I have lived in two different houses on Ann Street, and walked by these dozens of times. I have not been inside, but I have peeked in on a couple of occasions. These houses are a cool idea, yet they are not really right for the neighborhood, which is mostly older bungalows and colonials, with a couple of small apartment buildings. The Detroit Free Press thinks they are cool (link), but they have been for sale since 2002. The asking price has come down from $1.9M to about $1.2M in that time, but that is still about $7-800,000 above the average price on the street.
