Located in the historic neighborhood of Indian Village in Detroit, Michigan, this pristine Colonial Revival offers original charm spread over 6,267 square feet. The 1902 home’s attributes are thanks to a classic design by Albert Kahn, a legendary American architect who is sometimes referred to as the “architect of Detroit.”

The seven-bedroom, four-bath house has been carefully restored to preserve the building’s history, and the listing includes the main house, a second-floor in-law suite, and a two-bedroom carriage house. A grand foyer welcomes guests, while the house also boasts a ballroom, 10-foot ceilings, and an airy feel thanks to plentiful light.

Other original details include leaded windows, period light fixtures, cove moldings, and hardwood floors. The main living room features a fireplace with original tile and book cases, while the formal dining room also includes built-in china cabinets.
