We were delighted to photograph this impressive piece of Grosse Pointe history. Build in the 1920’s by architect Leonard B. Willeke (who also designed homes for Ford and Hudson families), this 7-bedroom estate boasts exquisite craftsmanship virtually unknown today. Throughout its 10,000-plus square feet, beautiful details abound – from wonderfully ornate custom woodwork in the library and staircase, to leaded glass windows, gothic archways, detailed friezes and the Pewabic-tiled bathrooms. The third floor is home to a ballroom that redefines the term “home theatre”. Here is just a sampling of the many, many photos we took.
This home was the 2012 Junior League of Detroit Designer’s Show House.
22 Webber is listed by Donna O’Keefe from Johnstone & Johnstone. For complete details and to arrange a tour, please visit Donna’s webpage here.
The image below is the butler’s pantry off of the kitchen, a great feature in older homes (and a trend that should return, in my opinion!)
All of the bathroom’s in this home feature breathtaking Pewabic Pottery tiles. Absolutely gorgeous!
The third floor ballroom features a small stage, with doors on each side that lead to dressing rooms!
