Location: Bradenton, Fla.
Price: $1.75 million
The Skinny: Built by a master yachtsman, the 6,200-square-foot "Casa Whaley" estate keeps its owner in the thrall of the water even on dry land with its 102 feet of river frontage. The house features wraparound porches along the second level, a 4,000-square-foot Philippine shell stone patio, a swimming pool, and a koi pond, all good for entertaining after long months at sea. The interior isn’t as much of a departure from a seagoing vessel, with the wood paneling and all, but we doubt many yachts have a stone bar or a commercial-grade Viking stove. The asking price is $1.75 million for this four-bed, four-bath home in Bradenton, Fla.
