Chateau du Lac, Estate of the Day
$29 million may not turn heads in parts of California or New York but it's news in Wisconsin. Chateau du Lac in Ellison Bay, Wisconsin is the biggest and the most expensive home for sale in Wisconsin history. The home is more than 35,000 square feet and sits on a limestone bluff overlooking Lake Michigan. The 100-acre estate also includes a guest house, a separate studio house, and a separate beach house with steps that lead to a sun pier on the shores of Lake Michigan.
The main house opens with a formal two-story foyer with dual staircases. The main floor alone has a formal great room, bayside parlors,a 14-seat Art Deco cinema, custom kitchen, formal dining room, morning room, pub room, garden room, a two-story library and an indoor pool and whirlpool. On the second floor, the master suite is bigger than many homes at 5,000 square feet and consists of seven rooms. A gallery connects the master suite with the northern wing which includes a guest parlor, a galley kitchen, and three additional private bedroom suites with full baths. The home is being sold with all of the furnishings including antiques and paintings for your $29 million. Too bad there aren't bigger pictures on this one.
