This is the first offering of this historic mansion in 70 Yrs on this landmark built for automaker B. Everitt and later bought by C. Grinnell, this English Tudor house has 3 Full floors of living space above a finished lower level. This urban palace of 8800 square feet has 8 bedrooms, 6 full & 2 half baths. The main floor has a gigantic living room with a carved limestone fireplace, a large oak-paneled dining room, a tiled sunroom with another limestone fireplace, and a paneled library with yet another fireplace and a hidden bar. The vintage kitchen area includes a butler’s pantry with a dumbwaiter and the original pink refrigeration room. The grand entry hall is repeated upstairs with a barrel-vaulted ceiling. The marble staircase leads the the lower level with a large ballroom, billiard’s room with a bar and a children’s playroom with a vintage mural of the house and its neighbors. Plus, there’s a full apartment above the 3-car garage. It needs to be updated and restored but what a deal at $499,000! The catch? It’s in Detroit. But unlike some “deals” in Detroit, it’s in the posh, East Boston-Arden Park area. This is a $30 million house in the Hamptons… with the difference you can start a community center and buy a jet. Go for it!
