Michael Moore’s Michigan Mansion Up for Sale for $5.2 Million

America’s foremost crusader for the “middle class,” Michael Moore, lost his multi-million dollar Michigan mansion in his last divorce, and now the house is on the market for a cool $5.2 million

The house, which Moore bought with his producer and then-wife Kathleen Glynn, purchased the property just a few short years ago for $290,000, but put in extensive repairs and remodels (some of which, according to Mike’s divorce papers, went way beyond what he was expecting). Now, if you’d like to see what the life of a liberal power player is really like, in the lap of luxury in one of Michigan’s most exclusive lake front areas, you – yes you – can own a piece of Moore-morabilia.

Oscar-winning documentarian and gleefully relentless political provocateur Michael Moore may be a vociferous critic of the American corporatocracy and a dedicated champion of the working class, but he’s nonetheless a multimillionaire many times over who is no stranger to luxurious residential circumstances, as evidenced by the sprawling and casually luxurious lakefront compound in Central Lake, Michigan, his new ex-wife, Kathleen Glynn, put up for sale with an automotive industry fat cat-worthy price tag of $5.2 million.

According to property records we perused, the equally loved and loathed lefty liberal rabble-rouser — his next film “Where to Invade Next,” his first in six years, will make its debut at the Toronto Film Festival in September — and Ms. Glynn, who collaborated on and produced a number of her ex-husband’s early cinematic exposes, including “Bowling for Columbine,” “Farenheit 9/11” and “Sicko,” purchased the Upper Michigan property together in December 1995 for $290,000. The property was transferred over to Miz Glynn exclusively earlier this year, presumably as a condition of their divorce decree.

The home, located just three hours northwest of Flint, the subject of Mr. Moore’s first video and the impetus for his liberal leaning, is pretty spectacular. It sits on two parcels of land (3.62 acres of lush ground on Michigan’s Torch Lake) and features hand-hewn log walls, a brilliant eat-in kitchen with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances, seven bedrooms and eight and one half bathrooms (in just the main residence – the property is actually a “compound” of three separate homes, including the main house, an “executive office” and a guest quarters), an exercise room with brand new equipment, “meandering” libraries, landcaped gardens, a bathroom with two separate toilets, a “shaded dining veranda,” cathedral-height ceilings in the entryway and pretty much every other amenity you can pack into an almost-12,000 square foot home in the middle of nowhere. 

Oh, and a private boat dock.

You could probably pick the estate up for well under its list price, too, since it’s not as though the Moores and former-Moores really need the roof over their heads. This is only one of nine properties the two own together, including several Michigan estates and a million dollar apartment in NYC’s Upper West Side.

It must be nice to be so rich. Wonder if he’d consider “redistributing” that Michigan mansion to a needly former Michigan resident with some student loans?
