From the same hosts as the last property, this home perfectly embodies the rags to riches story! Abandoned for 7 years, this 1920s home is now restored to unimaginable beauty thanks to the love and effort put in by the best craftsmen Detroit has to offer! “Curbed” featured this property nationally, and it’s also appeared in the Detroit news! The space was completely re-imagined while keeping as many historical details as possible. Take the kitchen, for example, the original leaded windows still let in ample natural light, and new details have been added by the Ohio Amish family who built out the space!

We love the unique photo and video opportunity this venue presents with its plaster details, curved ceilings, and fabulous woodwork. The large modern master bath suite is luxurious, and the perfect mix of the old and new design would make for a beautiful boudoir shoot. Or enjoy lifestyle photos with the impressive dry bar/piano room and sunroom. Take your shoot outdoors with the double lot garden and new backyard patio where you can bask in the sunlight and admire all the flowering plants! This gorgeous 3,595 square foot home is easy to book on Peerspace and is an obvious front-runner for anyone looking to rent a mansion in Detroit!
