402 Pauline is a brick Cape Cod style home built in 1941. It is well situated both to live pleasantly in the City of Ann Arbor and as a base-camp for life in Michigan and the world.

Basic Stats: 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 baths, wood floors and a fireplace. It has a great 380 sqft deck with spa. 402 provides total 1013 sqft including a finished game room in the basement. The house is brick with siding and has a finishable attic. It has forced air heat and air conditioning and a detached 2 car garage with opener. The house comes with appliances including a fancy front-loading washer and dryer and a new bottom-freezer refrigerator.

The house is offered for sale by the owner for $230,000. Agents welcome. Please contact Bill via email: 402pauline@gmail.com for appointments or with questions.

Location is 402's super power. It is only a 1 mile walk to downtown Ann Arbor and the Central Campus of the Univeristy of Michigan. Washtenaw Dairy is a quick walk down Main Street and you'll find a grocery store only 1 mile south if you couldn't find it downtown. Pauline is the #8 bus line for a dry trip downtown on a rainy day. Easy access to I-94 means quick trips to Detroit, DTW, and the world.

Location bonus round: Being only 2 blocks from Michigan Stadium, the front yard and driveway can be sold to tailgaters. Do a good job and this can be a significant income supplement.

The deck was built in 2005, it has Trex decking (wash it once a year to keep it looking awesome), a built-in recently refurbished hot-tub, and a custom window door leading to it. If it pleases you, the deck comes with a stone topped table and chairs that are not stone topped. This deck is perfect for entertaining 4 to 40 of your friends.

The living room is a lovely place to sit with friends and catch up with each other or your latest television obsession. When the moving pictures bore you light the fireplace and look for yourself on the wall.

The kitchen is the original simple galley kitchen. It is the kitchen for people that dream of kitchens; a swing of the hammer and a trip to Ikea will make your dream a reality. I do not dream of kitchens so I have enjoyed it as is. I recently replaced the refrigerator with a nice Kenmore, the previous ice chest was my age.

Both bedrooms have nice floors and good light from 2 big windows. The back is a little smaller with a nice ceiling fan, the front is a little bigger.

The bathroom was remodeled before I moved in, nice white tile through out. No jewel tones here.

The basement has three rooms. The game room with that so keen knotty pine paneling (no fake stuff here) and shuffleboard built into the tile floor. The workshop houses the furnace and water heater and comes with a workbench that will outlast civilization. The laundry room includes a washer and dryer from space sitting across from an indoor outhouse. Revel in the incongruity!

402 was a rental before I bought it and it could easily be your rental property! The rental market for nice houses close to campus is very strong--if I were the type to manage such endeavors, I would, but I'm not.
