Bloomfield Township, Mich. | $799,900
A Colonial Revival house built in 1925, with three bedrooms, two full bathrooms and two half bathrooms, on a 0.85-acre lot
This house is one of the oldest in Bloomfield Village, a one-square-mile section of Bloomfield Township established in the 1920s. The sellers have spent the last four years renovating the house, modernizing the bathrooms and adding new appliances to the kitchen, while retaining the original red-brick facade and interior details.
Cranbrook House and Gardens, designed in 1908 by Albert Kahn, is about a half a mile away, as is the Saarinen-designed Cranbrook Art Museum, which also houses the Cranbrook Academy of Art. Detroit is about half an hour away by car; Ann Arbor is a 45-minute drive.
Size: 2,708 square feet
Price per square foot: $295
