VEVAY, IN (FOX19) -

You can buy a riverfront home for just $199... and as long as you're willing to write an essay.

The home known as the "River House" sits along state road 156 in Vevay and the Ohio River. The home is located 51 miles from Cincinnati. 

At over 4,000 square feet, the home features vaulted ceilings, a fireplace, two jetted tubs, and a great room with panoramic views of the river. And it can all be yours for just $199.

The catch is you have to write a less than 200 word persuasive essay about why the house should be sold to you.

Essays will will be judged by a panel of independent judges provided by Hanover College on four areas: Does it follow the topic? (1 pt.), Is it grammatically correct? (1 pt.), Does it show creativity? (2 pts.), Does it provide inspiration/vision? (6 pts.).

According to the Facebook page, at 4,228 square feet, the River House (not including 1.67 acres on river) would be $399,715.12.

The $199 entry fee payment will go into an escrow account for the sale.

The deadline for the fee and essay has been extended to midnight on November 30. You can submit your entry online at RiverHouseContest.com.
