If you saw this two-story Craftsman with 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.
