    The abundant scroll-sawn ornament is captivating… great original details inside and out!

        It’s nice that the detailing in the gable end of the roof of the front porch (which appears to be a fairly recent replacement/reconstruction) was re-created. It is a bit under-scaled, but I was impressed that the scroll-sawn work was recognized as being special enough to re-create. You can see the “ghost” of the original porch on the brick; it was a tad larger than the replacement. Its balustrade appears to be original, thankfully. The curvy work below the 2nd floor stair balustrade recalls the Federal period and the stair brackets themselves are highly original… this is really nice stuff!

    Neat details on the staircase’ stringer, and I like the pendant light fixture, a lot. And rdg. the house’s description… one letter can make a bit of a difference – those half a dozen scones must be mighty stale by now. 😉

    Reminds me of the house from Fight Club, minus Brad Pitt as the owner.

    Love the outside. It’s sad to see the neighborhood though. So many empty lots where a lot of similar homes once stood.

    There was a time when the asking price would buy an entire block of (habitable) homes in Detroit but thankfully in more recent years some old neighborhoods are making a strong comeback. This house has a lot of potential and retains most of the original period details. A sensitive restoration is warranted for this surprisingly well preserved home. If Detroit can have a renaissance and a future, there’s hope for many other old cities in decline. All it takes is enough caring people to make a difference. Thanks for sharing this encouraging example.

    Is the price a bit high for a home, no matter how lovely, and this one is lovely, in this particular neighborhood?

    What is sad is the asking price because no one will purchase the property at or near the asking price because restoration costs will exceed the value.
