Tour a historic US $ 2.37 million mansion owned by Albert Kahn in Ann Arbor. was designed
ANN ARBOR – For $ 2.37 million, just minutes from the University of Michigan campus, you can own a historic mansion designed by one of the most famous architects in the area.
Located on 2101 Hill Street in Ann Arbor Hills and designed by Albert Kahn in 1913, the house is a 7,100 square foot lesson in classic Georgian Revival symmetry. The seven bedroom, seven bath mansion offers modern conveniences including an updated kitchen, expanded lower level garage, walk-in closets, and updated heating and cooling.
The red brick and copper roof of the house is neatly separated from the circular driveway in front of it by evenly spaced windows and dormers that surround a large entrance. The front facade of the building is supported on both sides by a matching veranda to the east and a three-season room to the west.
Inside, guests are greeted by a large foyer with a master staircase and a similarly symmetrical floor plan. On the first floor there is a music room, study, dining room and modern kitchen, while the wings of the second floor contain the bedrooms, including a master bedroom with a walk-in closet and a modernized bathroom.
The top floor has a playroom and another living room with views of the property from the dormers and large semicircular windows at either end.
On the lower level you will find a fitness room, a wine cellar and the underground car park, which can be reached via a separate driveway.
The house was built in 1913 for University of Michigan professor George Patterson and his wife on land that was previously an orchard and later belonged to the Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity. It has since been owned by three other families and has two acres of mature trees and gardens.
The 2.15 hectare property is spacious and has climbing plants, gardens and a unique stone fruit cellar built into a hill in the back yard.
