Cheaper Version of Santa Barbara Insanity Surfaces in Michigan

Have a nomination for a jaw-dropping listing that would make a mighty fine House of the Day? Get thee to the tipline and send us your suggestions. We'd love to see what you've got.

Location: Waterford, Mich.
Price: $3,800,000
The Skinny: In the suburbs north of Detroit, this '70s blast from the past is set on Lotus Island, a one-acre private island. That sort of isolation might explain the decision to combine the clean lines of this house with a Grecian railing; as in, when an architectural curiosity is made on an island, and no one's around to see it...oh, nevermind. We're more interested in the similarities to a certain pricey California modern we featured back in October. That particular house was asking $35M, and it wasn't even on an island! For a tenth the price, trade in that Ferrari garage for a couple of prancing horse sculptures and call it a day. Sound great, we know, but caveat emptor: some of those photos look like they've been yellowing in a desk drawer for 30 years.
