Kuzzo’s owner and former Detroit Lion Ron Bartell puts Palmer Woods home on the market — let’s take a tour


You could enjoy some chicken and waffles or watch the big game from the comfort of this contemporary California-style mansion located in Palmer Woods.

OK — so you're not limited to those activities — both of which are likely this homeowner's top contenders for best ways to spend a Sunday — if you buy this chic $995,900 million home owned by former Detroit Lions cornerback and current proprietor of Kuzzo's Chicken and Waffles. Bartell, 38, told The Detroit Free Press that the reason for the sale had everything to do with size. "This house is too big for one guy alone," Bartell said. In other words, this home is a major touchdown. Boasting five bedrooms. 4.5 baths, and 5,075 square feet of living space, Bartell's home is meticulously maintained, updated, and offers spa-like suites, stained glass door panels, and an atrium foyer. The home, built in 1965, has some era-specific design details like a sunken living room that features a contemporary fireplace, and wood-paneled accordion doors.
