How Much is Too Much? Detroit Home Pushes the Limit on Unique Decor
I will agree to each his own when it comes to style and taste, but sometimes I find myself thinking, "what were you thinking?". After checking out this Detroit home listed on Zillow, this is definitely one of those times. Let's just say it take uniqueness to a new decorating level.
Located in Detroit on West Grixdale, in Grixdale Farms, the home is openly described as "one of a kind". Big understatement, trust me. It is also described as being "articulated with painstaking attention to detail and mind-blowing decorative flair." Yeah....mind-blowing for sure. In my opinion, seeing is believing, and this is one home that needs to truly be seen to believe.
Currently, on the market the home referred to as “Lion Gate Estate", is 3512 square feet and has three bedrooms, and four bathrooms. Filled with custom extras and additions, the home also offers up a heated swimming pool with an outdoor shower and a cabana. Adding a little nod to the Motor City, the home has a custom two-car garage with hand-painted automotive murals that are actually really cool. There is also a large basement that has its own entertainment area as well, which is great for parties.
So what makes this seemly normal home so interesting? It's the decor. When you tour the home you can see that the owners have a real passion for Grecian design. Statutes, and we mean of all sizes, are just about everywhere. Countertops, corners, even at the foot of each bed. Statures and stuffed figures surround you everywhere. There is also a strong use of color and iron in other rooms, floor to ceiling, literally.
The living room resembles something the iconic Liberace would have had in his Las Vegas home. Completely done in white with a baby grand piano, I felt like a needed to spill a glass of red wine just to add some color. The stairway to the finished basement may have you questioning if you are entering a dungeon, but only to arrive in a full assortment of colored iron patio sets and an entertainment stage complete with Elvis.(We are pretty sure it's just a cutout, but who's to say).
I could go on, but you really need to see it all yourself. Take a look at all the "Lion Gate Estate" has to offer below, and if you think you've found your dream home it can be yours for $345,000. Just contact the agent, Benjamin Ness, at Clyde Realty.
