brick and vines growing on its facade, arched windows, stone lintels, and a high-pitched hipped roof that resembles a church steeple. The 3,519-square-foot, five-bedroom home has also gotten a restoration that added some modern touches, but faithfully kept much of its character.

It recently hit the market and is still listed for $510,000.

The “Ice House” is still for sale. Back in 2015, this lovely Tudor Revival from 1922 became famous for all the wrong reasons—burst pipes caused water to gush from the second-story window and form a kind of ice waterfall.

After a massive rehab, the home is in solid shape. The beautiful 4,500-square-foot home has exposed wood framing, a slate roof, and wraparound porch. The showpiece is the fountain room with its Pewabic-tile floor.

2215 W. Boston Boulevard first listed in July last year for $699,995—now it’s going for $649,995.
