(A wonderful home from the 2008 Holiday Home Tour)
Charles and Gloria McEwen had already put a bid on another house when their real estate agent called. She said they had to see a three-story Italian Renaissance mini-mansion in Detroit's historic Boston-Edison neighborhood that had just gone on the market.
"We're on our way out of town," Gloria McEwen recalls telling the agent.
The agent insisted. So they went by to see what she was so impressed with.
"The moment we walked in, both of us knew this was it," says McEwen, a retired teacher. "We just could see a lot of potential."
