Brand-new Portage Bay floating home lists for $2.1 million

Featuring hardwood floors, big views, and, of course, a rooftop deck

With only so many permits and slips to go around, it’s not every day you find a brand-new floating home. And while some floating homes are luxurious with sacrifices, it’s not the case with this modern home, which would be luxurious if someone plopped it down on land, with fancy finishes, fantastic views, and, of course, an abundance of deck space.

The entrance offers a peek at the cedar beneath the exterior grey paint—and after walking through the front door, it leads up a set of stairs to a maple-floored great room that peeks out at the water on three sides.

Along two walls, French doors and sliding glass panels give a seamless indoor-outdoor transition to the middle deck—while giving more the appearance of floor-to-ceiling windows.

Right outside one of those doors, a spiral staircase leads to the largest of the outdoor spaces (and the crown jewel of many a floating home): a roof deck with 360-degree views.

Also on the main floor, an office is tucked away just off the kitchen.

Down below, three bedrooms all open up to the water—two to a lower deck—a perfect launching point for watery adventures. The master even comes with a massive walk-in closet, a rarity for a home atop the lake.

Between the new construction and the floating foundation, this house doesn’t come cheap; it’s listed at $2.1 million.
