If fighting the crowds tomorrow night just to see the fireworks isn't really your thing, listen up. This houseboat on Eastlake is a pretty nice find, and the price is right considering the luxury and novelty you're getting out of the deal. 1,900 sq. ft. isn't anything shabby, but when you spread it out and only have two bedrooms you know this place is pretty plush. It's also got a deck, slip rental, and all that jazz you expect from a houseboat. Whatever. The kicker: a friggin' library. You're like Beauty and the Beast on the water, guys! Add to that a prime location for fireworks watching (and, you know, the other 364 days of the year) and you've got yourself quite a catch. The price: $1.69 million. Not cheap, but did you really expect a house this cool to be at all affordable?
