Ah-ha! It was Colonel Mustard with a candlestick in the library!

Oh, sorry. A virtual tour of this Grosse Pointe Park mansion had us thinking we were in the middle of a mean game of Clue. Either that or we dozed off to the DVD menu for Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby. But seriously, take off your shoes, hold your breath, and do not, we repeat, do not touch anything. This house is a friggin' art museum.

Anyway, this massive $4.75 million colonial revival mansion was built in 1929 by the home's original owner, attorney Hal H. Smith, and designed by the world-renowned architectural firm, Smith, Hinchman & Grylls. The home situated along historic Windmill Pointe Drive has panoramic views of Lake St. Clair with a whopping 200 feet of water frontage and a bluestone patio that surrounds the heated in-ground pool and greenhouse. In addition to the five bedrooms (is that all?) and ine baths, the 14,547-square-foot home has a remarkable two-story library crafted from a shit-ton of select grade walnut and features one of the home's several hand-painted ceiling murals by Andre Sikora.
