    This house has an encouraging amount of original period details left. Like surrounding houses, it has surely seen better times but if reports about Detroit’s upswing are to be believed, this house could be a good restoration candidate. The larger neighborhood has vacant lots and gaps but the immediate area appears to be fairly intact.

    I spend a lot of time looking through Detroit homes and walking up and down in street view. It’s fascinating…and sad at times. Homes like this are encouraging indeed. This could be the jewel of the entire neighborhood.

    Well, some of it.

    This is a wonderful house worthy of restoration but one needs to be careful about buying in Detroit. While the city has experienced an incredible resurgence for the last six or so years, I think of Detroit as a series of wonderful islands surrounded by stormy seas.

    This house is just north of a two wonderful islands: Arden Park and the Boston-Edison neighborhood, two islands I would not hesitate to buy into. But, in Detroit, even a single block can make a big difference.

    On the street this house is located are numerous abandoned houses. Will these be snapped up and restored? Or will things get worse? The house next door (right), now boarded up, was occupied in 2013. The empty lot across the street was a house in 2013.

    Just down the street (west) there were four houses a decade ago, all occupied. Now, there’s this:

    In short? Caveat emptor!

      Big change when you look at Google maps. From 2007 to 2019. I hope they bring this city back. And the beautiful homes with it

    Gentrifying areas expand outward. The listing mentions this area being near the Boston-Edison District which I believe has turned the corner and is improving. In Indianapolis the Fountain Square neighborhood used to be bargain central. Not so today and adjacent districts/neighborhoods like the Bates-Hendricks neighborhood is now a hotbed of redevelopment and renovation (at least it is being portrayed as such on the HGTV show Good Bones) We can only hope that such a renaissance will eventually come to this Detroit neighborhood. It has to start somewhere and this house would be a great candidate to begin a revitalization of the area. Future architecturally compatible in-fill housing on vacant lots is the icing on the cake. In the case of Detroit, it might be better to subsidize house moves by taking restoration worthy homes standing isolated and moving them to recreate more dense cohesive neighborhoods as there were here originally. Assuming the positive trends in Detroit continue, someday those long vacant and abandoned areas may yet see redevelopment in the future. A century ago, Detroit was a Midwestern economic powerhouse-a century from now-who knows? Anything is possible given enough time.

    Yikes! I hope the bedroom measurements are way off. 8×6 & 6×6? We have a 1/2 bath that is 8×6 & my pantry is bigger than that. The rooms shown in the pictures look a lot bigger than the sizes listed.
