Boathouse Winery has a great outdoor tasting area that can be accessed by boat.  And while you’re there enjoy the view.

I passed by the, for better words, the “Steelcase House” last evening on the way to Northport.  On August, 22, 2004, I featured it on the Leland Report not knowing exactly what it was I made fun of it.  I was taken to task by the owner and by one of our favorite Historical Architects for being satirical of the structure.  I honestly at the time had no idea of what it’s purpose was.  Since it’s completion I’ve always believed that if it had been placed somewhere along the shoreline out of sight, it would be a great retreat. It now stands alone on the side of the road abandoned, vacant and for sale.  I believe I still have a video tape recording of a half hour TV show that showcased the home.  I hope it can be home to some family in the near future..

What is the “A, B, C, D’s”?


Jim, in the first picture above of the steelcase house, there is an “A, B, C, D” list of topics.One of which states the “new location for Fischers Happy Hour Tavern”- FYI.

That was a joke quiz when the house was first being built. “See if you can guess what this is”. 🙂

the house is far from abandoned, but it is for sale, The listing pictures may be found by putting MLS 1799720 in your search box. Hope it finds a family soon.


Interesting building. I suspect it would be a bear to heat in the winter.

Maybe a Minecraft fan will buy it.


Hopefully there is an Open House from 2-4 this Sunday so I can stroll thru it!!! I kid, of course…why would I come off the beach.
