Awesome castle building – former residence, former bed and breakfast. Architect: Louis Kamper, 1898. Style: crazy ass castle !

530 Parkview southeast of East Jefferson in the prestigious Berry Subdivision.

It looks like Honest John’s restaurant is occupying the carriage house as evidenced by their vehicles parked in the back.

  • Wow Jaime – that sounds like an incredible place to get married and have a party !

  • I got married here in on February 14, 1994 when it was The Blanch House. It was an amazing venue and we had it for the entire place to ourselves for 2 days, it was quite a time!

  • A masterpiece! God bless our urban castles!

  • oh wow, yeah i almost forgot about this place. never did get a good look at it, thanks.

  • You know, the more I look at this beauty, the more it is crying out to be done in LEGO. You’d have to use a significant amount of castle parts in this build, though.

  • This old dame is akin to the Whitney and the Hecker House (Smiley Bros) on Woodward. Should be treated as such, but the hood doesn’t support that yet.

    Back in the day, the guy who lived here could walk out his back door, step on his yacht and sail all the way to the ocean via the Great Lakes system and the St Lawrence Seaway. Pretty damn cool for back in the pre-jet age.

    That has Hecker and Whitney beat by a long shot.

  • Oh God, PLEASE don’t let this become the next Slumpy.
