Door County is home to some of the most elaborate homes in Northeast Wisconsin, but one takes the cake—and it's for sale right now.
"The Miller House" in Ellison Bay, WI is a 35,000 square foot home—considered the largest single family home in the state of Wisconsin.
The property is being sold by Chicago based national real estate auction company Hilco. CEO Michael Fine says the house has proven difficult to sell because of the lack of a standard in price for this sort of home.
The mansion was built for an heiress to the Appleton, WI based Miller Electric Company. It took three years to build and was completed in 1996. She lived in the home until selling it in 2005. The new owner had some health issues, and passed away before she was able to move into the property.
Fine says the house has some unique features…
The auction is a sealed bid event, meaning bids are placed privately in writing. Bidders can offer at any level they feel is appropriate for the property. On the open market, the mansion originally listed at $24 million, and was reduced to 19.5 million.
