The historic Eli and Blanche Gallup house is filled with stunning historic details: beautiful woodwork, custom built-ins, French doors, and Pewabic tiles. Eli Gallup was the superintendent of the Ann Arbor parks system from 1919-1961, and created many of the city parks we enjoy today. Gallup Park is named in his honor. The current owners have updated an maintained the home for nearly 50 years, preserving the historic character, while bringing it into the 21st Century. The kitchen and bathrooms have been modernized, and a large family room/sunroom addition, with primary suite above was added on. Updates include newer mechanicals in 2014, knob and tube wiring has been completely replaced, many plumbing updates, and the primary bath was remodeled with added second floor laundry. Large windows off the back overlook the 1/2 acre, double lot, with established gardens and beautiful old trees. The historic two car garage has also been updated and restored. The perfect location: walking distance to UM Central Campus, The Arb and UM Hospital, and Angell Elementary, yet a peaceful retreat from the city. Don’t miss your chance to be only the third owner of this charming home!
