59 Lake Shore Rd

It’s believed to be an original Albert Kahn mansion built in 1892. This Victorian beauty still holds so much of its original character and detail, but with today’s modern lifestyle starting with a Generac Generator system. Many improvements throughout this spectacular home include: refinished hardwood floors, new dishwasher, renovated primary bathroom, renovated guest ensuite bathroom, new “Smart” Bryant furnace for the main floor, new furnace for the third floor, installed a whole home aroma system, replaced burners on main floor fireplaces, new patio door, new Anderson windows (preserved the lead glass windows in the dining room & main staircase), new roof, new gutters, and new garage doors. This three story gem features a gourmet kitchen, stainless steel Wolf appliances, with a huge island and plenty of cupboard space; it’s a chef’s dream kitchen in all of its beauty. The first floor office, which is located in the turret features beautiful bench seating, wood floors and a spectacular view of the patio and grounds. On the third floor, you will find more than enough space for a studio apartment with the bedroom, living space and work space, all in one. If you look out the Northeast windows, you can see Lake St. Clair. All of this sits under one roof, on nearly one acre, all fenced in with a wrought iron gate. This home has too many features to list. You must see for yourself, the grandeur that it offers; an original beauty right on Lake Shore Drive.
