Jack White's House, Estate of the Day
It's been a crazy few months for houses for sale by musicians. A commenter on Nikki's Sixx's house led me to discover Jack White's Detroit home for sale (Thanks, Dina). The home is 1721 Seminole, a center-entrance Colonial that is rich in charm and old-fashioned details. The four-bedroom home has beautiful woodwork and formal details including large chandeliers, intricate moldings and original features such as hand-painted wallpaper in the dining room. There is a beautiful old library and a large safe in the hallway. The modern kitchen juxtaposed against an old butler's pantry that includes the original oak ice box.
The master bedroom was hand-painted by Jack White and has a bathroom with the original Pewabic subway tile and a new dressing room. The basement was recently restored and includes a laundry room and new bathroom. Outside there is a secret garden that includes a koi pond and various shrubs.
An article on a Detroit website this summer reports that White recorded the White Stripes' 2005 album "Get Behind Me Satan" in the grand staircase and foyer.
Compared to our usual estate-of-the-day listings, this one can be yours for a song. It is listed at $930,000. After the jump, what's black and white and red all over?
