Anyone with a cool $12 million lying around and a desire to live on Lake Michigan is in luck.
Soft-rock heavyweight, Richard Marx, is selling his Gilded Age mansion on the lakeshore. The singer, who became famous for hits like "Now and Forever" and "Right Here Waiting," purchased the home in the early 1990s.
“There were just a lot of parameters I needed to fill,” Marx told Bloomberg. “I needed room for a large family, I needed to entertain guests, and I needed a recording studio, so I wouldn’t have to fly back and forth to LA.”
He and his wife at the time, actress Cynthia Rhodes, bought the sprawling 1930s estate and restored it to its former glory.
Today, the 29,745 square foot home has seven bedrooms, eight full baths, six half baths, a movie theater and a recording studio, according to Zillow.
It has been on the market since 2013, when Marx and the Dirty Dancing actress divorced. At the time it was listed for $18 million. Recently the price dropped to $11.99 million.
The house, Marx shared, "is a very special place. It was an amazing space to raise a family and a great workspace for me."
One thing's for sure, it's truly a stunning home.
