….there was this beautiful fairy tale Victorian shingle home.
And it was for sale!
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).
This uniquely designed home has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms in 2,314 square feet.
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.
An even dreamier little girl’s bedroom:
How sweet is this???
All of the bedrooms are large and light-filled.
Out the windows, you have close-up views of Lake Orion…
The property has 2 docks and 2 towers – the tower in back [or on the lake front] was built to function like a lighthouse!
