This week we are featuring Jean Wedemeyer’s listing – 1908 Scottwood Avenue, Ann Arbor, MI 48104
1908 Scottwood Ave- Ann Arbor, MI 48104Q. Can you describe the architectural style of the home?
It is a 3 story Tudor with a large private arched brick porch at the front entry. Downstairs, the set-up is the best kind of traditional; the large front hall has a beautiful staircase and built-in bench and there is a sunporch overlooking the bluestone patio. Upstairs, 4 of the bedrooms have their own “sleeping porches” now in use as sunrooms, a music room, and a playroom.

1908 Scottwood Ave - PatioQ. What distinctive features set this home apart?
It sits on a 1.35- acre lot, a rare find in the city and in Ives Woods. And, it’s a lovely spot – bound by a cobblestone wall, with wooded views in almost every direction. The qualities and charm of 1915 design, like the original clay tile roof, the large and gracious spaces and lovely finishes, are all here.

1908 Scottwood Ave- Front Porch OutsideQ. What are the advantages of the location & neighborhood?
Scottwood has a secluded feel but is conveniently close to campus, downtown, and shopping on Washtenaw and Packard. It’s a short walk to Burns Park.

1908 Scottwood Ave- Front HallQ. Have there been any recent renovations or upgrades?
The kitchen has been expanded and completely remodeled with plenty of room to gather. It features Motawi tile, a cork floor, and high-end appliances. The huge, original butler’s pantry has the original cabinetry and is the perfect place to stage food for a large party or do a load of laundry.

1908 Scottwood Ave- Sun PorchQ. What amazing views will the new homeowner be able to enjoy?
In this house, you’re never far from a large window or porch with a view of the yard and wooded lot. There are great tree-top views from the bedrooms and sleeping porches.

1908 Scottwood Ave- KitchenQ. Can you tell us a fun fact about the home?
If your shoes need a shine, get to the kitchen! Two black iron shoeshine trees remain on the wall there where once, a servant could have spiffed up your shoes. These days, it’s do-it-yourself.

1908 Scottwood Ave- PantryQ. Is there anything else you’d like to tell us about the home?
1908 Scottwood Avenue is beautifully maintained and awaits its next wonderful family – and everyone can have their own room.
