Beauty needs to be in the eye of the beholder with this one. The original listing read like something out of architectural digest when it described the mansion. Originally on the market for $2.2 million, and then dropped to $1.9 million, the home sounded amazing except for one small detail. The home was completely unfinished.

The listing popped up on Realtor.com, and it was the combination of the architecture and the unfinished business that caught my eye. Without any takers for quite some time, the estate is heading to auction. with bids starting at $1 million.

Anyone interested in giving some serious TLC to this place needs to be ready to take on a serious project. The potential is there without a doubt, but this home is going to need some skill, time, and most of all, money.

The home is designed by award-winning architectural firm, DesRosiers, and sits beautifully on 35 acres behind a gated drive. Of course, the estate comes with all the usual suspects of a pool and guest house, but the design is spectacular.

Construction originally started in 2000 on the home located on 17½ Mile Road in Marshall Township. According to Mlive, after a fire 4 years ago, the home was sold. The new owners were all in with a vision of bringing a dream to reality, but due to financial issues, the home is once again for sale.

At a total of 15,080 sqft of designed luxury living, it is the massive rotunda that will blow you away. The four-level estate features a glass rotunda that is like nothing you have ever seen in a residential home. The plans also call for a spiral staircase, glass elevator, playroom, and even an art gallery. Well...that was the plan at least.

It was to be a piece of estate royalty once finished, but that's the problem, it's not finished. Not even close being honest. The home is basically framed in, with some windows, and lots of exposed wood. You really have to use your imagination when viewing it.

The home is being offered by the  New York-based Paramount Realty USA. According to their website, the deadline for any interested buyers to make a bid is 4:00 p.m. on  Thursday, October 19th.

This mansion is really a true "unfinished love story", and it could be someone's happily ever after if they have the money to spend. If you're ready to bid on this dream home in the making, you can get all the details here.
