See inside the $6.5 million lakeside mansion with stunning views, hidden passageways, slides and a man cave

ATLAS TWP, MI – When you think of a dream home, a lot comes to mind.

For some, it’s a man cave or wine cellar, maybe even a sunroom.

Others may want a private movie theater.

Naturally, the inner child in all of us remembers that we want hidden doors and passages, perhaps even sliding inside the house to get from one floor to another.

This French chateau style home has turned that dream into reality with all of the above and more.

Located at 10399 Lakeshore Drive E in Atlas Township in Genesee County near Goodrich, this six-story custom gem is listed on the market for $6.5 million through Real Estate One with realtor Chyna Slade.

This unique property is MLive’s House of the Week. Homes across the state in varying architectural styles and prices are featured every Wednesday.

This handcrafted masterpiece is set on 20 acres of pure luxury, Slade said.

“The property is the epitome of every desire,” the listing says. “Immerse yourself in the tranquility of a private lakeside setting.”

With 2,500 feet of lake frontage, it is ideal for all four seasons, but especially summer with a dock and boating access to a private lake made for all sports – Shenandoah Lake.

Future owners and guests will enjoy many amenities, as the home competes with eight bedrooms and 13 bathrooms within the nearly 21,000-square-foot property.

This Michigan oasis also includes a charming treehouse, a basketball court for non-stop play, a private movie theater, and a disco room.

For entertaining guests, this totally fun cave transports everyone to the feel of the rustic charm of a cabin in the woods without having to step outside. For a more elegant side, guests can also find their way to the sophisticated Champagne Room with an adjacent full wine cellar.

“You can enter the man cave three different ways. Elevator, stairs and a secret spiral staircase, too. There’s a wine cellar. The bathroom is complete with a urinal. There’s a wooden bar,” Slade said. “It has a view of the lake. It’s as if you were heading north to be in a cabin in your home.

“There’s also a champagne room. More feminine champagne glasses, brighter walls and lots of sunlight. The best of both worlds under one roof.”

Both, in addition to navigating throughout the entire house, can be accessed via multiple stairs and even a glass elevator.

And for the childhood wonder in all of us, there are several hidden passages, a secret staircase and two delightful slides – one descending three full floors and the other leading from the floor with the bedrooms directly to the kitchen.

There is one stop on the larger slide for a secret room to peek in and watch movies in the movie theater, Slade said.

“You never see slides anywhere, and they’re a lot of fun for kids, and adults, too,” Slade said. “If you have a drink and want to ride the slides, it’s a lot of fun for everyone.”

The gorgeous slate roof, followed by custom woodwork, and a full brick and limestone design, enhance the appeal of this exceptional home, transforming it into a lifestyle you will truly enjoy, the listing says.

This is the perfect getaway, less than an hour’s drive from Detroit and easily accessible via I-75 or I-69. Enjoy the privacy you deserve or enjoy the vibrant city life when you feel like it, the listing states.

This is the first time the entire home and estate has been made available for ownership.

And for even more bragging rights, this house was once featured on MTV Teen Cribs.

“Someone looking for privacy would want that. Everything is custom designed. Both owners have put their heart, sweat, blood and tears into this house,” Slade said. “The woodwork is absolutely gorgeous. There are also crazy amenities like indoor slides. A man cave that makes you feel like you’re walking north, hidden passages and an elevator. You won’t find anything else like this.”
