Comes word that Don Carter has sold his stately Georgian mansion at 4000 University Boulevard. I’m sure you’ve seen this house — stunning. All stone on a huge UP lot of 100 by 200 on a corner to boot with huge lap pool and putting green! There are six living areas, a bar room, wine cellar, two story formal foyer with split staircase, full theater, his & hers studies, out of this world finishes of marble, millwork, hardwoods, premium appliances, copper gutters, slate roof, an elevator, 2 car port cochere, circular drive and gardens. Four bedrooms, four full and two half baths. There is a gorgeous guest house over the 3 car garage, and a stone fence surrounds it all. Truly one of the most dramatic homes in UP, and Sharon Quist had the listing, Jonathan Rosen and Sam Sawyer of Briggs brought the buyer. The home just closed June 12 for $3,900,000 off an asking price of $4 million. No wonder this one went: had been on the market since April 16, sold in two months. What took you so long?
Carter, is you know, is the son of Mary Crowley who started Home Interiors and besides being a talented businessman, he was also the founding owner of the Mavericks, which he sold in 1996 to that famous Perot/Cuban investment group, but remains a 4% owner. What I find interesting is that Carter is also a devout Baptist, but this home has a wet bar and wine cellar. Guess that was just for company!
