This special Ann Arbor Hills home is often identified as “the beautiful house with the tennis court.” And it is much more than that – classic, understated, elegant, and with a combined 1.1 acre lot – it has much to offer.
Q. What distinctive features set this home apart?
Built in 1929, this beauty has wonderful original finishes, spacious rooms, and lots of natural light. Features include a gracious foyer and stairway, hardwood floors throughout the main level, built-ins in the living room, dining room and family rooms, two welcoming fireplaces, and large windows. The living room and family room both open to a wide, private brick patio and large yard with mature landscaping.
Q. Have there been any recent renovations or upgrades?
The home has been beautifully maintained. An addition expanded the kitchen and added a porte cochère which gives access to the 2.5 car garage, backyard, and patio. In addition to its architectural interest the porte cochère is a top-notch space for outdoor entertaining when the weather is less than perfect.
Q. What amazing views will the new homeowner be able to enjoy?
This is a city home with country views – landscaping and privacy make the backyard a joy for gathering and play, and the front yard offers a great view of the neighborhood. The tennis court is nestled into the side yard in an inconspicuous and fitting way.
Q. Can you tell us a fun fact about the home?
From 1974-1984, 2211 Devonshire was owned by W. Michael and Eileen Blumenthal. While they lived here, Mr. Blumenthal served as Secretary of the Treasury in the Carter Administration. He was also the President and CEO of Bendix International, a manufacturing and engineering company specializing in auto parts, electronics, and aerospace.
Q. What makes the price of this home so great?
The price of the home includes TWO parcels. One parcel has the house, one parcel has the tennis court.
Q. Tell us about the neighborhood / area of the home?
This particular stretch of Devonshire Road, quiet and lined with huge trees, is arguably one of the loveliest residential streets in Ann Arbor. Its location cannot be beat.
