Estimate Finished Square Feet 1,259 Sq Ft Above Ground
OFFER DEADLINE -- TUESDAY 9/13 AT 5PM. Fabulous curb appeal, a most charming interior, and smart updates come together to elevate this home to star status. The well constructed dining (or family room) addition adds needed space that is so often missing in Cape Cods. The thoughtfully remodeled kitchen is bright, cheery, and well appointed. The updated bath is on point with its pedestal sink and tiled surround tub and shower. The coved ceiling in the living room and the hardwood throughout the first and second floors (with the exception of the kitchen and carpeted addition) keeps the charm of the 40s intact. While the upstairs currently serves as a spacious craft room, it can serve immediately as a bedroom with loads of closet space available. The unfinished basement offers tremendous storage and future finished space. Outside, two porches grace the front and the side entrances and a backyard deck is perfect for family and friend time outdoors. The 1.5 car detached garage has been professionally re-stabilized; the roof is brand new; and the windows have all been replaced. Eastern Michigan is just a few-blocks away and the University of Michigan is a 15 minute drive.
Ypsilanti, and adjacent Ypsilanti Township, with a combined population of about 74,000, are located on Ann Arbor's eastern border. Many of Ypsilanti's residents work at the businesses and industries located in Ypsilanti; others work in Ann Arbor and surrounding communities, or eastward in the greater Detroit area.
Starting in the 1920's, Ypsilanti began to play a role in the development of the automobile, and auto production continues to be an important part of Ypsilanti's economy today. Ypsilanti really hit the map during World War II, when Henry Ford's Willow Run B-24 bomber plant became the first to produce the planes on an assembly line, turning out one bomber roughly every hour. The Yankee Air Museum and its annual Thunder over Michigan air show at the Willow Run Airport are popular destinations recounting the history of that time.
Ypsilanti is home to Eastern Michigan University, founded in 1849 as Michigan State Normal School; EMU now enrolls about 24,000 undergraduate and graduate students. With 12 parks in the city, and another 30 in the township, recreational opportunities are many. A number of the parks flank the Huron River or Ford Lake, offering access to a variety of water sports. Throughout the year, a number of special events dot the calendar; among the most popular are the Elvisfest and the Ypsilanti Heritage Festival.
Many housing styles and ages are found in the Ypsilanti area, from stately Italianate and Queen Anne examples to newly built neighborhoods.
