$10M House Made of Shipwreck Timber is 'Feng Shui Compliant'

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: Bainbridge Island, Wash.
Price: $9,800,000
The Skinny: The listing for this Miller Hull design on Washington's Bainbridge Island makes two things abundantly clear: 1) this mansion is "Feng Shui compliant," and 2) said Feng Shui compliance is in no way negatively affected by the fact that a large portion of it is constructed with "large beams from a shipwreck." Sure, to the layman, being smashed violently upon the unforgiving rocks during a terrible tempest—while the gunroom burns and the loblolly boys cry for their mothers—may seem not only a horrible fate for a ship and it's crew, but also a surefire way to make sure that negative Qi follows the cursed, shattered remains of the vessel wherever they may go. But that would be ridiculous, because cursed ghost ships and their cadaverous, cutlass-waving crews are mere figments of superstitious imaginations, while Feng Shui is totally a science. The four bedroom, four bathroom, 10,499-square-foot manse is asking $9.8M.
