Enjoy views of Lake Huron St. Mary's River with passing lake freighters and foreign ships, all from a lighthouse harbor home in DeTour Village in Chippewa County.

"Inspired by the Light House in Mackinaw City, this Light House design home is built on its own peninsula with a dredged Harbor boat slip and has a view of the Detour Light House from almost every room," said Realtor John Griffin of Coldwell Banker Schmidt.

Built in 2003, this single-family estate, priced at $600,000, is 2,460 square feet with three bedrooms, three baths and an inside and outside observation deck on the fourth level. 

Other highlights include a workshop above the garage, heated floors and custom cabinetry throughout. There's also a 20-by-40 foot boat well that measures 7 to 8 feet in deep area and outside the boat well,and  the channel is 9-11 feet up to the DNR channel. There are also boardwalks, decks and a dockside hideaway with a cupola. 

The house, which sits on a 1.6 acre lot at 513 Olmstead, is surrounded by numerous gardens filled with wildflowers and wildlife.
