You've heard of a pied-à-terre. How about a "pied-à-mer?" Unit B at 3125 Fairview Ave E markets itself as such in its recent listing for $586K. The 730 sq. ft. 2-BR floating home has all of the comforts of a land-based house but, you know, floating on Lake Union. It's a lot easier to tie your sailboat or runabout alongside your front door this way. The view roof deck with glass railing offers a great perch to look out across on Wallingford and Gas Works Park. Not a shabby spot for July 4th fireworks. A sign currently hanging on the house reads, "Life is better at the lake." Hard to argue.
