Maureen Feighan, Detroit News, December 11, 2014 (A restored home in Boston-Edison)
The first time Jean McLemore saw the former Edward Fisher mansion in Detroit's historic Boston-Edison neighborhood, she didn't swoon, declare the house would one day be hers or start envisioning future dinner parties.
Driving by the house after looking at another property in the area, the former middle school assistant principal simply told her husband, Andrew McLemore Sr., "That interests me."
It's not surprising why. The 10,000-square-foot estate built in an Italian Renaissance style with 11 bedrooms and 9 bathrooms is incredibly interesting. Originally built in 1923 for Edward Fisher, one of the seven Fisher brothers who founded the Fisher Body Company, the house is a beautiful composite of lovely architecture, art and decor. Every detail, from moldings to doors to light fixtures, has been carefully considered.
