5 Metro Detroit Resort-Type Houses Guests May Never Want To Leave By Beth Dalbey

METRO DETROIT, MI — If your must-have list includes swimming pools and other spa amenities, plush home theaters, an elevator that delivers you steps away from a sandy beach, game rooms, wine cellars and multiple bedrooms, be warned: Your guests may never want to leave. Patch’s real-estate partner lists several that your friends and family may decide are perfect for a “staycation.”

You’d have to be ridiculously rich to afford the featured property, a $10,550,000 resort-like home at 2766 Turtle Bluff Drive, Bloomfield Hills. Technically, the sprawling 14,500-square foot home is a single-family home, but it’s built like an Italian villa resort property.

The tranquil pool, extensive terraces and lounges, sauna, movie theater, bar, and indoor and outdoor fireplaces make it an entertainment paradise. You’ll have plenty of room for your guests with six bedrooms, seven full baths and two half baths.

Here are four other homes your guests may never want to leave.

Listing for $8,500,000, this estate at 5339 Trillium Court in Orchard Lake was custom-designed by Lou Derossier. Set on a hilltop, it has an elevator down to a tunnel that opens to terraces and walkways to a sandy beach. The all-stone home has balconies and rooftop lounge areas that offer spectacular views of Upper Straits Lake. Most rooms offer the same vantage point.

This 9,296-square-foot, five-bedroom home with seven full baths and two half baths is made for entertaining. The lower level features a massive recreation area, family room, bar area and theater.

This home at 984 Lake Shore Road in Grosse Pointe Shores lists for $8,195,000. With 13,000-plus finished square feet, four bedrooms, a theater, gym, spa, bars, and pool and cabana, it not only offers every recreational amenity you’re looking for, but also a great view of Lake St. Clair.

It’s a “smart house” with leading edge technology, and all the decor and furnishings come with the house. 

This $4,295,000 Wing Lake estate at 5735 Forman Drive in Bloomfield Hills features an outdoor pool area with an infinity edge pool and hot tub complemented by waterfalls. The pool lounge has a full kitchen, and when your guests arrive, you’ll be able to select a bottle of wine from a large-capacity cellar in the lower level, where there’s more entertainment space, a kitchenette and wet bar.

You can keep your guests’ valuables safe in the large office, which has a fireproof closet. An elevator offers access to all three floors, including upper-floor bedrooms. There are three bedrooms in the 10,325-square foot house, including the spacious master suite with a grand entry, sitting room, dual fireplace, morning bar, his-and-her master baths and walk-in closets.

Our final wow-worthy property is a $3,590,000 estate at 62 Pine Gate Drive in Bloomfield Hills. The 12,549-square-foot, six-bedroom home with seven full and three half baths is considered one of the most prestigious and exquisite in Bloomfield hills.

Guests will be immediately impressed by the grand foyer, sweeping staircase and soaring ceilings. There’s a second kitchen in the walkout level of the in-law loft on the property.
