Last Wednesday, I’ll admit, my husband and I joined the legions of people who bought tickets for the billion dollar powerball drawing and indulged in some hardcore daydreaming. Mostly, we were thinking about how instantly having that kind of money would allow us to move the needle on preserving/protecting/restoring the Great Lakes watershed and other charitable ventures. But we also found time for some real estate daydreaming. It was great fun falling down the rabbit hole that is http://www.lakehouse.com. We narrowed it down to 2 favorites.
First up? Look at this lovely slice of Lake Michigan coastal living: (the following pictures are from the listings and are not my own)
Located on 19 acres, this mid-century gem caught our eyes. The listing touts the investment/development potential, saying one could parcel the property out for 4 additional houses. Forget that! I’d want to leave the property/land/coast as untouched as possible. It’s along both the coast of Lake Michigan and a river that feeds into the lake. Look at these views:
Door number 2? A total wild card pick in Wyoming:
This 55 acre spread backs up to a river and is bordered on 2 sides by the Shoshone National Forest. Heart stopping.
Right??? That’s a lot of “wow”.
Fun stuff. Where would you live if money was no object?
