Overlooking the 7th tee of the Detroit Golf Club, this mega-tudor is a jumble of dramatic, castle-like spaces. It was built in 1925. From what the photos reveal, getting lost in its 4,300 square feet wouldn't be difficult. Inside: five bedrooms, seven bathrooms, and a range of other rooms for which a purpose is unclear.
The neo-tudor style of the 1920s was pretty wide-spread, but this place takes it further than most. Perhaps a little too far. It's hard to tell whether the interior would be cozy or overbearing. With an ask of $400K, the listing is like a laundry list of architectural glamor
"Pewabic tile, 6' cherry wood & slate floors, stunningly hand-carved banisters & book cases, solid oak doors w/bow tie joints, brass chandeliers, stained glass windows, a 5-foot wide frplc in a Great Room that features a 20+ ft ceiling, hewn copper gutters & Vermont slate roof. "
On top of that, there's even a servant's suite and a "walk-in vault." Outside, the yard looks like a beautiful spot for summer lounging, especially from that screened-in porch.
