A magnificent, one of a kind waterfront property situated on a most desirable stretch of the Detroit River, with spectacular views of Belle Isle and the river.
This home is not just a residence, but a stunning work of art. 5656 Riverside Drive East is the culmination of one individual's passion for creating an exquisite and truly unique residence. The evolvement of the design of this home was a passion project, with years spent customizing every feature of the home and landscape.
A thoughtful blend of European, Mexican and North American design captivates the senses throughout. Inspired by the owner's travels around the world, he brought home not only a vision, but also imported many of the exotic hand crafted finishes found in the residence. Moroccan panels, hand made terra cotta tiles, ledge rock walls and archways, pine casings and baseboards, Romanesque limestone columns, leaded and stained glass, hand carved Cantera stone, and hand carved reclaimed pine doors and beams abound. Custom textured walls and ceilings offer an antique warmth and are evocative of a Tuscan villa.
Exceptional craftsmanship and thoughtful planning are evident throughout. With an open floor plan and large principal rooms, this residence truly lends itself to luxurious living and entertaining. The home is bathed in natural light, ushered in by floor-to-ceiling windows and skylights. Most notably, a massive atrium skylight runs the length of the home, from the grand front entrance to the rear walk-out.
This sprawling riverfront estate offers resort-like outdoor living with a sunken saltwater swimming pool with three waterfalls and a whirlpool. The grounds also include a riverfront sitting area with a gas fire pit. Two roof-top terraces offer stunning panoramic views of the river. A banas stone patio and custom pergola made of reclaimed pine house an outdoor dining area with a built-in barbecue. For boating enthusiasts there are two docks and a boat lift that can accommodate a 40 ft boat.
