If you've been looking for an immaculately kept Italianate-style mansion within Detroit city limits, you're in luck.

The home at 918 Boston Street in Detroit is the former residence of Berry Gordy Jr., you know, the guy who founded Motown Records. 
It's been on the market since last June, so maybe the sellers will be motivated to accepts low ball offers on the 10,500 square foot home.

Check out more photos of the property here.

According to a listing on annarborhomehub.com, the home was built in 1917 and sits on 2.2 acres and has two adjacent buildings — a 4,000 square foot poolhouse complete with a two-lane bowling alley and a billiards room and a 1,100 square foot carriage house over a five car garage.
The grounds itself boasts 10 bedrooms, nine bathrooms, a solarium, a library, and an enormous chef's kitchen. Throughout the home you'll find coffered ceilings, leaded stained glass doors, quarter sawn oak paneling, teak wood floors, bronze-encased stained glass windows, and first floor laundry.
