This Detroit canal house is business in the front, and party in the back

This Harbor Island house in Detroit has a huge boathouse in the back that can hold two boats. With the house right on the water, the boathouse goes down to lake-level and keeps the boats right on the water. A canal from the lake runs behind the houses to connect all the boathouses out into the lake. As if that wasn't enough, inside this brick colonial is a wet bar, a hot tub, and even a little balcony to look out onto the water. This house is a perfect place for a bachelor pad or even a family lake house.
