Motown founder's former Detroit mansion back on market

- A Detroit mansion, once owned by Motown records founder Berry Gordy, is back on the market.

According to the Detroit News, the 10,500 square-foot home in the Boston-Edison neighborhood is listed for nearly $1.6 million. The home was listed last year for $1.3 million before it was taken off the market.

It sits on 2.2 acres and was built in 1917 by lumber baron Nels Michelson.

Gordy bought it in 1967 and lived there for a few years before moving to Los Angeles. It's now owned by attorney Cynthia Reaves.
