A prominent Detroit couple (now recently deceased) constructed this Bloomfield Hills mansion in 1989. Now, all of their furniture—their Bosendorfer grand piano (worth more than $100,000), their chandeliers with Austrian crystal—are up for grabs along with the listing for the cost of $12.7 million. Detroit Free Press reported that this 17,515-square-foot mansion is one of the biggest abodes for sale in metro Detroit and is located on one of Bloomfield Hills' most exclusive streets, Rathmor Road. With 10 bedrooms, 10 full bathrooms, and four half bathrooms, this abode is situated on over three acres of land, while facing the Bloomfield Hills Country Club golf course. Some of the most stunning highlights to this abode include its double curving staircase and curved balcony in the foyer, paneled library, sun room, and mahogany-paneled elevator. In order to accommodate guests, there are two three-car heated garages and a dining room that can sit over 12 guests. In each of the public rooms and in most of the bedrooms, there is a fireplace. Detroit Free Press reported that "all nine" bedrooms have balconies. In the end, it's the little things, that really make this listing so unique. Little things like the mailbox that is a pretty accurate and fairly adorable replica of the mansion, decorative columns and all.
