More than 8,500 square feet of living space on 28 acres makes you fell like you are up North, just minutes from downtown Kalamazoo.

You'd never guess an estate like this was here. Situated just North of M-43 at 10463 W. H Ave. in Oshtemo is a custom, 5 bedroom, 8 bath manor on a sprawling 28 acres; with a private lake, this place has curb appeal deep in the woods.

First, the grounds. Most of the 28 acres is wooded, with the mansion secluded at the end of a winding, gated drive on the shore of a 5 acre private lake. A full size basketball court is ready for play and the outdoor bar is nearby with a big screen TV and gigantic grill. A rooftop deck overlooks the swimming pool with a footbridge spanning the water. There's even a fountain up by the house.

Michigan's natural beauty highlights the inside of the house as 37' ceilings in the great room provide an ample view of the lake. The massive gourmet kitchen is supplemented by a roomy prep area in the pantry. Certainly a house for entertaining, with and arcade and indoor shuffleboard table, you can relax in the hot tub near the fireplace when your guests have gone home for the night or checked in to one of the 5 cozy bedrooms. Scroll through this gorgeous photo gallery of the property and contact agent JoAnne Potts of Jaqua Realty if you can swing a $15,000/month mortgage.
