300 East Michigan Avenue, Saline, MI, USA

Front angle of the home on a spring day - the leaves have not yet filled the trees. The Davenport House is a Second Empire mansion, located by itself on a city block at the entrance to Saline, surrounded by mature trees. The house is a two-and-a-half-story frame structure with a slate-covered mansard roof and corner tower. It sits on a cut stone foundation, and the exterior contains ornate bracketry, corbels, lintels, and dormers. Two original carriage barns with slate mansard roofs stand behind the house. On the interior, the woodwork is made from the finest hardwoods - walnut, butternut, and maple - throughout the house. The house still contains antiques purchased at the 1876 Philadelphia Exposition of 1876. The full-length windows are topped with carved interior cornices and the ceilings are decorated with sculptured plaster. (via wiki)
