Dang. I missed the month of August nursing fractured bones, and now it’s almost fall (although you wouldn’t know it by the weather–still warm, thank goodness.)
August is also the month for shark week. Curbed paid homage to shark week by posting 5 houses for sale on shark-infested waters, three of which are below.
First up is this sweet little number located in Truro, Massachusetts, near Cape Cod. It was the site of a shark attack, presumably a Great White. This 2.5 million dollar home is preserved under the auspices of the Cape Cod National Seashore.
Next is this beautiful beachfront cottage in New Smyrna Beach, Florida. As recently as June of this year, a surfer was bitten on the foot. This quaint abode is listed at $790,000. Shark bites are gratis.
Finally, a home on a different scale–by about several hundred square feet. This palatial seaside home is located in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, and is listed at 4.6 million. According to Curbed, “the beach was the scene of a literal ‘feeding frenzy,’ where Blacktip sharks nibbled on at least four swimmers in a single incident.” Oh–it also has a shark tank-sized swimming pool. In case you want to catch any.
Something about insanely rich people living near sharks puts a wicked smile on my face.
