    Oooohhhhhhhhhhh. Detroit is FILLED with some many wonderful houses from the 1920s. This might be among the best I’ve seen. That tilework!

    Perfect home! The bathrooms are my favorite.

    What a great home with tremendous original features. I love all the beautiful tile work throughout. I don’t think I’ve ever seen blue bricks like they used on the kitchen floor, looks great!

      Anyone have thoughts about that GORGE. rectangular kitchen tile? SURE could be original Pewabic judging the quality by sight; but the, (again GORGE.), color story seems to me to be more recent than antique or vintage. I’m no tile expert, but my guess is that it’s probably contemporary with the VERY nice 80’s kitchen re-do, considering the likely changes to the floor plan at the back, and you can see that the tile is a perfect install around the pony wall.

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen so much Pewabic tile in one home before. This home is a real treasure.

    Oh. My. Gosh. This house is simply delicious. As most of you recall I’m no wall paper fan, but that paper in the dining room is spectacular! Now for all the fantastic tile: that half bath (first one shown, turquoise curtain) tile is so incredibly beautiful as is all the rest in the house. Bachelder? Looks like it, and also the tile on the floor of the large bay with wrap around seating. This is a stunning home.

      As BK Bobb mentioned, the tile is most likely Pewabic, as the factory was in Detroit & still is. Could also be Rookwood tile, but that appears in Ohio homes more often. My vote is for Pewabic.

    If I was looking to relocate to Detroit, I’d buy this house for the tile work alone…..priceless!

    This house has one of the nicest Tudor entry halls I’ve seen. Love the huge window on the stair landing.

    Wow! This one is a stunner. All those beautiful tile floors and woodwork. Love the way its decorated too. It has an almost exotic feel to it in some of the rooms.

  13. Patrick Walker says: 12 comments

    This is why it was called , The Paris of the mid west.

    O M GOSH!! What a marvelous house: the exterior, location, tile, craftsmanship!! Ooh la la!

  15. kmmoore says: 292 comments

    I’m certainly no expert, and I think there have been a few updates here and there, but I just feel like houses in Detroit, from the teens through the thirties are just on A WHOLE OTHER LEVEL. I always get giddy when I see these posts. This one is exceptional.

    When I’m browsing OHD on my IPad, not all of the house shows on the home page. I almost didn’t look, but I saw the Detroit address and had to look. So glad I did. Detroit never disappoints. That fountain below the Juliet balcony on the front of the house is sweet. That was just the first of many wonderful details. I’ve said it before, many times in fact, I love a house with great tile. This house has GREAT tile, and so many other wonderful things. Even some spots of great wallpaper. I can’t believe I just typed that. The blue and cream bathroom with the wallpaper that looks like Japanese wood block? Love it! I’m making notes for my dream house, Pewabic tile and Japanese woodblock wallpaper are now on that list.

    This house just makes me want to walk sideways! Just look at the glorious woodwork, then turn the corner and slam into an 80’s mini-printed wallpaper. Wander around and note lovely tilework, thrill to original fireplaces then purposely unfocus your eyes to avoid the plastic miniblinds. I worship the paneled room with the figure of someone on the wall and actually go down on my knees before the wallpaper in the bathroom. But I need to be re-educated to understand many of the other details.

    What a lovely home! The only thing that would worry me is having a golf ball come flying through the beautiful sunroom!

    I swear this site is going to force me to move to Detroit! One beautiful Tudor after another. This one is one of my favorites!
