Photo out back may seem strange to post but it shows that 90 Glynn Ct. backs up to the Ira Grinnell (Grinnell Electric Auto Co.; Grinnell Brothers music) estate. The Grinnell estate, at 650 West Boston Blvd. is one half block of the block. Boston Edison is a premier historic neighborhood in Detroit. The homes in Boston Edison, built between 1911 and 1917, housed the most notable people of the era.

Handful of estates within walking distance of 90 Glynn:
John W. Drake (President, Hupp Motor Car Co.)
C. Harold Wills (Designer, Model T) 
Ira Briggs (Briggs Staduim & Tigers owner)
Berry Gordy (Motown Records)

Mid-town two bedroom lofts are selling for $250-$300k. The tide is moving north especially with the new light rail. Boston Edison never completely lost its shine during Detroit's rough times. Folks who wanted to live in real architecture with history maintained many of these gems. 

Look on the Realestate sites. Ferndale 2bd/1.5bth listing $200-$300. Just south of Ferndale in Detroit's historic Palmer Woods neighborhood prices are moving up.

This bloggers instinct: 90 Gynn Ct. in the prestigious Boston is a steal at $170,000. True turn key jewel I would snap it up.
