Designed and completed over a 10 year period with over 100 people directly involved in its construction, Dogwood Manor is much more than a home, it’s a piece of art. Built between 1998-2008, the 9,000 square foot 4 bedroom, 7 bathroom Superior Township, Michigan residence sits on 50-acres about 17-minutes from Ann Arbor and was created with one specification standard – no compromise. Every piece of hardware, including; doorknobs, kickplates, and balustrades are cast in bronze with the house symbol, dogwood blossoms. With simply too many features to cover at once, enjoyment and entertainment are the watchwords for Dogwood Manor. Living quarters include a two-storey library, six seat theater, 1,000 bottle wine cellar, 6 heated and cooled garages, in-home 5 stop elevator with access to the tunnel from main house to carriage house, glass walled conservatory built in Italy then cut and shipped to the homesite, and your own private observatory with rotating dome. The owner’s of the home told the Detroit Free Press, “I needed room for my toys,” therefore the property includes a metal-working shop, electronics shop, and a separate building with a large woodworking shop. To make your life simple, the home features a Crestron Smart Home system, and radiant heated floors throughout. Indoor and outdoor space has been carefully thought out to include a two-storey screened porch with heated floors and coffered ceilings. There are no other homes of this quality currently on the market at this price point, in fact it would be near impossible to replicate at this price. It’s on the market for $5,900,000 with Jeffrey Post.
