Have a look at this incredible 15,000 square foot lakeside mansion on Mullett Lake in northern Michigan.
Let me just warn you: jaw surgery may be necessary after viewing this home!
A realtor friend in northern Michigan sent me the listing which just went live this month. He describes the house as a “Great Gatsby-esque masterpiece“. Now I know Great Gatsby references are all the rage lately, but there really is no better way to describe this home. And yes, it is a private home.
The 10 bedroom, 15 bathroom house has sensational lake views and many, many impressive features – so many that I will only try to mention a few here.
The gated property is very private, located down a paved lane on 14 acres of beautiful woodlands. All of the home’s windows display views of either the lake or the forest.
Check out the great room [below]. At 1,400 square feet it is larger than many single family homes!
There’s a corner office nook for those who like to be distracted by clear blue lake views:
If the great room didn’t make you go wow… then have a look at the grand staircase:
With the ornate newel post lamps, lavish molding, and pressed tin ceilings, you could be forgiven for thinking this is a 19th century historic estate built for some titan of the Gilded Age.
In reality, this home was built in 1990, not 1890.
Many of the bedrooms are fit for a Victorian Queen…
The millwork in this house is incredibly intricate.
The kitchen is probably the most humble room in the house:
Rolling ladder? Tin ceilings? Shelves that go UP TO the ceiling? Check, check check.
Those with more masculine tastes will appreciate the rich wood-paneled den:
And I have to point out the carved animal brackets:
(A great alternative to mounted dead animal heads!)
And the rooms just keep coming…
I’m only displaying a portion of the rooms here for brevity’s sake.
Outside in the well-kept yard there are several unique structures.
If you need a little extra space for guests, check out the gazebo-like guesthouse:

There is not a detail overlooked on this entire property.
In addition to several out-buildings and an attached garage, there’s also a free-standing 10 car garage:
