This isolated mid-century round house in the U.P. is fit for hibernation


What goes around comes around in this mid-century modern "Usonian"-style round house hidden in the Upper Peninsula, where we absolutely want to live in to live out the rest of this sadistic Mad Libs of a year — and beyond.
An architectural feat, this $309,000 home in Bark River on the Ford River is one of the “coolest” properties its listing agent says she's seen in her 20 years in the business. The home occupies 1,964 square feet on a 94-acre lot and features 2 beds, 2 baths, and unique custom-built furniture to fit the circular space including a buffet that pulls out into a dining table. Other quirks include floating shelves, a built-in safe, and subtle details like the sandstone fireplace with smoke-like cutout details.
What's cooler than a round house? A round house that comes with the original log cabin, two-car garage, all of which takes up 7+ acres of the 94, with the remaining acreage situated in an old-growth Hemlock forest which is a conservancy in perpetuity which prohibits motorized vehicles, hunting, and cutting of trees — so you can be the 2020 hermit you've longed to become.
