It’s definitely one of a kind – I’ve never seen anything like it before. Except for perhaps a Dutch windmill combined with an Orville Tracy cottage with cat slide roof.

The home was built in the year 1900. It is situated on a lakefront lot on Lake Orion, in Lake Orion Village, Michigan (a couple hours north of Detroit).

It is listed for sale at $419,000.

The home has been thoroughly updated and modernized, but it is still completely charming and inviting.

The kitchen has been completely revamped, but it retains a quaint cottage-y feel.

The property has 2 docks and 2 towers – the tower in back [or on the lake front] was built to function like a lighthouse!
