1049 Seminole Street
Designed by Thomas Coughlan for Sen. Edward Bland, this gorgeous 1909 home with complimentary elements of both arts & crafts and shingle style is tucked into one of the most desirable blocks in Indian Village. Lush, mature landscaping frames the exterior, recently updated with new cedar shake, gutters, roof, paint, and re-built second-floor balcony. Inside, there’s a wealth of period woodwork: hardwood floors, wall paneling, original pocket doors, and artisan-milled staircase. The first-floor receiving rooms and four large second-floor bedrooms present character hardware throughout. Early 2000s kitchen and bathrooms updates and second-floor laundry allow a new owner the option of continuing to add personal touches over time or to modernize immediately. Partially finished third-floor bedrooms, bath, and flex space offer additional possibilities. Steps to West Village amenities; easy access to Belle Isle and Downtown — a rarely-available historic gem in Detroit’s premier neighborhood.
