It’s an easy walk to the #4 and #5 bus lines, making commuting to Ann Arbor a breeze (and free if you work for University of Michigan). Candy Cane Park features a ball field, play equipment and plenty of space for families, kids and leashed pets, and there’s a committed group working toward creating a dog park in the neighborhood, too.
The College Heights Neighborhood Association is very active–in addition to organized gatherings and activities, everyone really looks out for one another and takes pride in the neighborhood.
Hands down, La Fiesta Mexicana is my favorite restaurant within walking distance, with The Wurst Bar a close second. A bit further afield, Depot Town’s Red Rocks is just amazing. The Corner Brewery is my go-to brew pub–bring a board game or borrow one that they have on hand!
The sunroom and the fireplace were the features that sealed the deal for me–I bought in the dead of winter and the sunroom was lovely and sunny and I could just imagine a fire crackling away in that front room. And I was right!
I saw the house when I wasn’t even looking to buy and knew that it was the one. I owned a small home in Ann Arbor and more than doubled my square footage, upgraded from aluminum to brick and gained a 2.5 car garage in a much more desirable neighborhood for about the same amount for which I sold the Ann Arbor house. Moving to Ypsi was SUCH a good thing for me!
The immediate neighbors are particularly helpful and friendly.
I really appreciated how quite the street is–great place for the kids to ride bikes and for family walks. I never had to worry about kids crossing the street to visit friends.
My average utility costs are very affordable–and they got even better when we put in the new heat/central air.
