Only a handful of Detroit single-family homes can claim direct, private waterfront access along the Detroit River. One of them is the house next door to the Manoogian Mansion on the east side of the city, which is on the market for $2.2 million.

Built in 1921 on 0.69 acres, this waterfront home boasts direct views of the Detroit Yacht Club on Belle Isle and downtown Detroit from the backyard.

For the first time in nearly 30 years, the majestic colonial building at 9230 Dwight Street in the Berry Joseph Subdivision of Detroit’s Lower East Side Historic District is available for purchase.

Jimmy Saros, sales agent for Saros Real Estate Services, said of the current owner and her husband, “My father actually sold this house when he bought it.

The house is next to the mayor’s residence and a few houses away from the land once owned by Kid Rock. It was also recently listed for $2.2 million pending sale.

With an abundance of historic features, high ceilings, grand staircase with original railings, original crown molding, oak hardwood floors and tiles, the home offers 5,458 square feet, according to the Realcomp listing. It is estimated that there is a completed above-ground living space.

It has 6 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, 4 fireplaces and a living room with a Pewavic fountain overlooking the water. On the 3rd floor there is a large games room with a pool table.

The landscaped backyard features a pond and a circular driveway with a central fountain that leads to a 3-car garage and a boat garage facing the Detroit River.

“Like many waterfront properties, the background really resembles the front of the house,” Salos said. “This is just one of three homes with a boat garage.”

Detroit’s zoning code no longer allows boat garages, Saros said, so they’re excluded.

The historic home has modern features such as updated windows, central air conditioning, walk-in closets, including a walk-in closet in the master bedroom, and large, open rooms that flow into each other unlike some older homes. There is also A place where a room can be divided into large sections.

A 1995 Detroit Free Press article documents when the house was last sold. Bought by Mr. and Mrs. Zdenko and Mr. and Mrs. Nada Murakovich, who immigrated from Croatia and moved to the area from New York before becoming boosters and investors in Detroit.

“Last October, they sold their Grosse Point home and purchased a riverfront home adjacent to the Manoogian Mansion for over $600,000, making them neighbors to Detroit’s first couple, Denise and Trudy Archer.” I read the article.

The property went on sale on July 28th for the first time since Mrakovcices purchased it in 1994.
