A Personal Note - Our home is a true Victorian. Built in 1880 it sits on .6 acre deep lot in downtown Northville, michigan. It backs up to a creek that runs through town and the huge back yard of the Lutheran Church and school. Wildlife abounds including deer, ducks and lots of little critters. The property is covered with mature walnut, maple, and redbud trees. Many ornamental trees and a beautiful rare River Birch decorating a beautifully situated front yard on desirable Randolph Street just three blocks from the center of town - a short walk to everything. An occasional deer is born in our back yards on this side of the street as it is near the small river that meanders along the back yards all the way up to Taft Road and a safe spot for them.
The house is, of course, old and registered as “historical” and is listed as one of the “contributing” homes to the much desired historical significance of Northville. This list was completed and made public in 2021. It has been owned by the same family for many decades. Over the years updates have been made. Nothing drastic. The original clawfoot tub still sits in the upstairs bathroom and original french doors still separate the two living rooms. The kitchen has two large doorwalls overlooking the large deck and huge sloping back yard. There is a red barn type garage at the bottom of the property that is used for storage but is easily removed for a full view of the panoramic beautiful view of the property. The barn is of no historical signifance so it can be removed. This property is in the heart of downtown Northville and surrounded by beautiful homes and churches.
