Location: Charleston, S.C.
The Skinny: This South Carolina house takes waterfront living beyond the shoreline and onto concrete pilings out in the muddy waters of Charleston Harbor. Adapted from the remains of a former Navy degaussing station (degaussing basically equals demagnetizing) in 2010, the 4,689-square-foot water-borne abode sits astride a 340-foot dock, which gives it views of—per the listing—"Charleston Harbor, Fort Sumter, The Yorktown, Ravenel Bridge and the Historic Charleston Peninsula." The five-bedroom, five-bathroom main house features three levels of living space, including a library, a climate-controlled wine cellar, and a top floor sitting room with programmable shades and 360-degree harbor views. On the mainland, there's a 1,200-square-foot guest house over the three car garage, with its own kitchen and private terrace. At the other end of the dock there's a boat lift that can hoist 20,000 pounds of yacht out of the water for, you know, degaussing. It's asking $11M.
