This massive Indian Village mansion is steeped in history. The 1917 house was designed by Leonard B Willeke for Josephine Clay, Eleanor Ford's sister. The garden was designed by Jens Jensen, who designed the grounds at the Edsel and Eleanor Ford House. We’ve covered this Indian Village home extensively in past sales, and it found a new owner last summer. It had been on and off the market for a while, finally selling for $660,000. It’s back on the market and hoping for an offer closer to earlier asking prices. It’s now listing for $735,000.
First of all, this is a big house — 7,300 square feet — on a lot that goes all the way back to Seminole. The house has been maintained through the years (you can read an account of it here) and it has the charm found in some grand old homes — Ice boxes in the kitchen, wood paneled studies, tiled fireplaces.
But the house has modern amenities many would find attractive — a gorgeous master bathroom, a huge dressing room, a beautiful sun room.
It has six bedrooms, three full and two half baths, and a big garage out back. Do you like wine? Dogs? You’re covered here.
