Because of restrictions placed on selling during the coronavirus pandemic, not many homes are hitting the market in Detroit these days. But one in Indian Village that recently listed is a real charmer.
The craftsman cottage on Seminole Street was designed in 1913 by active local firm Varney & Winter. The brick and stucco exterior has some gorgeous green-painted eaves above the porch and a dormer window with cedar shake.
The craftsman elements really come alive in the 2,376-square-foot, five-bedroom interior. For example, wood enriches every facet of the living room: the coffered ceiling, trim, floors, fireplace mantel, and built-in shelves. The dining room has even more batten and crown molding. And the sunroom has a tile floor with decorative inlay tiles.
There’s also a finished third floor, detached two-car garage, and a sizable yard with a little stone patio.
Other Indian Village homes may be bigger or more opulent, but few are so delightful. 2444 Seminole Street is listed for $399,000 with Erica Collica of Max Broock Realtors.
