Step into this beautiful and airy townhome in the highly sought after Wellesley Gardens community and see why you need to call this home. This lovely home has over 1300 sq.ft., 2 beds., and 2 1/2 baths, and has been impeccably maintained by the original owner. Enjoy the open floor plan on the main level and the two private suites on the upper level, each with their own private bathroom and walk in closets. To say that this is one of the best locations in the community is an understatement. Not only can you enjoy your own private patio while enjoying your morning coffee or afternoon beverage, but you also have the benefit of looking out and facing the gorgeous and expansive courtyard area that only a few residents within the community have the luxury of enjoying. Your location is top notch. You are 10-15 minutes from the central, medical, and north campuses of The University of Michigan, minutes from downtown Ann Arbor, and situated perfectly for a quick commute to the airport. All of this and low township taxes as another added benefit. Don't wait to see this one.
Ypsilanti, and adjacent Ypsilanti Township, with a combined population of about 74,000, are located on Ann Arbor's eastern border. Many of Ypsilanti's residents work at the businesses and industries located in Ypsilanti; others work in Ann Arbor and surrounding communities, or eastward in the greater Detroit area.
Starting in the 1920's, Ypsilanti began to play a role in the development of the automobile, and auto production continues to be an important part of Ypsilanti's economy today. Ypsilanti really hit the map during World War II, when Henry Ford's Willow Run B-24 bomber plant became the first to produce the planes on an assembly line, turning out one bomber roughly every hour. The Yankee Air Museum and its annual Thunder over Michigan air show at the Willow Run Airport are popular destinations recounting the history of that time.
Ypsilanti is home to Eastern Michigan University, founded in 1849 as Michigan State Normal School; EMU now enrolls about 24,000 undergraduate and graduate students. With 12 parks in the city, and another 30 in the township, recreational opportunities are many. A number of the parks flank the Huron River or Ford Lake, offering access to a variety of water sports. Throughout the year, a number of special events dot the calendar; among the most popular are the Elvisfest and the Ypsilanti Heritage Festival.
Many housing styles and ages are found in the Ypsilanti area, from stately Italianate and Queen Anne examples to newly built neighborhoods.
