That is a nice home, but in a challenging part of Detroit to sell (W Boston Blvd, Detroit, MI 48202

This fine example of the Italian Renaissance Revival architectural style Boston Boulevard home was built in 1912 for the president of an early Detroit automotive company (Charles Lambert, Regal Motor Car Company).In 1918 it was bought by Ossip Gabrilowitsch, who became the conductor of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. It was the presence of Gabrilowitsch that caused local leaders to erect the city's acoustical gem, Orchestra Hall. The other was his wife, Clara Clemens, the daughter of Mark Twain, and a contralto in her own right.

The home next door is 7 beds 4.5 baths 6,185 sqft SOLD: $172,000 on 11/14/14 Lot: 0.3 acres Single Family Built in 1914

Another home in the same block 5 beds 6.5 baths 3,500 SOLD: $71,000 on 12/19/14. People in California pay more than that for cars.

I think the future is modular luxury homes. Homes that can be constructed and deconstructed in room size modules and moved to any location.

Anyway, I see no reason why it couldn't be done. And in any style of home, mix and match.

The closest thing I know is specific home designs, but not true modular luxury buildings. You have to have a method to pull them apart in small units, put two or three units on a flatbed, and haul it to a new location. A luxury home could be made up of 10 to whatever number of units with a goal of being able to disconnect and move even a large mansion in a couple days.

You also need a way to customize exteriors and interiors with removable bits, somewhat like lego technology.

Then the future is whole house stealing.

The heat and instability of Dubai might as well be enjoyed in luxurious settings.

I have to figure that building an aquarium is cheaper than $3 million. this one is big enough so the owner can swim with the fishes

I can't imagine what maintenance would cost on a place like this.



It sort of needs naked women.
