Judy Rose, Detroit Free Press, October 4, 2014 (A restored home in Boston-Edison)

This handsome house in the Boston-Edison Historic District has been restored to near impeccable condition. The shipshape lines of the exterior trim and the landscape - first impression when you approach the house - carry through into the interior, where every room has been brought up to original condition.

The home, priced at $400,000, dates from 1917. Its style is Arts and Crafts, which makes it earlier and more straightforward than some much-adorned Boston-Edison houses that were built in the late 1920s.

Instead, the beauty is in the proportions of big square rooms, the massive wood pillars, the heavy symmetrical woodwork - all oak on the first floor, all tiger birch on the second. The windows are especially beautiful  - arched Palladian windows across the front, real wood mullioned glass panes. They're all original, as are the French doors inside.
