This $1.79 million Ann Arbor mansion has a lagoon fit for a tiger king or queen — let’s take a look


Hey, all you cool cats and kittens. Those who have mainlined the Netflix phenomenon Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem, and Madness know that owning 1-90 tigers requires space. Like, a lot of space. Look no further than this 7,912 sqft custom-built home, which sits on a two-acre site in Ann Arbor Hills. The estate boasts 5 beds, 5 baths, and a whole mess of luxury features ripped straight out of Joe Exotic's wet dream. Originally listed last year, this home's price has been recently reduced by a whopping $200k, meaning you're just $1,795,000 away from being the big cat on campus.

If you're looking for a massive estate to house your multiple spouses a la Doc Antle or Joe Exotic, this house has the square footage. Need some major closet space to store all those cat prints and flower crowns? It's got that, too. How about a master suite with a bathtub fit for a partially clothed interview segment? You bet!

In addition to a massive art deco foyer, 18-foot living room ceilings, professional-grade kitchen, master suite, recreation room, wine storage, billiards room, sauna, and three-car garage, the heart and soul of the property is undoubtedly its water feature. Perhaps the most exotic and eye-catching feature is the home's incredible heated pool with 90,000-gallon connected pond, complete with waterfall and hot tub. Needless to say, this property is screaming for a homebuyer who will use the space to its full potential, which we pray is making tiger-themed music videos.

Reminder: There are more tigers in captivity than there are in the wild, and that really sucks. Owning exotic animals in Michigan is illegal and, well, even if it wasn't, it's just downright disgusting. So don't do it. And please don't feed your estranged husband to your tigers if you own some already.
