Built by a master yachtsman, this one-of-a-kind architectural home in Bradenton, Fla., provides more than 6,200 square feet of living space for $1,750,000. Make that waterfront space.

Described as "sturdy as the finest seaworthy vessel," the four-bedroom home, named Casa Whaley, features steel beams, galleys and wrap-around decks. It sits on a secluded lot on deep water in a naturally protected cove at the mouth of the Manatee River and has 102 feet of river frontage.
