This meticulously maintained, beloved family home is available for the first time in nearly 50 years. Sitting on a quiet half acre lot within an easy walk to charming downtown Dexter, elementary and middle schools, this charming Cape Cod hits so many buttons -- sizable kitchen (updated in '01) with adjacent flex room addition; large living room with gas fireplace (hardwood flooring under the carpet!); large first floor bedroom or office; full bath; and laundry room with utility sink and freezer. Upstairs, there are two additional bedrooms; second full bath; sizable common rec area; and oodles of storage space. Off the back is a lovely covered porch looking over a fabulous back yard complete with stone wall and garden beds. The garage sits above a storage or workshop space accessed from the back yard. (Note that there are reinforced footings under garage.) Water heater is new in 2022. Furnace and a/c have been professionally maintained yearly. Downtown Ann Arbor and the University of Michigan are a 20 minute drive east. Dexter-Huron, Hudson Mills, and Delhi Metro Parks are just a few miles away.
A city of about 4,000 located eight miles west of Ann Arbor; Dexter is the unofficial gateway to the area's lakes and metroparks. Dexter’s restaurants and pubs are popular gathering points for those who’ve spent the day engaged in outdoor activity. Founded in 1824, Dexter is another of the county’s villages with an agricultural heritage. Although a few farms remain today, most of Dexter’s residents are professionals working in Dexter, Ann Arbor or the greater Detroit area.
Dexter features a thriving village center with a number of appealing shops, as well as a downtown park with a large gazebo that is a favorite spot after a visit to the Dairy Queen across the street. During the summer months, a variety of events occur downtown, highlighted in August by the much-anticipated Dexter Daze, which draws thousands of people from all over the county.
Dexter’s housing stock is varied, with beautiful examples of Victorian architecture close in, and newer subdivisions around the edges.
