It’s not often we go past 8 Mile, but we thought this Royal Oak listing is comparable to some of the old Detroit mansions we see here. Built in 1923, this three-story, 4,736-square-foot brick house is listing for $995,000.
It’s kept much of its original charm through the years, most noticeably its woodwork and built-in cabinetry.
The kitchen is also one to covet, with butcher block counter tops, massive built-in storage, and a little breakfast nook booth.
The house has seven bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms, and three fireplaces. The master suite is huge, with a beautiful walk-in closet and a bathroom as big as many New York apartments. The third floor even has an in-law suite for guests. It also includes a screened-in porch, copper roof, large mudroom, partially finished basement with fireplace, laundry and work rooms, brick patio drive, a two-car attached garage, and a fenced yard.
