Perfect solar eclipse views at this $6M Michigan mansion

Everyone’s getting ready for the total solar eclipse coming up in just a few short days. Whether you’re watching from your backyard with your dog, or flying above the clouds with your $35,000 plane ticket and a glass of champagne, you’re likely missing out on the best view in the country–a $5.9 million mansion in Michigan complete with an eclipse-viewing ready observatory.

Just 15 minutes from Ann Arbor, this Palladian-style mansion is ten years of hard work put into 9,025 square feet.

You won’t need to install a telescope to see the solar eclipse on this property (or anywhere for that matter, that’s dangerous!), which boast 50 wooded acres. The home comes with a built-in, rotating observatory allowing for a 360 degree view of the sky. Talk about front row seating!

Beyond the impeccable galaxy views, this house has even more to offer including a home theater, 1,000-bottle wine cellar, an elevator taking you to each of the five floors and a two-story library. There are four bedrooms, seven bathrooms, a formal, family and a hobby room. The house is complete with a two-story stone screened porch with a bronze screen that “sings” when the wind blows.

This unexpected Michigan mansion may house the best viewing party venue possible for this rare solar eclipse. [TTRED]
