Wow. That’s all we can say about this historic and unique home for sale in Indian Village. Built in 1902, it was designed by the firm Mason & Kahn, whose principals were—you guessed it—renowned Detroit architects George D. Mason and Albert Kahn.
The 4,549-square-foot home on Seminole Street is listed with Tom Ball of Real Estate One for $640,000.
The exterior of the building is fairly modest. There’s some cedar shake on the second and third floors, a few stone accents around the windows and front door, and a large brick chimney.
But inside, the six-bedroom home reveals some stunning Craftsman details, both old and new.
The living room, for instance, has an incredible wood carved fireplace with Ionic columns that stretch all the way to the ceiling. There are lovely built-in wood shelves and cabinets in the reading room and butler’s pantry. And you can see more impressive woodwork on the coffered ceilings in the foyer, carvings in the staircase columns, and molding throughout.
The kitchen is worth noting for another reason: it’s “steampunk” theme. We’re not sure when it was remodeled, but there’s now industrial fixtures, an old ice chest for storage, an island with a farmhouse sink and a wild copper faucet, and exposed brick wall behind the huge oven and range.
The home sits on a double lot and has a big backyard with a brick path leading from the pergola at the back of the house to a rock garden and koi pond. There’s also a detached three-car garage.
There’s so much more we could say about this stunning home, so take a look at the pictures and maybe even pay a visit in person. Showings are by appointment only.
