My husband was absolutely grief stricken Wednesday evening when reports rolled in that Ian Kinsler, longtime infielder for the Texas Rangers, was traded to Detroit for Prince Fielder plus $30 million in cash.
Me? I was wondering whether Kinsler would be selling his University Park mansion at 3516 Greenbrier Drive (pictured above), a 7,777-square-foot (how’s that for luck?) home with five bedrooms and seven full baths and two half baths. Built in 2007, it’s on the tax rolls for almost $3.3 million, but it could easily sell for much more than that.
If he does, I wonder what Kinsler could get for the appraised value of his UP home in the very posh Grosse Pointe Farms?
There’s this stunning French-inspired estate at 992 Lake Shore with five bedrooms, five full baths, and three half baths for $3.9 million. It has adorable chimney pots and an unobstructed view of the lake.
Then there’s 15600 Windmill Pointe, a beautiful red brick traditional with a huge lawn that will be perfect for playing catch with family during home stands. It has five bedrooms, four full and three half baths for $3.875 million.
Another option is 237 Lake Shore, a picturesque 2-plus acre estate with tons of charm and a really cool greenhouse or solarium. It has six bedrooms, seven full and four half baths and is listed for $3.9 million.
If Kinsler wants to go bold and save some money in the process, there’s this cool modern Spanish-style estate that is a total time warp. Built in 1977, this home is completely dated but really awesome with four bedrooms and five full baths with three half baths and priced at $2.2 million.
Which would you choose?
