This house was designed by Paul Rudolph and built in 1971.

It was built in 2007-2008. Not 71.

My brothers and I did much of the stonework on this house. It is quite something to behold. Half court basketball court in the center of the home on the lower level. Beauty salon, and the Davidsons bought a house a few houses to the north, tore it down and built a beautiful and rather large home for Mrs. Davidson's daughter, and her husband.

This was designed by Young and Young. The Paul Rudolph was never built.

The house two parcels to the north,, supposedly for Mrs. Davidson's daughter and husband, was also designed by Young and Young. See the links below.

After further review the link that I posted for this home does not match, unless major modifications were made. The two homes are similar their circular circular shapes, but the roofs are clearly different. The Young and Young home, "Bloomfield Hills 09" according to their website, appears to be neoclassically designed, where as 4475 Lahser Road appears to be contemporary, according to the aerial imagery.

US Modernist states that the home was designed by Young and Young (search for 4475 Lahser Road and images of the house pops up), but Young and Young's website does not have a project whose pictures match the home.
