The five-bedroom, 4,400-square-foot home, which sits on Lake Michigan and is located just an hour from Milwaukee, was designed by architect Margaret McCurry in 2005. Its nickname was derived from its sunny exterior and colorful windows, though it has no affiliation with crayon company Crayola.

“People call it the Lego house or the clown house. It’s really postmodern. It’s what we saw in the late ’80s and early ’90s with bright colors and atypical shapes,” Handle added.

The previous homeowners, Judith Bentley and her husband Paul Bentley, purchased the three-acre plot of land in Lake Michigan in 1999 and paid $1.2 million to build the home with some help from McCurry, Bloomberg reported.
