Live in Edsel and Eleanor Ford's Starter House for $645K

Billed as the Edsel and Eleanor Ford honeymoon cottage, this 6-bedroom, 4-bathroom Indian Village jewel is less cottage and more mansion with over 5,500 square feet of living space. Prolific Detroit architect Leonard Willeke, also known many gorgeous Grosse Point homes and for his work on the abandoned Fordson Village, designed the house. Alfred Nygard carved the living room and dining room friezes by hand, and the house has Pewabic tile, hardwood floors, clawfoot tubs, and even stenciling on cabinets (in the servants' quarters) hand painted by Eleanor Ford.
