Inside The $15.9 Million ArtVan Mansion – See How The Other Half Lives [Photos]

It’s the most expensive piece of Michigan real estate on the market today.

Curious as to what $15.9 million will get you? Take a look.

Who doesn’t recognize the name ArtVan? Art VanElslander has created a furniture empire with stores all over the state of Michigan.

His wealth and success is reflected in the 29,000 square foot French Chateau that he and his wife Mary Ann built in Grosse Pointe Shores in 1991. As you might expect, the four acre property is stunning with 265 feet of Lake St. Claire frontage, six bedrooms, twelve bathrooms, an indoor and outdoor pool, tennis court and a stunning floating marble staircase. The Chateau also features a great room with 29 feet tall, two story ceilings overlooking Lake St. Clair. It could be yours. It’s for sale for a modest $15,900,000. I had trouble with all of those zeroes too! That’s $15.9 million.

Don’t think that you can just drop by for a showing. To look around, you must pre-qualify, or just watch the video below.

All of that square footage and all of those rooms would need a lot furniture. Do you think they shopped at Art Van?
