This week we are featuring Elizabeth Brien’s listing – 1158 Baldwin Ave, Ann Arbor, MI 48104
Q. Can you describe the architectural style of the home?
It is an Arts and Crafts-style home with beautiful woodwork & trim, 9’ ceilings on the first floor plus cathedral ceiling in the addition.
Q. What distinctive features set this home apart?
The home, showcasing Arts & Crafts style, is on a large corner lot across the street from Burns Park, one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Ann Arbor. At over 4,000 square feet, there’s plenty of space for a family to spread out. Other highlights include four very large bedrooms and a beautiful formal living/dining room addition with vaulted ceilings, huge kitchen/breakfast room, tons of built-ins, and an attached library.
Q. What are the advantages of the location & neighborhood?
The house overlooks Burns Park and is a two-minute walk to the elementary school. Burns Park is a vibrant, family-oriented community with strong annual traditions including the best Halloween celebration in town, 4th of July fireworks, the Burns Park 5K, and more. Also, it’s just a short walk or bike/bus ride from the University and downtown. There is a private gate to the backyard, right across from the park – very kid friendly.
Q. Have there been any recent renovations or upgrades?
The current owners installed central air conditioning, upgraded the electric & panels throughout, upgraded the master bathroom, repainted the whole interior, and completed new grading and drainage outside.Q. Does the community have any amenities we should know about?
In addition to Burns Park, the house is walking distance to Tappan Middle School, Nichols Arboretum, and Michigan Stadium. Burns Park is popular with sidewalks and friendly neighbors.
Q. What amazing views will the new homeowner be able to enjoy?
The house overlooks Burns Park with a nice front lawn.
Q. What makes the price of this home so great?
There are very few homes of this size in Burns Park and even fewer at this price point that don’t require extensive renovations and upgrades. There are two updated baths on the second floor now (with room for a master bath if desired).
Q. Can you tell us a fun fact about the home?
The previous owners loved the old-fashioned laundry chute. The rec room in the basement was perfect for their ping pong table too.
Q. Is there anything else you’d like to tell us about the home?
The house is great for both entertaining and for daily living in the way its layout accommodates privacy and togetherness. It combines the charm of an older home with the functionality and space of a more modern home, including a nice first-floor study, library and a nice office niche.
