Legend had it there was a Governor's Gala event here in the 90's. After viewing the home myself I'm not sure why H.W. Bush didn't require the secret service to do the same. This historical home is simply stunning! There is no shortage of charm, class or coziness with this one. They don't build them like this anymore. The first stone house built on Grosse Ile (1860) and designed by famed architect, Gordon Lloyd, is anchored with the thickest of stone walls. The location doesn't get better! Located in the East River historic district on a corner lot with just over an acre of lush grass with privacy provided by sturdy trees, shrubbery and the river front across the street. Great care and attention was made to restore the home but also keep the radiance of yesteryear. Lloyd was ahead of his time in constructing this handsome home. Gray stone, with pointed gables and tall chimneys are remarkable. The architecture in each room will actually have you enjoying watching paint dry (if you decide to paint?). The Green Giant is welcome with rooms that are large and high-ceilinged. A grandiose conservatory of almost all glass was added in 2001 to allow for a spacious area to enjoy stunning views of the Detroit River. The open concept kitchen has been completely updated with a center island, granite counters and stainless steel appliances. The formal dining room is a triple threat as you'll be enjoying company, a delicious dinner and picturesque water front views. The home has 3 fireplaces, 2 stair cases and 1 unforgettable vibe. Another kitchen has been added to the 2 car attached garage. Bonus space comes in the form of the detached garage in the back of the property. Exit through the living room door or the convenient Bilco basement doors to get to the private patio in back. You may feel like meditation is in order as the soothing waterfall pond greets you as you enter the home from the side porch. Come see this historical legend in all it's class & beauty today!
