MLS Public Remarks  EXQUISITE historic estate located in the heart of Palmer Park, situated directly on the DGC course with an unprecedented view. This home was originally designed and built by József Galamb, a Hungarian engineer, best known for his crucial role in designing and developing Ford’s Model T and Model M, who utilized his expertise and innovative mind to create the most coveted residence in all of Detroit. No two rooms are the same shape or size. The jaw dropping, handcrafted woodwork is custom stained, much like the textured plaster walls, ceilings and trim. The custom wood doors, doorknobs, mouldings, handmade (1 of 1) light fixtures and flooring were imported from Hungary, along with the full built-in basement bar. The home features two walk-in vaults, one of which is cedar lined for furs and is temperature controlled, and 4 unique fireplaces. The first floor features a grand foyer with a wrought iron staircase, a massive family room, two sitting rooms, one of which features slate tiles imported from Europe, a stunning formal dining room, a quaint breakfast nook, an impressive private library, and a well-equipped chef’s kitchen, as well as a gardening/utility room with a separate entrance. The second floor boasts 6 bedrooms, including the massive primary suite which offers a sitting room and an expansive bathroom featuring an 8-person jacuzzi. The third floor includes an additional bedroom with a cedar lined closet, and a spacious loft. The lower level notably features a bar, living room, and a billiards room. The home sits on a dbl lot, and features an Olympic sized (SCM) pool, surrounded by a fence with built in speakers, a custom fountain, and an impressive sculpture from the Detroit Renaissance Center, as well as a gated entrance with a separate driveway leading to the four-car detached garage. This one-of-a-kind home was constructed with the best materials in the world with not a single expense spared. See docs for add’l info.
