How much would this mansion cost in your area?


Real estate, casino, broadcasting, cable television, and international trade executuve Don Barden passed away following a battle with  lung cancer in Detroit in 2011.

Barden is pictured below with his wife Bella and boxing great Tommy Hearns.

n 2010, Black Enterprise magazine ranked Barden Companies as the 10th-highest-grossing black-owned company, with $405 million in revenue. While Barden never won the rights to develop a casino in Detroit, despite a plan to partner with Michael Jackson on the project, he did become the first black owner of a Las Vegas casino. He also sold a business to Comcast for more than $100 million.

Barden left behind a 7,700 square foot mansion, with six bedrooms, four full bathrooms and two half bathrooms, an in-ground Olympic sized pool, a grand staircase, and a sun room. I

Cost of the mansion on the distressed Detroit housing market? $500,000.

What would this house go for in your area?

Powell named the estate Chelster Hall, but Oakvillians call it “the beer house.”     Heres how it compares to other mansions in the area:
