If you've got an extra $5.5 million lying around, you could own this 6,900 square foot, 7 bedroom, 9 bathroom fortress on Lake Michigan in South Haven.

Growing up in South Haven, I saw a lot of gorgeous lakefront houses, but none quite like this! So I immediately had to google the exact location... I grew up right down the street!

How did I not know this magnificent real estate gem was so close by? Well, it was built in 2013, so quite a few years after I'd moved to GR. But still! You'd think on visits home I would have seen the nearly 6 million dollar mansion being built basically next door.

So exactly how magnificent is it? According to the listing on Sotheby's International Realty, the home at 76776 Thornhouse Ct. in South Haven boasts a private beach, 1400+ square foot guest house, multiple decks and more:

The highest standard of luxury in a magical waterfront setting! One of a kind indescribably spectacular, this exceptionally unique work of art Cape Cod-style main home and 1400+ square foot guest house designed by a renowned Michigan architect/builder is as grand as they come. Set on nearly 5 magnificent acres on just under 300' of Lake Michigan frontage, the showplace 6 bedroom, 7 bath main home and guest house welcome you with a gated circular drive, are privatized by woods, take your breath away with stunning views and open to a private sandy beach.

Magnificent woodwork and detailing abound, with countless awe-inspiring elements that include a towering rotunda, circular dining room, vaulted sky-lit ceilings, 2-story stone fireplace, top-of-the-line kitchen, dreamy master suite with private terrace, extensive decking and abundant windows that invite flooding sunshine. The guest house is just as impressive with post and beam ceiling construction, a family room, amazing culinary kitchen, bedroom, full bath and loft/possible second bedroom. "

Even though nearly 5.5 million might seem crazy expensive, this isn't even the priciest home for sale in West Michigan! According to Curbed Detroit, a home in Montague is going for $8,475,000 and one in Lakeside is listed at $7,200,000.
