Neighborhoods - Angell


Homes served from Angell School shades from fraternities and student apartments near the U-M campus (if indeed there be school-age children there) to expensive homes to the north and east, residences of prominent university and medical school faculty. Bordering on the thousand-acre Nichols Arboretum, a wooded natural area sloping down to the Huron River, Angell in its northern reaches is parklike itself. The riverside areas are among the city's most expensive neighborhoods, with stately mansions and large, secluded homes.

East of the Arb, the streets north of Geddes are lined with one-of-a-kind homes from the decades on either side of World War II. Perched on the slopes overlooking the river are newer custom-built houses, many in mid-century Modern styles. Many, including the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Palmer House on Orchard Hills Dr. (you can now stay overnight there), are architectural showpieces. South of Geddes are the winding, wooded streets of another top-dollar neighborhood, Ann Arbor Hills, also with many custom-designed homes.

The Angell district reaches north of the river to include the modernist 360-unit Huron Towers, built in 1960 and constructed using the then-new lift-slab system devised by U-M architecture prof Philip Youtz, and U-M family housing on North Campus. Children also are bused in from the huge 598-unit Golfside Lakes apartment complex east of US-23.

Angell grads go on to Tappan and Scarlett middle schools and meet up again at Huron High.
