Lighthouse-Equipped Private Island Abode Asks $2.4M

New, 2 comments


Few American summer homes do novel and picturesque quite like the many historic lighthouses dotting the coast of Michigan, and this one ups the ante by throwing in the seven-acre private island it sits on. Round Island is its rather pedestrian name—and it isn't even the only Round Island in the area—but let's chalk the title up to a misplaced sense of modesty. Built in 1892, the house spent years in a state of disrepair after its days guiding ships through the mouth of St. Mary's River came to an end, until one couple undertook the project of "turning a dilapidated 100-year-old building into a wonderful summer home." Now, the place is clad in charming baby blue siding, with a clean, traditional interior that looks straight out of Better Homes and Gardens and a two-story deck looking out onto Munuscong Lake. At three bedrooms and 2,000 square feet, the place is pretty small for its $2.4M asking price, but, then again, you have an entire island to play Prospero on. Here, have a look-see:
