Whenever I'm feeling a little homesick for the U.S., I pick a state and start window shopping their real estate ads. I know, strange. But the other day I found this gorgeous lake house built in the 1880's and just a short drive from Chicago in Wisconsin. I'm smitten with the enclosed wrap around porch and original woodwork. So take a peek:
It comes replete with the original boathouse and gazebo. It even has a bowling alley!
Naturally there is some restoration and updating I would consider but I hope whomever decides to call this home keeps all the charming details and woodwork.
