One of the grandest homes in one of the most exclusive neighbourhoods in America will be heading to absolute auction on October 28, 2014 with Grand Estates Auction Company. Located on the shore of Lake St. Clair, 15 miles north of downtown Detroit, Michigan, it was custom built in the style of a 16th century French chateau. This masterpiece strikes a perfect balance between elegance and intimacy, combining palace-sized rooms and opulent custom finishes with modern comforts and play zones for the entire family.
The main level is dedicated to impressing the most distinguished of guests. It starts the moment you walk through the soaring, two-story foyer into the formal living room with its stunning Rococo-style fireplace and 21 vertical feet of leaded glass windows overlooking the lake. The dining room is equally jaw-dropping: 36 feet long, with a table that can expand to seat 26 guests. The gourmet kitchen is well able to cater the banquet with state-of-the-art appliances, two sinks and two islands.
The terrace walk-out level is the fun zone. Here the family can splash in the indoor pool, relax in the indoor spa, watch a movie in the theater while nibbling snacks made in the full lower level kitchen, shoot some pool in the game room, or rejuvenate in the wellness center with exercise, a massage, sauna or steam. Walk through the terrace doors and you come to the outdoor play area with pool, tennis and basketball courts and a putting green complete with bunker.
On the upper level, the master suite pampers the owners with unparalleled luxury and convenience, from the fireplace sitting area to the spacious walk-in closet/dressing room to the opulent master bath. All five guest bedrooms have en-suite baths and private balconies, including the separate carriage house apartment.
