So much to like about this College Heights colonial located on one of the least trafficked, quiet streets in the area. Set back off the street under a canopy of trees in a park-like location just might clinch the deal before you go inside. Open floor plan with generous, bright living room, formal dining room and kitchen opening to the family room with wood burning fireplace and a newer Pella door wall opening to a large patio in a shaded, very private back yard. Features include remodeled kitchen with granite counters, stainless steel appliances, updated baths, newer windows and updated electrical panel. Additional updates over the years include furnace, central air, sealed foundation, and a new 30 year architectural shingle roof in 2019. Nice master suite up with a 2020 remodeled master bath with new walk in shower, counter and fixtures. Unbeatable location, walk to Eastern Michigan University, 5 minutes to St. Joseph's Hospital, Depot Town, nationally acclaimed WIHI and WIMA high school and middle school, shopping, dining, entertainment and expressways.
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.
