Ives Woods Colonial

This Friday we are featuring  2109 Copley Avenue, Ann Arbor. We asked Jean Wedemeyer to tell us a bit about her new listing. Read what she had to say!

Built in 1928, this Burns Park center entrance colonial lives large, with 3524 SF of updated space. Additions and improvements have been made, allowing for spacious and grand living without sacrificing the charm of the original.


Q. Please describe the architectural style of the home.

The traditional colonial style is apparent when you walk in the door. The large foyer, with lovely staircase and arched entryways to the living and dining rooms, is charming. Additions in 2006-7 added more functional space: a family room with vaulted ceilings, a full ADA compliant bath on the first floor, a four-season sunporch, an expanded kitchen with skylights, a fabulous, big mudroom, and a large primary bath with treetop views.


Q. Please describe any notable renovations or upgrades.

A wonderful update by Wright Street Design includes a new kitchen and a full bath on the first floor. The bath is next to the family room where a neat sliding door can be closed to enable the space to be used as a bedroom, if needed. Upstairs, a primary bath was added with marble floors, soaker tub, and large shower. The exposed brick chimney in the bath is fun.


Q. Please describe what views the new homeowner will be able to enjoy.

The home sits on a large .37 acre professionally landscaped lot. From the third floor study, the views are wonderful. The four-season sunporch and family room open to a large composite deck and out to a great side yard.

Q. Are there any ‘fun facts’ to share about the property?

The Copley family lived here for many years. Mrs. Copley was a beloved teacher at Tappan Middle School into the 1970’s. Here is a photo of the house in 1929.


Q. Please describe the neighborhood.

This home sits in the coveted Ives Woods section of Burns Park. The winding streets are full of gracious distinctive homes on bigger lots with mature trees throughout.
