This cliffhanger has a happy ending.

A Caledonia house on the verge of falling off a crumbling bluff into Lake Michigan has sold after months on the market.

The new owner will likely demolish the house and reinforce the eroded cliff before building something new on the 11 acres of lakefront property.

The sale, in late April, hasn't stopped people on social media from reacting with surprise to the dramatic drone photos included with the listing. Posts about the home from the account "Zillow Gone Wild" have garnered attention in recent days.

"Let me just step ou- OHMYGOD," one commenter joked on Instagram.

The monthslong saga to sell the house at 7009 Novak Road was first reported by the Racine Journal Times.
