    I really like the exterior minus the arches near the garage…completely pointless and it throws off the classical lines. I like the inside a lot. However, something tells me the professional photographs make this place look a lot better than in real life. But from what I see, it looks good.

    Tringali does great work and so does Des Rosiers.
    This is a beautiful home and it is in Franklin, so it should sell and probably realtively close to it’s asking price.

      From your lips to God’s ears, Venom.

      It’s an absolutely beautiful home, and is decorated in perfect keeping with it’s architecture. However, for over 10,000 sq. ft., ONLY four bedrooms is absurd! Six AT LEAST….what if you’ve got just two kids? Each of them get’s their own suite, but your guests, either short-or-long term, are SOL? Ridiculous. Franklin is a lovely area for sure, but I do not at all see asking price happening. This is MICHIGAN….and we’ve still got one of the 10 highest unemployment rates and abysmal real estate markets (especially high-end) in the entire country. Reality SUCKS in this situation.

    Nice. The two story library looks gratuitous, but interestingly enough, the only thing I don’t like about it (at least from the pics) is the plain old asphalt driveway. I’m sure they could have been a little more creative than that.

    I’d REALLY love more pics, because I don’t see a single thing I don’t like here. There’s something really wonderful about a well-done tudor in my opinion, and this one looks fabulous. I do like the two-story library, even if it is a little cliche in high-end houses. The decor is very traditional and fits the home well I think, and although 2001 was not that long ago, I think everything about the home is aging very gracefully as its 10th birthday approaches. The home is well sited too, I like how it’s enveloped in trees but still seems to get ample natural light, it’s a very private feel, and one that I think suits this type of home well. Even the price seems fairly reasonable. I certainly wouldn’t mind seeing the front of this place as I make my way up the driveway each evening.

    I think this is lovely. Like Daniel said, I don’t like the garage wing. Like Mak said, I’d prefer it to have a cobblestone or brick driveway. But still, it’s lovely.

    I think this home is FANTASTIC…perhaps because I spent the first 20yrs. of my life in England! I would probably improve the driveway, and put in an elevator because I have difficulty with stairs (gettin’old!) but nothing bothers me about the home. Just wish I had a spare $4.5 million… 😉

    I think it has great classical lines. I think the stairway looks like it comes from a much older home, and I mean that in a good way. I like the use of high ceilings but not too high and without using those stupid upstairs balconies. These ceilings are just the right height. And I like the library.

      Just binged it. Well sited on the lot. Lots of privacy and the driveway looks like it has a great approach to the front of the house. Looks like there is a pond or something in the front yard. Power lines running right behind the house.
