MI Dream Home: Former Kresge family estate in historic Boston Edison for sale | By: Cal Abbo, The Detroit News
A 16,000-square-foot mansion isn't the only impressive feature on the historical Kresge family estate. The property also includes two carriage houses, a playhouse, koi ponds, a rock garden, a tennis court, a greenhouse, a gazebo, several fountains, bamboo groves and a small bridge.
The property is only a few miles from downtown Detroit and is just a short drive to the Midtown museum district or any of the sports arenas.
"It's located at the very keyhole of the Detroit freeway system," Robert Kortze, a member of the Stockton Team at Keller Williams Realty, said. "Only minutes away from I-75, I-94, and I-96, the Lodge and Davidson freeways make suburban shopping within a 15-minute drive."
The mansion includes 14 bedrooms, 10 gas fireplaces, and eight bathrooms, a library, a music room, indoor fountains, a bank vault and a large secret room. The carriage houses can fit up to nine cars in total. Each has a two-bedroom apartment on its upper floor.
