It’s obvious why this was once called the Blueberry Hill House. This 2,178-square-foot eclectic round house is the quirkiest residence in the Skaneateles Lake area thanks to its bold blue exterior and hut-like shape. With four bedrooms and three bathrooms, this house makes for the perfect forest hideaway, whether you use it as a vacation home or if you want to make your stay in Skaneateles permanent. Best of all, you can live your blueberry bungalow dreams for a very affordable $400,000.

Blueberry Hill House Living Room

Blueberry Hill House Fireplace

The interior of the round house comes from the mind of artist Sheryl Barabba, who has lived in this home with her husband Vincent since it was built in 2003. While the wood-paneled ceiling enhances the bungalow feel, the beige walls and furniture set a neutral tone within the expansive living area. With room for many comfy couches, this space is perfect for entertaining, and the gas-burning features of the beautiful mosaic tiled fireplace mean that every night is a good night for sitting by the fire. There isn’t a lot of wall space, but who needs to put up paintings when you have such a stunning view of the Skaneateles Lake?

Blueberry Hill House Kitchen

In the center of the living area sits a stylish kitchen. Tan paneled cabinets accompany pale gray granite countertops. For the those who love cooking (or making a mess in the sink), the island features a double bowl sink.

Blueberry HIll House Bedroom

The round house’s four bedrooms abandon the living room’s neutral tones for more striking colors. Their curved shape makes the scene-stealing lake the focal point of each bedroom.

Blueberry Hill House Porch

Blueberry Hill House Better Porch

The slight slope of the property has made it possible for this one-level house to have a raised porch, which wraps around nearly half of the house and allows for an unobstructed view of the lake. Beneath the porch sits a convenient walk-out basement.

While $400,000 is already a steal for this one-of-a-kind home, a sealed bid auction for the house is being held until July 6, 2015, with an opening price of $1.
