The end in Detroit is near for Matthew and Kelly Stafford, and Monday they relisted their massive suburban Detroit lake house for $6,500,000. Stafford and the Lions have agreed to part ways, and soon there will be no need for the 7,700 sq. ft. compound on Long Lake in Bloomfield Hills. You’ve seen the house featured on thousands of Kelly’s Instagram Stories, but there’s a good chance you’ve never seen everything this incredible house has to offer.
There’s a 625 bottle wine cellar that you might not be aware of. There’s the indoor basketball court, featuring the original Pistons court that was used at the Silverdome. It used to get major play on Kelly’s social media before the kids came along. And there’s a really good chance you’ve never seen the bar with the pool table.
Realtor Jeff Barker from Max Broock Realtors explains just what you’re getting here. (Caps emphasis via Jeff.)

Now for the bad news: The nearest Starbucks, according to Google Maps, is a 14-mile drive. Whole Foods is seven miles. Lions headquarters is 26 miles. Treetops Golf Resort is 216 miles.
Look, if you buy this house, you make your own coffee. You hire your own bartenders to come serve at parties. You hire chefs. You hire pool guys to take care of the largest infinity pool in Michigan. Let’s say you’re the person who won the $1 billion Mega Millions at a Kroger store just 18 miles from the Stafford house. You might want to head on over and ask Matthew and Kelly how soon they can be out.
And then put up a 20-foot wall around the entire place.
