Chateau du Lac: Luxury Living Beyond Imagination

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

Overlooking the waters of Lake Michigan, high atop an ancient limestone bluff, stands a spectacular mansion so impressive that it is possibly the grandest ever built in the Upper Midwest region of the United States. Chateau du Lac offers the ultimate privacy amid the towering pines of Northeastern Wisconsin, yet this secluded residence is located just 270 miles from Chicago.

The palatial main residence of Chateau du Lac consists of an expansive 35,000 square feet. Lustrous oak and marble floors lead through dramatic archways and stately French doors to unfold into three distinctively refined wings.

In the central wing, a formal two-story foyer with dual staircases leads to the grand hall. Beyond, the formal great room and bayside parlors exemplify the home’s gracious elegance. An Art Deco cinema which seats 14, and the pub room – complete with a full kitchen and bar area – are perfect for entertaining. A garden room, and sparkling indoor pool with whirlpool provide ample additional space for entertaining and relaxation. No bibliophile could resist the breathtaking two-story library, adorned with leaded and stained glass windows, and the morning room, with its designer tiles and hand- painted murals, makes for the ideal space for peaceful reflection. A custom kitchen fully equipped with commercial grade appliances serves the opulent formal dining room

However, no space within Chateau du Lac is truer to the notion of ultimate luxury than the master suite. Featuring a gallery entry, these seven rooms alone are comprised of more than 5,000 square feet. A second gallery connects the master suite with the northern wing, which offers three additional guest suites with a parlor and galley kitchen.

Two separate guesthouses offer further accommodations, and a beach house whose steps lead to a sun pier on the shore of Lake Michigan provides the height of easy living.

This exclusive residence sits on approximately 100 wooded acres with 100 feet of Lake Michigan frontage. For the ultimate in convenience, two private airports are located nearby. Ephraim-Gibraltar Airport is a mere five miles away – and Cherryland Airport, just 36 miles away – can accommodate G5 landings.

Chateau du Lac, along with art, antiques, furnishings and vehicles, is currently offered at $29,000,000. To view this exquisite property, contact Properties of Door County broker John D. Blossom at (920) 854-6444. Properties of Door County is an affiliate of Christie’s Great Estates. Additional information and images of Chateau du Lac can be found at
