A $2.5 million sale of a 35,000-square-foot mansion is the largest deal in Detroit in the past decade. The property, formerly owned by Bishop Wayne Jackson, has 13 bedrooms and 14 bathrooms — suitable for Jackson’s family of nine children — according to Mansion Global. Boston-based architects McGinnis and Walsh built the home in 1926 for the Catholic Bishop of Detroit. Marble from Italy and wood from Germany were imported for construction of the grand home. The California buyer bought the house off-market last week. [Mansion Global]
