Kid Rock’s stodgy Detroit digs went up for sale this week. The musician listed the Colonial-style for $2.2 million.
The 1930-built house features a façade with a plantation flourish: an extended roof supported by numerous pillars. The symmetrical design features an extended series of windows; a trio of dormers illuminate the third floor. A Juliet balcony over the entrance helps center the home’s visuals.
Within, the house has much to commend it to the connoisseur of the traditional style. There’s a great deal of warmth via mismatched oak plank floors and partially exposed beams, wainscoting, exposed brick, black-and-white tile, and period and period-style light fixtures. Quite a few ol’ familiar design elements, which collectively make for a cozily predictable living style which culminates in the farmhouse kitchen.
But a few surprises sneak into the 6,000 square-footer, and include a survivor of a tin ceiling, as well as a window niche or two. French doors frequently cite liberation, presenting options for transition, and enhancing the sense of possibility. And tones used to express rooms vary dramatically, with intense warms and soothing cools represented equitably.
There are six bedrooms and 5.5 baths in the house; the master is fairly modest in size and execution, with a serviceable walk-in closet and master bath, and a set of French doors opening onto a private balcony.
