EXQUISITE historic estate located in the heart of Palmer Park, situated directly on the DGC golf course with an unprecedented view. This home was originally designed and built by József Galamb, a Hungarian engineer, best known for his crucial role in designing and developing Ford's Model T and Model M. As an engineering genius, Galamb utilized his expertise and innovative mind to create the most coveted residence in all of Detroit. Every room in this mansion was designed with intent, and no two rooms are the same shape or size. The plaster walls and ceilings throughout the home, along with the plaster trim, offer a living experience unlike any other, largely due to plaster's durability and soundproofing, fireproofing, and insulating capabilities that made it popular with the ancient Romans and Egyptians. The jaw dropping, handcrafted woodwork throughout the entire home is custom stained, much like the textured walls and ceilings. The custom wood doors, doorknobs, mouldings, and flooring were imported from Hungary, along with the full built-in bar in the basement. The energy efficient steam heating system boasts radiators with custom covered in-laid wood pieces that act as decorative window seats and features new boilers (2019). Central air was installed in the home in 2002, and a new compressor was installed in 2018. The entire HVAC system has been updated. All the leaded glass windows are original and have been meticulously maintained. The home features two walk-in vaults, one of which is cedar lined for furs and is temperature controlled, and four unique fireplaces (basement, family room, primary suite, library). Many of the remarkable light fixtures, including the grandiose chandelier hanging over the staircase, were hand made in Hungary, and are one of a kind. The first floor features a grand foyer with a wrought iron staircase leading up to the sitting area on the second floor, a massive family room, two separate sitting rooms both with sliding glass doors that lead directly into the backyard, one of which features slate tiles imported from Europe, a stunning formal dining room, a quaint breakfast nook, an impressive private library, and a well-equipped chef's kitchen that offers endless cabinet and counter space, as well as a gardening/utility room with a separate entrance. The kitchen also features double dish washers (2023). The second floor boasts 6 bedrooms, most of which have custom closets and built-ins, including the massive primary suite which offers a sitting room and an expansive primary bathroom featuring an 8-person jacuzzi, which, like the additional full bathrooms on this floor, offer custom colored tilework. On the third floor, you'll find an additional bedroom with a cedar lined closet, and a large loft that functions as a conveniently located storage room. The lower level includes a large laundry room, bar and sitting room, living room, billiards room, as well as changing rooms for your guests to change after swimming. The exterior of the home is constructed of blonde brick, hand carved limestone, and offers a striking well maintained slate roof. The home sits on two lots (nearly an acre in size), and the backyard can be best described as an entertainer's dream. Notable features include an Olympic sized (SCM) pool, the second largest residential pool in Detroit, fully surrounded by a private fence with built in speakers, a custom fountain, and an impressive sculpture from the Detroit Renaissance Center, as well as a gated entrance with a separate driveway leading to the four-car detached garage and parking area. The details found throughout this entire home are unparalleled, and simply cannot be overstated. This home was constructed with the best materials in the world with not a single expense spared and is truly one of a kind in every aspect of its existence.
底特律城是美国密歇根州人口最多的城市，美国中西部第四大城市，也是美国加拿大边境线上最大的城市。由于汽车产业的重组与大量裁员，底特律在20世纪末之后流失了大量人口。2013年，密歇根州宣布底特律进入财务危机，但到2014年12月，底特律城已经度过了危机重掌财务。底特律经历了城市化衰退，人口和就业移向其周边地区和其他城市。但到近期，在底特律中心地区，人口正在回升，年轻专业人士和艺术家正在迁入，零售业也在扩展。这样的情况也正在吸引更多新居民和从前的人口从其他城市搬迁回底特律市区、重振的中城和新中心区域。然而一些其他区域仍然低迷不振，房产供大于求。底特律最重要的企业包括通用汽车、Quicken Loans, Ally Financial, Compuware, Shinola, American Axle, Little Caesars, DTE Energy, Lowe Campbell Ewald, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan和Rossetti Architects。底特律市中心的许多企业都是新迁入的，企业从周边地区迁往底特律市中心核心地段的趋势已经非常明显。
