The home is basically the whole island… But what a unique home it is!
Known as Dollar Island (because it was originally sold by the government to a private owner for $1) this tiny island is located in Snows Channel on Lake Huron near Cedarville in Michigan’s Eastern Upper Peninsula.
The island/house is listed for sale for $850,000.
This unique island dwelling started out as just a windmill and cabin in 1913 but has been added onto over the years.
It is now a 1,612 square foot 3 bedroom, 2 bath home with a sauna, hot tub, solarium glass sun porch, and turret with wrap around balcony.
Here’s a panoramic of the kitchen/dining room:
The interior has a definite houseboat feel to it with a nautical theme throughout.
Is that a tree growing through the house? Fun!
Imagine lounging in the hot tub, looking out over the beautiful waves…
The property also includes multiple boat slips, a 3 stall boathouse, a large workshop, wrap around docking, and a waterfront gazebo.
House Crazy Sarah is going to sound like a Realtor here, but this is truly a water lover’s paradise! 🙂
The listing doesn’t mention what the turret is used for, but it’s surely a head-turner for passing boat traffic.
Dollar Island is only 0.6 of an acre but how awesome would it be to own your own island?
