Located on historic Kenwood. Built 1925 on the original 42 acres grounds of the historic Convent of the Scared Heart, this handsome chateau is set amidst Grosse Pointe's finest estates. During the early to late 1880's, the nuns of the convent planted maple trees in paired row to provide a serene and private lane for the evening recreation and meditation. This historic allee of trees known as the Nun's Walk leads from the neighboring private Grosse Pointe Academy on Lake St. Clair to the top of the glacial moraine known as Ridge Road and graces the lawns of the homes located on the north side of the street.
