Once a diamond in the rough, this newly restored cottage now sparkles with charm from head to toe—or in this case, floor to ceiling. Located in Northwest Detroit, the 1949 residence was deserted for 11 years until a designer couple discovered the home through the Detroit Land Bank Authority and purchased it for $1,000.
Of course, for a purchase price of $1,000, the couple knew the remodel of the 785-square-foot space would require much more than a little elbow grease. However they embraced the challenge and restored the home’s unique character while adding a chic, contemporary aesthetic.
Featuring two bedrooms and one bathroom, the single-family home squeezes everything—including a one-car garage—onto its .1-acre city lot. The remodeled interior boasts colorful furnishings, complemented by various textures and patterns, all of which can be purchased as part of the sale.

19441 Biltmore St, Detroit, MI 48235 is currently listed for $69,900 by Ashley Mann of Hall & Hunter-Birmingham. The home can also be purchased with all the furnishings shown for an additional $3,000.
