A true architectural gem nestled along the East River Road National Historic District, this Gothic Revival styled English cottage was designed by the Detroit renowned architect, Gordon W. Lloyd (The Whitney Mansion, St. James Episcopal Church), and was built in 1859-1860 for the family of Circuit Court Judge Samuel T. Douglass. Also known as "Littlecote", the home has changed ownership only four times with the current owners undertaking the extensive interior and exterior restoration, the tasteful modern-day updating for comfortable living, and the unparalleled property grounds maintenance that can be seen and enjoyed today. The property also boasts almost 200 feet of waterfrontage with a very private retreat at the shoreline. From the parlor's oriel window to the grey-stoned enclosed porch adjacent to the library to the original detailed wood flooring and the exceptional carpentry throughout the interior and exterior, there is undoubtedly no other home resembling its unique splendor.
