    This house was a pleasant surprise….the inside has a ton of potential. I wasn’t quite sure what to make of the realtor’s description of “2.1” baths. 🙂

      .1 bath for garden gnomes. 😉

      MLS makes us put .1 for half baths because if there are two full and two half baths and it used .5 for half baths it would say three full instead of 2.2 when the data is entered and syndicated, if that makes sense.

        Ahh…thank you for the education. Seems a quirky way to circumvent a feature that MLS could easily fixed with a good programmer. Thanks!

    Detroit abounds with houses like this.

    I hope the new owners restore the distinctive steel windows rather than replace them. Here’s a good source:


    LOVE the bathrooms. LOVE all the late 1930s qualities.

    Does anyone know what is that countertop insert above the dishwasher?

    My dream a cedar closet.

    Wow those bathrooms are amazing as is the stained glass. I have never been to Detroit but I have a great fondness for that city somehow.

  7. Valerie Auberry says: 7 comments

    I love the fixtures, left furniture and nicnacks from the 70’s!!! I would keep them all. The bathrooms are outstanding. This could be great again.

    Wow, this is a fantastic house. I could have a field day.

    It’s a beautiful home. It’s such a shame about the crumbling of Detroit. In it’s prime it had architecture, public and private, that was some of the best in history. You can still look at homes and other buildings that are in a near rubble condition and still see how beautiful they were. Detroit was a very planned city. That usually doesn’t work out. However the ones who planned Detroit did it with a loving and talented eye. It worked out well.

    Our family home from 1925 – 2004 was near 7 Mile and Woodward. It was my grandparents till my brother took it over in 1980. I always dreamed of one day buying and renovating it. (It was sold at tax auction for $700 but buyers just stole the bricks off the house, etc). I went on Google Earth to look at it as I frequently do and it was gone. Demolished by the city. My brother took such good care of that house. To see it being picked apart to use on other homes, than demolished tore me up. Rest in Peace 170/172 W.Nevada. Always in our hearts.

    The area where this house is is coming back beautifully. They have really done an amazing job, and this house shows how impressive an area it is. Professionals and artists are moving there from the suburbs, and making it a wonderful family community.
    This house is gorgeous and the tile work is incredible. I love it!! I wish I could afford to remodel it bc I am looking for a home in that area. Well, the Woodward Corridor.

      I was born over on Oak Drive! Grandparents lived on Birchcrest. Drove around the area last year and neighborhood looked great. Every end-of-block house seemed to have those cool front doors angled to the corner.

        I love the architecture in Detroit. I know those doors and they are so cool. I used to live in the 6 story blonde brick building at State Fair and Woodward in the late 80’s. The inside was absolutely gorgeous. Marble foyer, cage elevator, adorable apartments. The little details everywhere were so unique.

    What a charming wonderful house! Oh I pray someone who appreciates all it’s great vintage features from various eras gets this one. I would just employ a little elbow grease and leave it pretty much alone!

    Beautiful. Needs no cosmetic work except maybe protecting those worn spots on the wood floors. Oh and getting rid of those weird vertical plastic slats on the windows. Its perfect. I love the daisies in the kitchen and the bathrooms are wonderful!
