Raymond Avenue in Dearborn is a quintessential suburban Detroit street in a neighborhood known as Carlysle Gardens. The homes here are mostly bungalows and ranches built in the 1950s. Through the years, these homes have raised a lot of families. Oakwood and Beaumont hospitals are both nearby as well as major arteries like the Southfield Freeway and I-94.
1965 Raymond Ave. is a brick and wood-sided ranch with a fantastic kitchen the owner upgraded in 2012 with ceramic tile floors and backsplash with Pewabic tile accents. It has a delightful granite counter-topped breakfast bar, perfect for taking in the cozy backyard while enjoying a cup of coffee on lazy mornings. It has three bedrooms, all with hardwood floors, a full bath and special safety/hurricane shutters that can be lowered easily with a pull. There is new lighting throughout and the tile entryway and front door also were upgraded. The entire interior has been repainted. Along the way the owner has replaced all the windows. Downstairs is a new full bath and electrical panel as well as a partially finished area that is ripe for additional decorating touches. You can enjoy entertaining on the deck in the backyard and your cars will be secure and untouched by weather in the two-car garage.
There is doubled R-30 insulation in the attic and an attic fan for better ventilation.
A stone’s throw from the Independence Marketplace where you can grab a latte at Starbucks on the way to work, 1965 Raymond Ave. is an adorable home.
