I think I have finally found my wife’s dream house.  She loves Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings, a love we do NOT share by the way. There is a one of a kind dream home for her for sale in Maine, but it is a little out of my price range.  The Wizards Den is listed on Zillow for $375,000.  I must admit, it's totally worth it.  With features like swinging chairs and couches, a bathtub built into a wall, and a charming fairytale cottage exterior it’s a one of a kind according to apartmenttherapy.com.  Building unique homes is a passion for owner David Lee.  He told apartmentherapy.com that “We’ve been on Zillow for 5 to 6 days, and we’ve had 15,664 viewers and 401 saves.”

 

The Wizard’s Den features three bedrooms and two baths.  The 2,2000 square foot home is located on a 1.84-acre lot in Boothbay, Maine.  The builder, David Lee, has been constructed the home in 2016.  It's not his first build.  He started with a “cute little cottage” and when on from there.  He told apartmenttherapy.com “The first one I built was a cute little cottage, and then I did another.  Each one got more and more radical, pushing the envelope.”  All hope for my wife owning a Wizards like den is not lost.  Owner and creator David Lee is hoping to open a school to teach others his unique spin on design.  My wife is handy so perhaps she can take one of David Lee’s courses and build us a little cottage.

One of the nicest features of this home is the large studio where you could paint or sew or set up any type of art studio, and it leads out to a porch where you can enjoy the great outdoors.  The best part of the Zillow listing, and what really showcases David Lee’s personality is the property description.  It rhymes.  “Homes such as these are extremely rare and few of them are quite as fair.  Most are gone, few remain, but here’s a new one right here in Maine!  Out in the woods on beautiful land, yet town and the sea are near at hand.” Oh, well, maybe I will win the lottery.  Or my wife better get her tool bag out and start building!
