Wine Mogul Sells Iconic Michigan Mansion

michigan mansionsIf you’ve lived in Michigan any length of time you’ve likely been influenced by the Celani Family whether knowingly or not. The Celani family is involved in many aspects of Michigan life, from Ann Arbor to Livonia, to Northville and Bloomfield (where he lives in this Michigan Mansion). He’s the “owner” of Farmington Hills-based MotorCity Harley-Davidson and Bloomfield Hills-based MotorCity Power Sports, the “president and CEO” of Novi-based Luna Entertainment, the “proprietor” of TC Vineyards Inc., the Celani Family Vineyards in Napa Valley. He’s also an investor in a theater chain, a land developer in Arizona and Colorado, and a casino management consultant. That’s just his professional resume.

Tom Celani, Beloved Michigan Mogul

Finally, they are also benefactors to the Detroit Symphony Orchestra and Michigan Opera Theatre.

The big question is where will Tom Celani go after selling this Michigan Mansion?  Will he retire to Michigan, just elsewhere?  Or will he move to Florida, like many do from the north.   If I was a betting man I might say he’d retire to California, to be in the heart of wine country.

Michigan Mansion Mortgage

If you were to put 30% down on this Michigan Mansion, you’d have a mansion sized mortgage of over $30,000 a month.  You can add on top of that a $730 HOA monthly fee.
