    Default $825,000 Floating Home on Seattle's Portage Bay

    $825K Portage Bay Floating Home Has Luxuries of Land Living

    If you saw this two-story Craftsmanwith 2 bedrooms and 1.75 baths in, say, Magnolia, you'd think it was a decent-looking home. Nice bones and well-kept. But throw in the fact that it's actually a floating home in Portage Bay and you've got yourself an $825K price tag with views and location to back it up. For the floating home owner who still likes the idea of living in an actual home, this 960 sf abode offers all the amenities you'd hope for (marble countertops, plenty of windows, nice bathrooms) while also providing the kind that you can only get when the house foundation floats on water (dock patio, space to tie up your kayak). Since it's part of a dock co-op, you'll have to kick in $305/mo. in dues. But for a location that gives you a straight-shot through the Montake Cut into Lake Washington, it's still probably worth it.

    I would love to have it. I used to drive by these every day and always thought it was very cool to be right on the water.

    The price per sq foot doesn't seem too crazy expensive for a metropolitan area, on the water. I'd love to have a houseboat. I'd burn that bed spread though.

    And I love this type of photography for the coloring aspects of it, but the way that it distorts the perspective gives me a headache sometimes.

    Good in the event of an earthquake I guess.

    I hate the bedspread. I don't like the black and white striped sofa, but I like the room it's in. I like all the glass and light.

    Love the kitchen.

    I don't like the low ceilings in the bedrooms.

    I don't think there is enough dramamine in the world for me to live on it. It's pretty though.

    Great if you don't have kids or pets.

    I lived on a houseboat for 3 months and loved every bit of it. I'm talking small though, easy to keep clean.

    I LOVE the style and look of this kind of house, but I think it'd need to be on a Caribbean island rather than Seattle as far as warmth and weather for me, and even then, probably not my full-time home. Because I can pick and choose like that, you know.

    It was between houses, and honestly, I could have stayed to this day but we had a husky and a husky/Shepard at the time. I still see the landlord around town and he'd love to have us back.
