This house is the bomb — and it has a bomb shelter.

Designed by modernist architect William Kessler, a protege of Minoru Yamasaki, this 5,387-sq. ft. West Bloomfield compound pairs timeless elegance and modern angles to showcase the property's peaceful, private, and wooded 6.17 acres. While the stunning and angular 4-bedroom, 4.3-bathroom home does, in fact, have a bomb shelter, which, in 2020, seems like a real real estate necessity, it is but one of the many features that make this Kessler-designed home stand out, including floor to ceiling windows and several skylights, as well as meticulously maintained gardens, reflecting pool, lap pool with pool house, and a heated greenhouse. Also on the grounds, a 1,100-sq. ft. guest house that boasts 2 bedrooms and a 6-car garage.
