    Curb appeal, then add in all of the great interior details! The natural woodwork, the green kitchen sink, the casement windows, and of course the kitchen & baths’ tiling, etc. 👌🏼

    I can only think of Ross when I see that green sink! This is a fantasy come true. I can’t imagine going with my realtor to see it and the fabulousness that I would experience walking through. I hope to God no one buys it and updates it.

      You didn’t hear me shrieking?

      My thoughts exactly! ;o)
      The saga of Ross lusting after the green sink!

      Probably won’t believe it but I’ve actually seen a photo of a double bowl, single pedestal bathroom sink in this green. I loved it SO much that I hounded every antique market online I could find looking for one. To no avail. It was the most beautiful sink I’ve ever seen. Maybe the one I saw the photo of was the only one in existence.
      This kitchen version is totally dreamy too.

    I see four to-die-for lighting fixtures by the incomparable Beardslee of Chicago.

    The pair of sconces in the LR.

    The DR chandelier. You can also see one here:


    The smaller chandelier.

    Each appears to retain their original glass slip-shades.


    And the rest of the house is amazing, too! I’ll be dreaming’ of green sinks tonight!

    Great house! I pray that the new owners use a light hand. All it needs is maybe some lighter paint colors on the plaster walls.

    The basic architecture isn’t especially impressive, though the details and state of preservation are extraordinary. The woodwork and paneling, ironwork, tile, and period fixtures are all pretty awesome.

    Oh my God, that green sink! Ker-thunk, that’s me fainting away…

    Is that a peacock on the front-door ironwork? (Sorry, I don’t know a more specific term for that!) Whatever it is, it’s lovely. And I didn’t realize those big kitchen sinks came in any color but white; that green is fantastic. And of course I love the bathrooms, also the tiled arch above the stove.

    Love Love Love,
    just splendid!

    Wow how beautiful, if I was redoing a bathroom, I would make it look like the old baths with tile. Its charming and easy on the eyes, compared to the new stuff they are doing these days. Old charm is the best.

      Same here, Karrie — I plan to redo at least one bath in my old house, and the tile bathrooms here are just the look I hope to create with the separate shower and the tub alcove. The old bathrooms really had character and charm.

    That green sink is my kitchen holy grail (along with a vintage stove and fridge, of course). Can’t help but think that a cheerful “jadeite” sink would make dish washing an event.

    I also love this house’s casement windows, the really gorgeous tile bathrooms, and the wonderful stove nook.

      Daughter, I’m pretty sure you can have those sinks refinished in any color you like, so you don’t have to find a green one.

    Great hardware in that one picture. Would have liked to seen more, especially the front door.

    Wow,this is just lovely! Thankfully it has not been molested by HGTV.

    there are just so many cool homes in Grosse Pointe and that entire area, most are very well taken care of, I agree with a comment above using a light hand on this one.

    Beautiful! I wouldn’t change a thing! I hope whomever purchases it does not come in and update/renovate a thing.

    My nightmare would be for someone to take out all the tile in those bathrooms and put in the generic brown tile bathrooms we see so often. Then go on to gut the kitchen and make it “modern”. Please, please, please keep it as it is.
