In his obituary, the Detroit Free Press called homes designed by Irving Tobocman “timeless masterpieces.” The great architect designed over 400 luxury homes around the world, many in suburban Detroit. One of which, in Bloomfield Hills, just hit the market for $2.5 million.

Built in 1971, the 5,000-square-foot home is typical of his modern style: lots of straight lines, a large main floor, floor-to-ceiling windows, and spacious rooms. Though most contain these elements, each is unique.

This home, near Quarton and Lahser roads, has a charcoal gray–painted brick exterior and a long overhang above the main entrance. Around back, you’ll find a second-story deck and walk-out that leads to an over 2,000-square-foot basement. There’s also a slightly elevated central roof with a narrow gap for windows to increase the interior light.

According to the listing agent, the home has gotten a complete renovation after being lightly touched for 50 years. There’s now new floors, shelving units, built-in countertops, a completely new kitchen and bathrooms, and much more. It’s also gotten a new roof and other essential updates.

We could describe the home further, but instead check out the photos and listing for yourself. 3467 Sutton Place is listed for $2.5 million with Renee Lossia Acho of KW Domain.
