Lakeside Retreat Blends into Woods, Stands Out on Price

New, 3 comments

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: Ellison Bay, Wis.
Price: $2,895,000
The Skinny: Tucked away on the shores of Lake Michigan, this secluded midcentury retreat looks the treehouse part, but keeps things luxuriously adult. Wraparound decks provide peeks at the lake and a grandfathered pier allows for four waterborne playthings, while inside, a teak-clad chef's kitchen is decked out in Wolf and SubZero. Plus, it's just two hours from the land of the Cheesehead, Green Bay. Aside from some garish blue carpeting, there's not much to dislike about this bayside beaut. Well, except the price. At $2.9M and just 2,000 square feet, this house is asking almost $1,500 per square foot. A bit steep for rural Wisconsin, no?
