This home truly checks all the boxes as a dream home. The historic detail and character of this 1878 home is captivating. When stepping inside you are greeted with the stately staircase to your left, solid wood pocket door on your right and an enchanting wooden archway strait ahead. Moving through the archway you enter into generous open dining area and newly remodeled, spacious kitchen. Multiple living spaces in this classically private yet open layout have made this home an ideal setting to host get-togethers. Enjoying coffee and a book on the front porch is a favorite pastime. The newly built back porch makes backyard barbeques with neighborhood friends a huge hit. Sitting on nearly a half acre, the backyard feels like a secret garden with paths for the dogs and kids to run around. Tucked away in the lush backyard is a newly built, sturdy tree fort for the kids. Updates by the current owner include wooden privacy fence, fully fenced yard, wood deck on back, replicated to match style of front porch, gutters, basement lighting and cedar lined closets. Outstanding location, 3 minutes to nationally acclaimed high school, middle school, EMU, St. Joseph's Hospital, shopping, dining, entertainment, expressways Ann Arbor and DTW.

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.
