The five-bedroom house was built during the 1930s, as if you were on a boat, too.

The views of the lake and the steering wheel in the living room make you feel like you are at sea.

Between Lake Huron and Saginaw Bay in Michigan, a house in the shape of a boat sells for $750,000.

The unique home looks like a ship out of the bluff and is used as a family gathering place.
It's nautically designed inside and out, making it feel like a "playground" in the 50s and 60s when Barbara Bom Frithy spent her childhood summers at home.

An avid sailor, William Baum built the house in 1935 with the help of family and friends, according to his granddaughter Barbara Baum Frithy.

While he was not happy with his career, Bohm Frithy loved sailing and owned several old wooden boats.

Baum Frith said that William bought the land and designed a house in the shape of a steamer that comes out of deception. According to Bohm Frithy, William built the cottage with the help of his children and a friend of theirs who was a carpenter, who added that they completed the house in one year—by 1936.

She said her grandfather built the nautical-style table and hung a picture behind it. Both are still at home.
According to the listing, there is a bedroom on the main floor, two bedrooms upstairs, and two bedrooms downstairs.
Bohm Frith said the house is unique because it creates the illusion that you are at sea with a steering wheel in the living room and expansive windows overlooking the water.
