About This Old House

Visit the Property Flyer here for more information!

Located in the esteemed Palmer Woods neighborhood, on what was the rear acreage of the Woodward avenue country estate of famed Senator Thomas W Palmer, this mansion has seen the “Who’s Who of Detroit” come through its doors. The mansion was built in 1946 for real estate developer Aaron Gershenson. He was known for his shopping center developments which his grandchildren still tend to today. The mansion was then acquired in 1980 by the influential Dr Alma Rose George.

Newly available, the beautiful and largely original 1946 French Eclectic brick mansion boasts a quiet park-like setting. An expansive 1.72 acre in-city lot is surrounded by beautiful homes which include a Fisher mansion directly across the street. You’ll enjoy a formal front entry and staircase, 6 bedrooms, 6 baths, 8665 square ft, servants quarters and rear kitchen area staircase. Relax in a private yard with formal railed patio and coy pond. Leaded casement windows, plaster walls massive chimneys, quoins and classic hipped rooflines help define the French revival design. Also included on the list of amenities is a charming two story attached garage with care taker’s apartment. This home has all the original architectural elements, superior materials and craftsmanship that discerning buyers are looking for. Detroit’s renaissance adds to the appeal.
