This ‘wedding cake’ house in Grand Blanc is an art deco lover’s dream — and it has a ballroom you could probably roller skate in


Weddings are supposed to be the most important day of many people's lives. It's stressful and exciting and marks the beginning of a new future. Then comes the wedding night. We'll spare you the details on those specifics, but once the honeymoon phase wears off, which it absolutely will, what comes after is years of pain, struggle, arguments, infidelity, and dirty dishes. At the end of many “happily ever after”s is, well, the “D” word. That's right, divorce. Don't get us wrong, we're not cynical and we absolutely believe in true love and the hard work that goes into sustaining it. However, what we're after is something that lasts. Like the “wedding cake” house in Grand Blanc. And for $599,900, it's probably cheaper than the cost of your pending nuptials/divorce!

The 4,464 square-foot Mintor Manor is an art deco lover's old Hollywood dreams come to life. Built in 1937, the home boasts 4 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, and sits on 2.49 sprawling acres, including frontage along Thread Creek. The flowing floor plan and wraparound decks on every floor are but a few of the home's major draws, but it is the ballroom, theater, and bar space on the lower level that seals the deal. Move a few bar stools, install a disco ball, and lace up your roller skates. Marriage is a lot like skating, anyway. You're bound to fall on your ass.
