Today we’re visiting a beautiful French estate. Wait, we’re actually heading north up Woodward Avenue to Pleasant Ridge, where we found a charming home on a perfectly manicured lawn. It almost seems like a European getaway just a few blocks from the Detroit Zoo. The house dates back to 1913 and definitely has something old and something new. The price? $1,195,000.
Inside, find rich woodwork, a dark fireplace in the living room, plenty of shelving so your ducks are in a row, a sun room, a formal dining room, and a huge kitchen. This black and white kitchen has subway tiling, marble counter tops, a butler’s pantry, and so much storage. Within the five bedrooms, there’s a master suite that includes a sitting area with built-in shelving, plus a gorgeous bathroom with a claw foot tub. The house sits on over a half acre and the yard is perfectly landscaped. It’s close to Ferndale, Royal Oak, 696, and the Detroit Zoo. It’s listed through Sal Impastato and Mark Best at Hall and Hunter.
