Two great White Stripes items via Laura Scene:
Jack White has officially wiped his hands clean of his former hometown of Detroit, MI. (He currently hangs his hat in Nashville, TN.) He has now put his house in the D on the market, the historic 1731 Seminole, with an asking price just under a million dollars: $930,000.00.
The house is beautiful and well-maintained, containing many of the original details of the house. The expansive house features a laundry room, attic, library, sunroom, formal dining room, full dressing room, and a Herring-Hall-Marvin Walk-In Safe. One of the hidden treasures of the abode is a large ?secret garden? courtyard with a Koi Pond in the center.
Koi Pond! Cool.
I bet the house is like, all red and white stripes! Ha ha… !
