Lake Union Floating Homes April 2015

Have you been looking at the Seattle Houseboats Real Estate Market lately? Molly and I have! seattle houseboats

If you are looking at floating homes, there are currently just 4 Seattle houseboats for sale in the NWMLS that are marked as Active and not pending in escrow. These floating homes  have a price range spread from $510,000 for the least expensive Eastlake floating home to $1,750,000 at the higher end for a floating home that is newly built  in Portage Bay. The  two  Seattle floating homes for sale in between these values are in the $800k to $1 million dollar listing range.

Lake Union's Westlake 'hood: We just listed an amazing Westlake floating home.  It's the ultimate in a Seattle waterfront home and as a result, it is getting a great deal of showings.  Here are some additional bits for this Westlake floating home listing located at  2420 Westlake Ave N:

  • 2 Bedrooms (this is pretty good for houseboat standards, FYI)
  • 1.5 baths ( two .75 bathrooms so great for sharing this floating home)
  • incredible rooftop deck
  • 1065 sq ft (huge by Seattle houseboats standards and doesn't include the insane deluxe rooftop)
  • Completely redone in 2008 (originally built in 1929)
  • Unheard of Fractional ownership in a dock owned private marina that is a source of income  to the  cooperative owners
  • this is  a pet friendly dock (if you have looked at Seattle houseboats, then you know this is not always how it is)
  • special master suite from which floating home dreams are made of (You may think that you ended up at Seattle's Four Seasons instead of your floating home)

seattle houseboatsHere is the full listing description from the NWMLS for this Westlake floating home: 

"Whether you are looking for the serenity and inspiration of a lake home or you want to invite all your friends over for a party on your roof top deck, this is the one you have been waiting for. This gorgeous Westlake floating home is dialed in and located on a pet friendly and very sought after dock in Lake Union! Completely remodeled in 2008 with all new surfaces and appliances plus immaculate upstairs master suite and another bedroom/office on the main level. Lots of storage and extras!"
