Mansion Tuesday: Grosse Ile With a River View is Available

22220 E River Rd, Grosse Ile Twp, MI 48138

Mansion Tuesday at the Downriver Homes and Real Estate Blog frequently looks at places in Beverly Hills or New York City, places owned by celebrities like Nigella Lawson, Brandon Inge,  Tom Hanks, Drew Barrymore, or Frank Sinatra.

This week, we're going local.  This place is on Grosse Ile, right here in Downriver, Michigan.  Located at 22220 East River Road, it offers a great view of the Detroit River and Canada.  Watch the freighters go by from the comfort of your living room.

Why, there is even a boat dock for your yacht right on site.

Kitchens are important, and we have to admit that this one is only adequate (at best) for something like this.

Five bedrooms, four baths and a half bath, 5,056 square feet.  Of that, about 2,400 is the finished lower level/basement.  The asking price is $1, 195,000.

My cursory research on the internet tells me that the house was apparently built on spec by a contractor, who is also the listing agent.  His name is Timothy A Grossklaus.  The home was built in 2007 and did not sell at this price in 2010.  Now it is back on the market.
