Seattle is one of the few cities where you can actually live on a houseboat and have it be a proper home. With that in mind, there are some pretty spectacular floating homes gracing the shores of Lake Union. So this week we’re taking things over to Portage Bay to see just how spectacular life on the water can be.
Extraordinary Homes: 2822 Boyer Ave E SLIP 11
This 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom, over 1,000 sqft home offers a rare end of dock living experience. Its A-frame design and location offer show-stopping views through its massive floor-to-ceiling windows. An open floor plan and wrap-around deck give the home a large feel while remaining relatively small. It’s a great place to entertain or chill out and watch everything happening on the bay.
The loft bedroom and wood-burning fireplace really give this place a cabin in the city feel. We can’t imagine a better way to spend a Seattle winter than by curling up next to the fireplace and watching the rain hit the bay outside. It’s really truly a Seattle dream home.
The wood-heavy interior will give you all the PNW vibes you could ever ask for. Not to mention, unique features like solar remote-controlled skylights with electric auto rain-sensing capabilities help to bring the outdoors in. You also get to enjoy a well-run and pet-friendly dock with parking, on-shore storage, and even ownership of the dock to the north. This home really has it all.
It’ll cost you $2.5 million but hey that’s Seattle for you these days. If you’d like to learn more or check out the home further you can click here. Enjoy and happy house hunting folks!
