This sprawling mansion in the heart of Detroit is said to be the largest private home in the Detroit Metro area, and it's currently for sale for just under $7 million.

Big Price Drop

While the home is still in need of a little TLC, there have been some major structural improvements in recent years like new windows, a new roof and gutters, and all new electrical.

The 32,000-square-foot home was previously listed in May of this year for $9 million and has since been slashed to $6,999,000.

Detroit's Largest Home Has a Long, Rich History

The historic Bishop Gallagher Home was built in the 1920s for the Archdiocese of Detroit. The 62-room home is considered the most significant house in the Palmer Woods district. It was built for the Fisher brothers for Bishop Michael Gallagher of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Detroit.

Bishop Gallagher lived in the home until his death in 1937. Subsequent archbishops have occupied the home as well and in 1988 it was sold to Detroit Pistons star John Salley. Salley owned the property until 1995 when he sold it to Bishop Wayne T. Jackson of Great Faith Ministries International.

Salley has commented that selling the iconic home was the biggest real estate mistake of his career.

Salley's Party Pad

Salley says that while he owned the home, he had several family members living with him and thew many parties that were attended by some of the entertainment industry's biggest stars.

The listing is being handled by Amanda K Uhlianuk of RE/MAX Complete.
