This brightly colored historical Victorian–with charming income unit–is located in a desirable corner in historic Corktown, the oldest residential neighborhood in Detroit. Occupied by a single artist-preservationist owner since the early 1980s, this vintage gem features appealing period details in the main property, including original woodwork, hardware, radiators, clawfoot tub, and even a dumbwaiter. Its roof, heating, plumbing, electrical, and windows are all updated. Other enticing details include historic tiles, walk-in closet, party-ready slate patio with privacy fence, and first-floor laundry. Adjacent rental unit offers a separate entrance and side yard. Incredibly walkable location offers access to all that Corktown offers, plus less than a mile from downtown.
