One of the oldest and most recognizable homes in Jefferson Chalmers, this iconic stone house has stood in Jefferson Chalmers for over a century, retaining much of its original charm. A proud stone fireplace, terrazzo and hardwood floors throughout the first floor punctuate its historical features. Thoroughly historic on the outside, a more modern sensibility can be found on the inside. Important upgrades have been made to the home in recent years: roof; electrical; furnace and A/C (rare in a home of this age); tankless water heater; tuckpointing of stone; and windows have been replaced or completed. A generous island, two sinks, and a large eating area create the perfect entertaining kitchen. The second floor has been totally reimagined with vaulted ceiling and generous rooms, including a prized second floor laundry room. The chance to create the primary bath of your dreams with a roomy dressing room/closet is available. The Jefferson Chalmers neighborhood features dining options like Coriander Kitchen; kayak rentals to explore the canals and shoreline of the Detroit River; and Alfred Brush Ford Park Community Center opening soon.
