This Smurftastic house costs over $4 million

The iconic roof is thought to have always been blue, except for a period in the 1940s when the whole house was painted green.

A home complete with a bright blue roof - dubbed the Smurf House - has been put on the market for more than $4 million.

The seven-bed, eight-bath property in West Bloomfield, Michigan punctuates the natural lakeside landscape that surrounds it with its cartoon-style roof.

Built in 1920, the 7,476 sq ft house was listed on property website Zillow on May 14, where its unusual features saw it go viral.

One Twitter user said: "This house going viral in Zillow circles belongs to my uncle and for 15 years I have told everyone I know not to go inside because it is haunted as sh*t.

"Cannot overstate how much I stayed for one weekend in the mid-aughts and something still lingers in the corner of my eye."

Another joked: "I’m so old all I can think about is how much the roofing bill will be."

The $4,199,000 Cotswold-style property sits on 2.92 acres of land with 175 feet of Pine Lake's sandy shoreline and 187 feet of Pine Lake Golf Course.

It comes with a 100-foot dock extending into the water, and a striking seven-car garage complete with a bar.

The previous owners lived at 2690 Pine Lake Rd since 2005 and, whilst they spent much time renovating the property, many of the lighting fixtures are original.

It is currently being listed by real estate agents Coldwell Banker Weir Manuel, and boasts nine fireplaces and three levels decorated with ceramics, stone, leaded glass and plaster.

The iconic roof is thought to have always been blue, except for a period in the 1940s when the whole house was painted green.

It is made of stained golden cedar shake and has a useful life of 85 years.

Despite looking like it is straight out of "The Smurfs," the wavy design on the exterior walls and roof is meant to match the water and texture of the lake.

The interiors are more traditional, with nine fireplaces and a formal downstairs ballroom with terrazzo flooring and small stage for a three-piece band.
