This custom $2.3 million mansion in East Lansing is like the ’90’s greatest hits


Things that were hot in 1993: Jurassic Park, Whitney Houston, Frasier, Johnny Depp and Winona  Ryder's breakup, and unironic overalls. Oh, and maybe this $2.3 million mansion in East Lansing, which is basically the very best of '90s interior and architectural design! As if!

Weighing in at 4 beds and 4.5 baths, sprawled through 10,814 square feet on a 1.4-acre lot, this custom White Hills Woods home would have Cher Horowitz totally buggin'.

Large foyer? Check. A three-story glass enhanced staircase? Check. A great room with floor-to-ceiling windows stacked with skylights, a travertine fireplace, and a dining space with a wet bar? Check!

Enter the kitchen, which is totally custom just like everything else in the house: tray ceilings; granite countertops; eating bar; planning center — you know, for plans; Gaggenau, Miele and Subzero selections; and two islands for food prep, serving, or for recreating a scene from Boxing Helena. There's a walk-in pantry, too, also for Boxing Helena fandom.

Like to read books from iconic authors, like Tom Clancy? This home boasts an incredible two-story library nook complete with a ladder. Fast forward (sorry, this bad boy is literally like 7,000+ square feet ) to the master suite, which has what the listing calls a bed-chamber surrounded by windows offering tree-top views. The master suite also has built-in, crazy walk-in closets, a whirlpool tub, a large shower, and a big ol' luxury vanity.

OK — fast-forwarding a bit more here, the walk-out lower level offers an exercise room, indoor hot tub with a fireplace, as well as a media room with a sunken wet bar, a phone booth, and pillars with neon lights so you can turn up the heat on your very own The Joy Luck Club. Full disclosure, we've never seen that movie but it had the word club in the title and when we think neon, we think club and... did we mention it has an inground pool, four-car garage, and meticulous landscaping?
