Someone please buy this midcentury fixer-upper in Detroit so we can eat fondue with you



Key parties, fondue, and the fear of nuclear fallout ahh, simpler times.

  • For $55,000 you could turn this midcentury fixer-upper nestled in a wooded neighborhood of Detroit and begin the process of fulfilling all of your wildest Mad Men-inspired dreams. You know, save the rampant infidelity and casual alcoholism.

    Located just a few blocks north of the historic Redford Theatre, this gem was erected in 1951 and features some interesting architectural details, including an original butter-yellow kitchen with an in-wall oven, a walk-around brick fireplace, and a Herman Miller light fixture. All this three bedroom, one and a half bath home needs is a little TLC to restore it to its natural glory.
