JoAnn Barrett is The Positive Difference in Ann Arbor Real Estate
262 Lafayette

Vintage Cotswald classic set on Milan's most charming street. Built by a local lumberman with an eye & budget for quality, this home has been carefully preserved since.
The arched doorway from the Entryway leads to the Living Room. The many windows throughout the home are original, and are in perfect working order. A woodburning fireplace has a classic cherry mantel.
The Living Room has gracious proportions and details. The coved ceiling was created of plaster. The original form used is stored in the home. Floors are of multi-width oak plank with walnut peg detailing. The sliding glass door leading to the study at the back of the room is designed with mullions to match the original door leading to the Three-Season Porch.
Off the Living Room is a sunny 3 Season Porch
The Study has a built-in desk with a view of the side yard. Made of solid maple, the cabinets below provide hidden storage and house the TV. Sliding glass doors open the room to the back porch & pergola.
The Dining Room is at the heart of this home. These walls, with their yellow pine paneling, have heard many animated family discussions. The wide built-in hutch has leaded glass cabinet doors, for both function and beauty.
Although the Kitchen looks original, it has been carefully restored, true to the period of the home.
The Master Bedroom has two charming dormers, each with a window. The walk-in closet and built-in drawers provide plenty of storage.
The second bedroom has a double window with built-in bookshelves, walk-in closets, and oak floors.
Bedroom three has a double window, large walk-in closet and oak floors. All woodwork in this home is original and gleaming.
The gracious design of this home continues as you walk outside. A pergola off the back of the home accents the deck, and leads to a large backyard with two seating areas. Although it has been carefully planted with decorative trees and shrubs, there is a wide expanse of lawn for kids to play on.
The current owners have incorporated a seperate buildable lot into their yard. But with direct access to the street, it could be sold in the future.
