Historical Architecture of Grosse Pointe – 285 Washington RoadPosted by Kay Agney on
Last week we explored 50 Moross. The property was designed for William E. Moran, in 1914, by Louis Kamper - one of the most noted architects to grace Metro Detroit.
This week we head to another property by Kamper as we travel to Washington Road to visit an historic home located at the foot of the street - welcome to 285 Washington.
The address of this property was originally listed as 4455 E. Jefferson, it was then changed to 17631 E. Jefferson, and finally to 285 Washington. The residence is immense in size and stature and once presented an impressive entrance to one of the most prominent streets in the community. Image courtesy of Walter P.
