Famed Detroit architect Louis Kamper, perhaps most well known for his Art Deco and Neo-Renaissance skyscrapers downtown, also designed a number of mansions in the early 20th century. One is this stunning home in Grosse Pointe, built in the early 1910s, which is listed through Realtor Ian Mason for $1.39 million.
The 7,629-square-foot Georgian Revival mansion has some stately columns extending from multiple sides of its white brick exterior, as well as some beautiful cornice brackets under the roof.
Inside the six bedroom, four-and-a-half bath home, there’s impressive floor-to-ceiling doors and windows that blend the space between interior and exterior. We especially like the Florida-style room and bay windows in the grand hall.
The owners have also done a fantastic job maintaining all the wood trim, plaster molding and corbels, hardwood floors, and basically everything else in the home. The kitchen has gotten a modern update with some nice appliances, granite countertops, and contemporary appliances.
The property also comes with a renovated 800-square-foot carriage house, and recently had its circular drive and walkways redone.
