Built in 1938, this Oakland Hills home, nestled in the tony Monclair enclave, is a true charmer. Weathered over the years, it benefitted from a major renovation in 2011. Don’t let’s its bucolic, laidback exterior fool you—inside it’s all new.

Featuring three beds, three and a half baths, and 2,328 square feet, 5840 Florence Terrace comes with new hardwood flooring, light fixtures, kitchen, baths, and more. Outside there’s enough land to form your own small country, should the mood strike—approximately 15,400 of it

In addition to having a large yard frequented by deer and other wildlife, it comes with studio space under the detached garage. A soothing retreat not too far from the city.

Asking is $1,195,000.
