Hope you like pink!
Of course, you can always gut and repaint this charming five-bedroom home on 16 acres in Islesboro, Maine—but that would ruin the lingering, très femme vibe passed down from its previous celebrity occupant, don't you think?
The owner, who perhaps put those wood floors to good use while rehearsing for Dancing With the Stars, is asking $2.35 million for the bayfront "cottage," which has its own dock and is a 20-minute ferry ride to the mainland.
It's obviously the perfect place to stay any time you're hankering for lobster and privacy, so who could possibly be selling?

Cheers to Kirstie Alley!
The surprise DWTS finalist is looking to unload the 2,048-square-foot vacation retreat she bought in 2003 for $1.15 million and then promptly drenched in Laura Ashley-style decor.
There are fireplaces to warm up by and cozy nooks to hunker down in during those cold New England winters, plus a deck, gardens and outdoor entertaining space to enjoy during the delightful Maine summers. There is also a carriage house on the woodsy grounds and marble countertops in the country-inspired kitchen, per Sotheby's Realty.
While she waits for her house to sell, Alley's time on DWTS continues to inspire. Incoming contestant Ricki Lake said that Alley's successful run on the show is what "pushed [her] over the edge."
"Seeing what happened to her physically, seeing what happened internally," Lake told OntheRedCarpet.com. "You could see on her face, every week, that confidence. You want that feeling."
Kind of like the weight-is-lifted feeling you get when your real estate agent calls to tell you you're in escrow.
