If you want to start a car collection, this mansion can house 17. If an ample wardrobe is your long suit, the closet here rivals the size of a conventional house — nearly 2,000 square feet.
Exercise? You can pop into the room off your giant closet for a quick round on the stretching machine, treadmill or yoga mats. Or you take the elevator down to the lower level and tackle your fitness goals in your gym full of heavy equipment.
This house in a posh Grand Blanc neighborhood has almost every asset you can think of, and often two of them. Outside it has the usual in-ground pool, including a commercial-grade slide. Then it also has a second in-ground pool — shallow and surrounded by stone balusters — built for little kids.
It has a grand carved room with a heavy oak fireplace as a place to play pool or kick back. Next door it has a smaller round room where folks can gather for poker. All six bedrooms are suites with their own bath and all but one have a fireplace. Fireplaces total 10.
What’s more, at $3.8 million, this is a turnkey house. The price includes the furniture and gym equipment.
One of the biggest homes in Genesee County, the house has 16,543 finished square feet and 20,000 square feet “under roof,” which includes all the heated garages.
This closet runs down both sides of a long corridor, lined with closets and specialty drawers. Hard to believe, but the floor plan shows that corridor is 86 feet long.
All the occupied rooms in the walkout lower level sit at ground level with French doors. It has a large family room with a stone fireplace and a second full kitchen. There’s also a large round gym and a full bedroom suite with French doors and a fireplace.
The house has a 9-foot-square wine closet on the main floor between the kitchen and dining room.
The imposing exterior is brick with liberal limestone accents. Besides four turrets it has a dozen gables and four massive brickwork chimneys.
The rear is lavishly hardscaped with brick and stone patios, the two pools, a hot tub, a fireplace and an outdoor kitchen. Behind that, the view is all trees.
