Description: Hubbard Farms is another old neighborhood close to downtown that has held its own during Detroit's tough economic times. It has a spirited and dedicated population of residents who have worked to keep the area well maintained.

"It's such a diverse neighborhood," said Brandon Lee, the home's listing agent, "with many young people buying things to fix up, and older families who have been settled in here for a long time."

The house itself has many of the kinds of architectural details that are such an attraction for many homebuyers. All of the original woodwork, fireplaces and moldings have been restored. There are gorgeous wood-paneled walls, hardwood floors and stained glass, but also updated kitchen and baths. It has a 171-foot-deep lot with beautiful landscaping.

Overall, it's a quiet neighborhood comprised of owner-occupied, well maintained housing with restaurants and stores within walking distance. Plus, it's only three miles from downtown.
