This Detroit home once belonged to the London Chop House owner and is listed for $450K


The thing about historic homes is that they can sometimes look like time capsules. That’s the case with this home at 1941 Balmoral Dr. in Detroit’s Palmer Woods neighborhood.

The seven-bedroom home features hand-plastered crown molding, plastered medallion fixtures, and Spanish-style tile work.

It was once the residence of Sam Gruber, who founded London Chop House with his brother Les Gruber in 1938.

The home is presented by Lindsay Shobe of Good Company.
