Discover timeless elegance in this meticulously restored and renovated 1908 Arts and Crafts Boston Edison Historic District home. 140 Longfellow was built for Frank and Mary Chope (wheel and buggy manufacturer E. Chope & Son) by Smith, Hinchman, and Grylls, designers of iconic buildings Meadowbrook Hall and the Penobscot and Guardian Buildings. This 5-bedroom, 2.5-bath home is a rare gem. The warmth, craftsmanship, and detail blend period charm with modern conveniences. It is beautifully landscaped, with an expansive porch and swing. Exquisite architectural detail and custom millwork are artful beauty. The color palette is from the Sherwin Williams Arts and Crafts collection. The parlor, living and dining rooms showcase wood beams, a window seat, leaded glass and cabinets, and refinished oak floors. The windows are original and restored. There are two fireplaces with detailed woodwork, one with Pewabic tile. The owner has restored or handcrafted many of the light fixtures. The new kitchen features custom handcrafted cabinets with soft close drawers, Soapstone countertops, a farmhouse sink, a downdraft stove with a gas cooktop, and stainless- steel appliances. The rectangular peninsula is a plus for meals and entertaining with a Butler’s Pantry. The first-floor laundry is in the powder room. The primary bedroom has a separate space for an office or bathroom. The full bath has dual pedestal sinks, an original clawfoot tub, and a walk-in shower. The 3rd floor has 800 sq. feet for a studio, theater, or nanny suite, with a full bath and dressing area. The 2-car garage, fenced yard and back porches extend the tranquility. Peace of mind features include new HVAC (dual furnaces and A/C), roof, electrical wiring and insulation. This enchanting home is nestled on the peaceful street of Longfellow on the block between Voigt Park and Woodward. Don’t miss the opportunity to make this home—one of the finest in the neighborhood—yours and live in one of Detroit’s premier historic districts.
