Location isn’t everything, it’s the ONLY thing.

Perfect for someone:

The Neighborhood

This is the best neighborhood in Ann Arbor. It is quiet and residential, yet proximate to all the commercial, social and educational attractions that make Ann Arbor the best place to live in the USA. (Niche.com, April 17, 2017) The building is on a quiet, residential street and the building is peaceful, clean and pleasant.

Second Street is lined with venerable trees, cooling in the summer and providing a breathtaking color tour of red, orange, yellow and brown leaves in the fall.

Containing a central elementary school, the OWS is a delightful mix of families of all ages, apartments, single family homes and long term residents.

Outstanding Features

No noisy elevators to wait for crowded with strangers.

There are a total of only four apartments in the building occupied by courteous tenants.

The Old West Side is Ann Arbor’s most desirable location. Close to downtown, but still quiet with a real sense of neighborhood.

Built in approximately 1900. If you listen closely, you can still hear the grain filled railroad cars rumble through town.

All repairs and improvements have been executed with long-term thinking, with permanent materials and with respect for the historic nature of the building and neighborhood.

Updated insulated glass windows.

All apartments sport 3” wide board, clear finished maple hardwood floors.

Great attention has been paid to maintain the historic detail of the building’s interior.

Unfurnished: All apartments are unfurnished and have a move-in ready, old world charm.

Back yard: Well maintained, large, private grassy lawn ideal for relaxing, cooking out or studying.

No noisy, crowded elevators to wait for with strangers.
