Phoenix Suns’ owner Mat Ishbia’s plans new


The world is your oyster, or amusement park when you’re a billionaire.

Mortgage magnate Mat Ishbia is on his way to building Michigan’s largest occupied house, featuring a trampoline park, serpentine swimming pool and an “Enchanted Forest” among other attractions in Bloomfield Township, about 25 miles northwest of Detroit.

Ishbia, who runs the nation’s biggest mortgage company and is the majority owner of two pro basketball teams – Phoenix Suns and Phoenix Mercury – plans to tear down his current award-winning 22,000-square-foot house that is only 8 years old, as well as five neighboring houses to build his new amusement park-style mansion.

Ishbia’s new house is estimated to be at least 60,000 square feet when it’s complete, says the township assessor’s office, and will sit on about 14 acres of land. The only thing bigger than this is Michigan’s largest unoccupied house – the 85,000-square-foot Meadow Brook Hall, built in the 1920s by Dodge auto heiress Matilda Wilson, who gave it to Oakland University as a conference center. No one lives at Meadow Brook Hall.
