Do you know what matters most in real estate? Location, location, location. That popular saying and or phrase is to remind people that the most determining factor in a price of a house is indeed its location.

I bring this up because a West Bloomfield, Michigan landmark home just hit the market. This particular piece of real estate dubbed the 'Smurf House' may not be your dream home with its distinct blue roof, but the property just might be.

This magical home sits on close to 3 acres of land and offers 175 feet of all sports Pine Lake frontage, 187' on Pine Lake Golf course, and a seven-car garage. Does that sound like something you would be interested in?

Additional features of the home include,

  • 7 bedrooms
  • 5 full bathrooms
  • 3 half baths
  • 9 fireplaces
  • 3 levels (plus a finished lower level)

The listing spotlights the use of ceramics, stone, and leaded glass throughout the home which is reminiscent of a Cotswold home. What the heck is a Cotswold home you ask? Good question, I did not know either so I Googled it,

The Cotswold style of architecture is a style based on houses from the Cotswold region of England and is sometimes called the storybook style. Cotswold houses often have a prominent chimney, often near the front door of the house. Other notable features include king mullions and steep roofs.

I am just fine with referring to it as the 'Smurf House'. The Smurfs incidentally was the only cartoon I watched as a kid. That being said, as soon as I heard the term 'Smurf House' I could picture in my head what the house most likely would look like. I have to say I was not too far off in terms of the exterior. Check it out for yourself below, and let me know what you think of this truly unique home.

Did I mention the asking price is $4,199,000? You may need to ask Papa Smurf for a loan.
