The Palmer Woods estate belonging to Detroit Institute of Arts Director Graham Beal is up for sale, asking $525K. While the Detroit News wets itself over what that could mean, let us peek into the historic home of the DIA's chieftain.
The "English Cotswold-style" house packs in 6,000 square feet, offering six bedrooms, six baths and a dizzying spiral staircase. Designed by noted architect Robert Derrick and built in 1927, the estate offers five fireplaces. Fortunately, you shouldn't need any of them—there's also a newer boiler. The giant kitchen looks fabulous, and we're not complaining about the custom pool out back. There aren't too many photos of the upstairs, but trust the realtor: This "handsom charmer" has "impressive private quarters."
