A historic, stone castle with 113 feet of lakefront property has hit the market in Michigan.
Know as "the castle on the lake", the unique estate on .71 acres is for sale for $850,000 in Saint Clair Shores, Mich.
The five-bedroom, four-bathroom, 4,000 square foot home was originally built in 1926.
There are so many magnificent features, inside and out!
According to the listing, the "iconic" exterior is a mix of stone and brick. The property also comes with a carriage house, attached two-car garage, widows walk, turret, Juliet balconies, and a grandfathered in boat house.
What first caught my eye in the interior - the floors! On the main level, there is terrazzo flooring throughout. Terrazzo, which is made of chips of marble, quartz, granite, and/ or glass, means “terrace,” in Italian, and traces its root back 500+ years to Italy.
The dining room is also something to see, with inlays of mahogany, teak, and walnut wainscoting with grand French doors leading out to the living room.
And of course, there's the views! The listing says the new owners will be able to "enjoy sunrise views over Lake St. Clair".
The sunroom is one spot great for lake-viewing, along with the atrium that has a 10-foot bow window and skylight which connects to the carriage house. Oh yes, there's a whole other living space on the property! The 700 square-foot house has its own kitchen, living room, breakfast room, bedroom, pantry, and separate entrance from garage.
I really love the basement with the stone fireplace too... I could go on! Take a tour of "the castle on the lake" in the gallery below!
