Nothing says "cozy cabin" like 26,000 square feet. All jokes aside, the most expensive house in Michigan just went up for sale — and it does bring a healthy dose of "cozy" to the table, along with its massive square footage. It's just the kind of log home we'd love to buy if we happened to ever win the lottery.
The house is made from Oregon pine, cement and stone, and features 23 bedrooms, 12 bathrooms and a top-of-the-line kitchen modeled after one at the White House. Other special features? A game room, card room, steam room, gym and wine cellar — and that's just inside. Outside, the house looks out to its own pool, guesthouse, private harbor, marina and boathouse.
But it's not the amenities that make this $40 million (yes, $40 million) stunner so special. Dating back to the early 1900s, the Granot Loma boasts an impressive history.
Built by over 400 craftsman over the course of four years, the home was designed to rival the getaway retreats built by the powerhouses of the time, like the Astors, Rockefellers, Guggenheims and Vanderbilts. In its nearly 100 years, the house has hosted Hollywood legends, sports stars and socialites, and in 1987, a Chicago-based bond trader bought the house and restored and upgraded it to its current state. The listing, first reported by Curbed, is being marketed by Northern Michigan Land Brokers.
