They say you get what you pay for, but in this case, we expected more. Now, we totally get that location is everything and uniqueness adds to the mix, but for $4.9M you would expect a little more.

If this was New York City, paying $4.9M for a 1 bedroom place wouldn't, sadly, be unheard of, but we have to admit the surprise in seeing the price tag for a place in Michigan.

The property in question is The Boathouse at Turtle Lake which is considered the most unique waterfront property in Oakland County and one of the most unique in the United States according to the listing. Located in Bloomfield Hills, the home offers 223 prime feet of Turtle Lake frontage in the community which is the last private lake property in Bloomfield Hills. The property is part of the development that consists of 101 single-family estate lots spread out over 256 breathtaking country-style acres.

So what do you get for $4.9 million? Basically one bedroom and two bathrooms, but trust us, you don't lack space. The Boathouse is 2268 square feet of living space with a uniquely elegant interior that rivals any million-dollar home.

Inside you will find meticulous renovations that include floor-to-ceiling glass windows, a pewabic-tiled wood-burning fireplace, knotty pine walls, exposed wooden beams, wide plank hardwood floors, and a blue stone foyer. For entertaining, you can enjoy the dock that can accommodate multiple boats, and your own private sandy beach right on Turtle Lake.

We will agree that the place is truly incredible and charming, but $4.9 million is steep. Still, compared to other properties in the community, it may be right on point. There is currently a 6+ acre equestrian lot for sale for $5.9 million...no house included.

Take a look at The Boathouse below and you can decide.
