For someone who speaks out against capitalism, Michael Moore certainly has enjoyed a taste of the good life here in Michigan. Take a look inside his former home on Torch Lake which recently sold for just over $4.3 million.
This sprawling home sits on almost four acres of land right on Torch Lake, with about three hundred feet of lake frontage. The home is located at 222 S. East Torch Lake Drive in Central Lake, about 50 miles north of Traverse City.
The Lavish Details
'Opulent' is one word that comes to mind when describing this home. It features seven bedrooms, eight bathrooms, and two powder rooms. There's even an exercise room, likely installed for the convenience of guests.
Speaking of guests, the property also includes a plush guest house. When you take a look at the pictures below, see if you agree: It looks to me like the kitchen in the guest house is nicer than the one in the main house. The bright blue and red cabinets in the main house's kitchen seem to detract from the overall warm, log cabin-like feel of this otherwise beautiful home.
