You, Too, Can Have a Luxury Home in Detroit — If You Have $3 Million

some of the money
Former Michigan State football coach Brady Hoke put his 11,000-square-foot Ann Arbor mansion up for sale — and it’s already in sale pending status.

The home, which is about 40 miles from Detroit, was listed for $3 million and features everything from professional grade appliances in an open concept space to spa-like bathrooms.

The five bedroom, five full bath house also features two half baths and a walk-out lower level, which has a full bar, recreation and workout areas and a waterfall in the backyard.

If that’s too much for you, though, then you can also consider heading to an auction to buy a home that once belonged to a mafia “lieutenant” to the “Godfather” Joseph Zerilli, a Prohibition-era gangster.

The house was built in the 1950s in Gross Pointe Park and was owned by Dominic Peter Corrado. Featuring big white columns out front and a wine cellar, the house heads to auction on June 20, after one more open house on June 14.

Luxury home builders of today often include a number of lavish features designed to make living there more like staying in a resort than owning a home. Considering that the rich and famous often have personal chefs, maids, and others waiting on them, the resort comparison may be an apt one.

Such homes also often come with guest cottages, which tend to mimic the main house in appearance and generally amount to one- to two-bedroom dwellings totaling around 1,200 square feet.

But historical homes aren’t the only ones for sale in the Detroit area. Former Detroit Lions defensive player Ndamukong Suh listed his home in the suburb of Birmingham last month.

The 7,394 square foot home is going for $3.45 million, so Suh can make the move to Miami to play for the Dolphins. Earlier this spring, Suh signed a contract with that team for $114 million.

Suh’s former home has five bedrooms, four full bathrooms and three half-baths. Amenities feature an “indoor sport court, full size work-out room, massage room and recreational area,” according to the listing from Hall and Hunter Realtors.
