Maize and Blue House at Michigan Stadium

Ann Arbor, MI

Located in the heart of Ann Arbor, this charming four-bedroom home was built in 1905 and originally located at what is now Section 1 of Michigan Stadium; in 1926 it was moved two blocks to its current location so that Michigan Stadium could be built. In 2008, after an extensive remodel, it was featured in Fine Homebuilding magazine. We call it the Little Big House. Thanks to its yellow paint, blue trim, proximity and direct historical link to Michigan Stadium, you won't find a location with more school spirit anywhere in Ann Arbor.

Other Amenities/Notes

The Little Big House made way for the Big House. What could be more Michigan than that? This home was originally located on a lot two blocks away, on the site where Michigan Stadium now sits (near the 50-yard line in Sections 1, 44, and 43). In 1926, it was moved to its current location so Michigan Stadium could be excavated. The house was remodeled and modernized in 2008 with an open floor plan, new kitchen, baths, gas fireplace, and built-in entertainment system. It's a great place to tailgate -- the backyard features a pergola and BBQ -- and makes for the ultimate base for a weekend in Ann Arbor.

This is a fantastic house -- room for a group of guests, beautiful yet comfortable interior, and has everything you need. A quick walk to the stadium in an pleasant and attractive neighborhood. The house was immaculate and the hosts thought of little extras such a complimentary bowl of fruit which we enjoyed. We plan to rent again during the 2018 football season and would highly recommend this home to others planning a group trip to Ann Arbor.

Amazingly close to the football stadium, parking is included saving you a bunch ofmoney on that. Gorgeous home. In fact, one of my friends that was there from the New York area is in construction and he raved about the high quality of everything in and out of the house. The house had everything available that it had in its ad and more. We briefly met the owners and they seemed great.
