A hunter’s paradise, called the Granot Loma, and the largest log-cabin lodge in America still waits for its buyer. The property was listed a few years ago for $40 million and can now be yours for a mere $19.5 million – a discount of more than 50%.
Built between 1919 and 1923 by financier Louis G. Kaufman, Granot Loma is set on a peninsula in Lake Superior just north of the city of Marquette, Michigan.
Granot Loma is a 26,000 Square foot log cabin listed in the National Register of Historic Places. It has 50 rooms, a 3,000 gallon hot tub, an indoor boathouse and a private harbor. The property includes a private island, and over 1 mile of private Lake Superior beach front. There is also a farm complete with an apple orchard and 13 separate buildings. A total of 415 acres of beautiful, private, Northern Michigan real estate.
LG, as Kaufman was known, built the estate to rival the wooded retreats that became as built by the Gilded Age magnates in the Adirondack Mountains of upstate New York. “Hollywood legends such as Fred Astaire, Mary Pickford and George Gershwin ‘camped’ at Granot Loma,” according to its website. The tennis court is designed by legendary player Bill Tilden. In the 1970s, Mohammed Ali visited the property and attempted to purchase it in order to turn it into a boxing camp.
