Historic Adams Castle sells thousands of items

The Detroit News

In an estate sale that was nationally advertised and locally anticipated, the Adams Castle in Bloomfield Hills opened its doors to the public this weekend, offering a rare look at the 1920s mansion.

Just about everything but the castle itself was for sale including: books, a red-felt pool table, a Fabergé egg, an antique gun, precious china, rugs, tables and clothes, luxury jewelry, and a Steinway & Sons grand piano.

The three-day sale, which included thousands of items, was handled by Everything Goes Estate Liquidations Inc., which is based in Sylvan Lake.

The sale ran from Friday morning to Sunday afternoon at the 32-room castle, which cost more than $1 million when it was built in the late 1920s.

The Adams Castle, at 900 Adams Castle Drive, was built by Harry Stormfeltz and designed by architect Richard Marr. It has 22 rooms (including a pool), 16,270 square feet and sits on 2.24 acres.
