This incredibly rare, remarkable property sits on almost half an acre in one of Grosse Ile's most desirable neighborhoods and is one of the original 13 Historical Homes in "Jewel Colony." Build for the executive lifestyle, this 5 bedroom (possibly 6) property boasts a LARGE living room with a gas fireplace, a formal dining room (furniture negotiable), and many original features (such as built-in shelves and cabinetry) that can't be readily found in today's market. Hardwood floors run throughout the main floor and most of the second floor. Quaint gems such as the "Juliet Balcony" and established wisteria that drapes over the pergola are just a few of the romantic elements that welcome visitors as they approach. Throughout the year, the multitude of perennials that surround this corner lot will show their colors, creating a natural, beautiful private enclosure. The current owners have added high end, modern appliances in the kitchen, granite countertops, a stainless steel farmhouse sink, and they've also updated the bathrooms, but they've done their best to keep most elements of the home as historically accurate as possible. The potential 6th bedroom on the main floor could also function well as a home office, den, or bonus room. The full basement is spacious, clean, and even has a natural fireplace. In addition, there is a surprisingly generous amount of storage options that appear in the form of several linen closets, multiple pantries, built-in bookcases and shelves. As an added bonus, the kitchen table that fits perfectly in the breakfast nook will remain with the home. The backyard is perfect for entertaining with it's many spaces dedicated to gathering (yard furniture included) and the sprawling back porch. Rain barrels, a green house, and an outdoor kitchen make it easy to see the sustainability theme. There's even a set up for a chicken coop, (which could be used as a shed) and a pond that has goldfish. With some TLC and "sweat equity" this property could be one for the ages!
