Probably one of Grosse Pointes most beautiful homes, 355 Lincoln has a storied history and is looking for a hero to return it to its former glory.
The 8,733 sq ft English manor was built in 1913 and it is one of Grosse Pointe City’s largest and oldest homes. This is a rare gem with sunning woodwork, decorative carved limestone, plaster and multiple grand fireplaces. The house has many graceful rooms and features include a superb library with an 18’ barrel shaped ceiling with a choir loft leading to a balcony, and a ballroom sized living room.
The garden was one of the first in Michigan to be designed by nationally renowned landscape architect Ellen Shipman. Originally from New York Shipman was also responsible for the wonderful gardens at Rose Terrace, 99 Lothrop, and Lake Terrace.
Despite needing significant restoration and renovation, the next owner of 355 Lincoln will have the opportunity to save what is arguably one of the most beautiful and unique homes in the Grosse Pointe’s.
