Ann Arbor home with ‘see-through cabin’ vibe listed for $1 million

ANN ARBOR, MI – The second major overhaul of a mid-century modern home in the Ann Arbor Hills neighborhood has helped give it a “modern twist” as it starts the next chapter in its evolution.

The 2,883-square-foot home, located at 2671 Bedford Road and listed for $1.02 million, was built in 1951 before large windows and other architectural upgrades were added in 1974.

The latest remodel in 2019 helped transform the home’s lower level into finished space, adding three new bathrooms and two bedrooms to the residence, which is MLive’s House of the Week. House that range in architectural style and price are featured every Wednesday.

To learn more about the home, which has three bedrooms, three full bathrooms and plenty of views of the surrounding neighborhood, check out the listing.

“Before the renovation, the kitchen was just a skinny, galley kitchen,” Evenson said. “The builders wanted it to be an open concept so they completely took the wall out, renovated the entire kitchen and added this huge, beautiful island so that it’s more of a gathering space.”
