A beachfront log cabin hit the Detroit market at $40 million recently.
When you think of Detroit, you often don’t think of high luxury. This property, dubbed the ‘largest log cabin in the world’ has the potential to destroy that assumption. Called Granot Loma, the house is located on Lake Superior, and at 26,000 sq ft, it lives up to the reputation. The original owner was a big wig with General Motors, and built the house in 1923. The structure was built with Oregon pine, cement, and stone and features a huge stone fireplace with an 18-foot mantle (as well as 25 other fireplaces), vaulted ceilings, 23 bedrooms, 13 baths, a solarium, card room, and game room.
No log cabin would be complete without a hot tub though, and Granot Loma’s holds 3,000 gallons, and overlooks the lake and a private harbor.
If you are thinking of buying, don’t even bother looking at the interior, because it looks like an antique store/taxidermy pet cemetery.
This place is best viewed for it’s potential, with a 4-apartment guesthouse, servants quarters, root cellar, and tennis court sitting on 5,000 acres of land.
If you are looking for somewhere beautiful to settle down and have $40 million to spare, Detroit might not be looking so bad after all, right?via ]
