Only a few early 20th century homes in Ann Arbor are as stately and offer such stunning original woodwork as does this classic American Foursquare Burns Park home. While its historical charm and amenities are beautifully preserved, this spacious 4 bedroom (one with a sleeping porch!), 1 1/2 bath home has been brought up to welcomed modern functionality. The foyer's finely carved newell post and stairwell; beautifully crafted built-in china cabinet in the dining room; the built-in bookcases in the cozy study; the built-in window seats; and the to-die-for side porch are a few examples of fine 1910 craftsmanship. The kitchen addition includes a welcoming back entrance and abundant windows adding great natural light. In the last few years, central air, a concrete driveway, and lighting thru-out the 1st floor have all been installed. The boiler ('15 )and the house roof ('19) have been recently replaced. The walk-up attic offers easily accessible storage space or could be finished. Basement offers abundant space and high ceilings--great potential for finishing. Exterior has been professionally painted in historically accurate colors. Two blocks away are Burns Park Elem., AATA bus stop & Argus Farm Market. Downtown/UM are a mile away!
