This $1.9 million chateau in Grand Blanc has big Marie Antoinette energy — let’s take a tour


Let them eat cake ... or something. Though France might be 4,000-some miles away from Michigan, there's over-the-top, cherub-covered, Louvre-quality, French style right here in Grand Blanc— and it can be yours for the low, low price of 663,333.333 macarons!

Known as Chateau du Parc, this 7-bedroom, 11-bathroom, 14,439 sq. ft. estate is fit for royalty — or the royally mad. No, really. It has silk padded walls, and would have minimalists gouging their eyes out for no other reason than to relieve themselves of the burden of having seen this heavily festooned estate. We're talking decorative moldings, custom wall finishes, hand-carved doors, French doors, intricate ceiling details, antique brick pavers, crystal chandeliers, malachite accented bath fixtures, a hand-bent wood spiral staircase, and marble everything.

But this house is more than just, well, a master suite that would make the Kardashian's feel poor, but the home also features a plushy pink music room, breakfast nook overlooking the pool, a formal dining room, sitting parlor, something called a gentleman's den, two-story library, theatre, exercise room, wine cellar with wet bar, and – pardon our French — a fucking massive indoor solarium. As for the grounds, there are also two apartments with private entrances, a historic barn, and a keeper's house.

Did someone say something about cake?
