Its breakfast room rises to second-story windows. Its theater feels like a small cathedral. It was the passion project of one of southeast Michigan’s large luxury home builders, especially the wife in the couple. The home’s second owner, a friend of the first, says she even clashed with the architect, Dominick Tringali, known for flashy, ornate work, to make things better, more special.
