Brief mention of Harold Turner is made in "Usonian Houses" by John Sergeant. I believe he was trained as a shop teacher, and I don't know how he started building for Frank. Every once in a while one of his homes comes up on the market. Currently 3960 Mystic Valley Drive, in the Township, is for sale. His home was on the east side of Telegraph, near Gilbert Lake. He and his wife used to run the restautant "Devon Gables" nearby. I'm in Birmingham. Can I reach you at the Affleck House or LTU?

And I repeat: what is it about tiny, compressed, amateurish, pixelated photos which get real estate agents so excited? Those look like they were taken on a camera phone. Rolling Eyes

Gene



I have called Lawrence Tech a couple of times to see about touring the house (Affleck) and each time they have told me that it is under renovation and not open for tour at present time. Do you have any idea when or if tours of the house are possible?

Gene Diggs;
What kinf of information are you looking for ? Harold turner built my Grandparents house on Mystic Drive in Bloomfield Hills. I am currently getting my family to dig up picutres of the house from back in the 50's and 60's.
My Grandfather knew Harold Turner through the lumber business and he commissioned the house in 1950 for my Grandparents.

Also would make a great spot to build a new home on this wooded lot in a central location.

That's sooo 2008.

1475 Lone Pine Road (west of Telegraph sits on a hill south side of street)
1470 Clarendon (south of Lone Pine west off Wing Lake Road)

This house was my Grandmothers home until 1969, we lived at 3791 W. Pemberton Rd. just up the street. Turner built our home in 1954-55 when they did own Devon Gables Restaurant. When I returned from Viet Nam in 1970 the property was divided up, when my grandparents lived there, there was no other house like it, I know, I had to cut the grass, take care of the rock garden. The only thing I didn't like was the roof issues, flat roof's can be troublesome. The house did not have a garage, it was a carport. The huge picture windows offered a view to the North. The house was originally Pink in color and in the dining room was a huge mural painted by an artist depicting a Florida scene. The property bordered W. Long Lake Rd and across the street was Andover High School. We knew the Turners well
