Beautiful homes reside around a historic park in this much sought-after tree-lined neighborhood, located in central Ann Arbor, by Washtenaw and Packard.

Meticulously landscaped yards provide some of the prettiest streets in Ann Arbor, making Burns Park one of Ann Arbor’s most desirable neighborhoods to live in. Delightful mix of charming and contemporary homes built in 1848-2014 featuring 1-3 story floor plans with 1-18 bedrooms, 1-9 baths, with 900-9000 square feet, and may include finished walkout basements and attached/detached garages.   Styles include Tudor, Victorian, barn-style, farmhouse, ranch, bi-level, bungalow, cape cod, colonial, and contemporary.  The proximity to both downtown and University of Michigan’s main campus, in addition to large yards and some wooded rolling lots, make this luxurious area a much-desired neighborhood.

Walk to U of M football games, hockey and ice skating and art fairs. Enjoy nearby Nichols Arboretum, canoeing at Gallup Park, the many golf courses, and family-oriented activities. Near Packard and Hill, older houses occupied by longtime residents mingle with student housing and apartment buildings.

Students from the immediate Burns Park area go to Burns Elementary and Tappan Middle School, but then they split once transitioning to high school, with those north of Washtenaw going to Huron High and the rest to Pioneer. Students also are bused into Burns Park from Arbor Pointe, with 280 apartments across from Washtenaw Community College, and the huge Glencoe Hills complex, with 584 units.

Burns Park Condominiums only has 20 units, rarely available because of its prime location on Packard. 1-story and 3-story condo units have 643-1174 square feet,  1-3 bedrooms and 1-3 baths.  This 1966 contemporary building community offers reserved off-street parking.  Reasonable association fee includes heat, gas, water, exterior maintenance,  snow and trash removal.

Burns Park is walking distance to all sports and athletic fields and stadiums, Yost ice arena, Central Campus and Downtown.  Walk or bike to Burns Park and the elementary school, U-M Medical Centers and Campus, Central Campus, Downtown, Nichols Arboretum, Furstenburg and Gallup Park on the Huron River.

Burns Park has so many things for kids to do. In the winter they have a mini hill you can sled on. In the summer there is a huge fountain turned on for hot summer days. All this located in a beautiful old school neighborhood. At least four separate areas for the little one to play in and to discover. Plenty of shade. Good park equipment. Ball fields. Basketball court. Tetherball courts. Great playscapes. Huge sand pit play area. What more can you ask for?
