We know Detroit is full of beautiful homes made with high quality craftsmanship. This one is a knockout in that regard. Built in 1915 by George Mason (who also designed the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island, the Masonic Temple, the Detroit Yacht Club, the Ransom Gillis House, and the Charles T. Fisher Mansion), this house has been exquisitely maintained throughout the years and has modern updates. The price? $565,000.
The listing remarks on its "old world quality," and we can see it in the pictures. This house has so much character, from the woodwork to the tiling to this little guy.
It’s 5,000 square feet, with five bedrooms, four baths, and a finished third floor that can be used as a separate apartment. There’s lots of built-in storage throughout. The kitchen has modern updates, but still fits in with the character and feel for the home. There’s also an adjacent butler’s pantry for additional storage. The backyard is an "English walled garden," according to the listing, and provides beauty and privacy.
