This 3/2 Bungalow is roomy and convenient, just minutes away from downtown Royal Oak with easy freeway access. The eat-in kitchen looks good with dark stained wood cupboards over a tile floor and granite counters opposite a modern gas stove. A ceiling fan over the eating area will keep the place comfortable even in warmer weather. The wide dual-basin stainless steel sink with its extra-tall faucet and built-in spray nozzle are perfect for doing the dishes. Just behind the kitchen, a sizable laundry room has a side door that opens to the garage, so it's easy to bring in your groceries. In the downstairs bathroom, the wide-bowl sink and tile floors and backsplash are stylish, and the convenient built-in wire shelving in the shower makes the perfect place to put razors, shampoo, and lather thingies. The upstairs bathroom (off the master bedroom) features a classic pedestal sink & commode with a shower. The living room and family room, which make up most of the downstairs, share a light-toned hardwood floor. The family room has a ceiling fan and the sliding glass door that opens onto a patio & fenced back yard, and the living room stairs lead up to the three bedrooms. Those three bedrooms are clad in wall-to-wall carpet to keep the toes warm, and a bespoke dresser and shelving in the shared hallway make for a great place to put communal stuff. One of the bedrooms has unique chalkboard walls, perfect for doodling all over. Another, the master bedroom, is slightly larger and has its own bathroom. Outside, a 1.5 car detached garage offers more storage for a car, some stuff, or both. The fenced-in backyard is great for an afternoon barbeque party. Rent is $1,899 per month and the security deposit required is 1 to 1 1/2 months depending on qualifications. Viewing is by appointment only and you can move in immediately.

What to keep in mind when looking for apartments with balconies in Royal Oak, MI

Balconies are a coveted amenity for many renters looking for high-rise views and opportunities for fresh air. However, you should keep in mind that balconies often come with restrictions.

Before signing a lease, ask about how many people can be on the balcony at once. Also, ask about whether you’re allowed to store a bike or other items.

You’ll also want to know about any maintenance schedules. Using your balcony as storage could result in fines and intervention from your property management.

Keep in mind that not all balconies are created equally. You may discover the views of the parking area are less than optimal or reduce your overall privacy.

Balconies can also get messy with debris, foliage, dirt, and pollen depending on your location. Renters are typically responsible for any clean-up and basic balcony upkeep.

Regardless of the issues to keep in mind, balconies are usually a big win for Royal Oak renters. Ask about apartments on higher floors for the best views.
