Docked in Lake Union just off Eastlake, this three-bedroom, two-bathroom floating home has a lot of headlines: Because of the on-the-water location, lake views are the norm. A two-tiered roof deck provides plenty of space for outdoor entertainment and nearly doubles the square footage. The colorful interior is punctuated by plenty of stained glass.

The 1971-built home is cute and colorful on approach, with bright blue shingles and plenty of space for container gardening—with the stoop currently surrounded by flower-filled hanging baskets. Even the front Dutch door greets visitors with a pop of rainbow in the window. The 880-square-foot interior continues the whimsical, colorful vibe, with wood-slat ceilings, a creative variety of stained-glass windows, and rounded wood-slat ceilings for a nautical vibe.

The roof deck starts with a partially-covered patio, creating a kind of outdoor living room, ready for barbecues. The gathering space extends to an upper deck for basking in the sun and taking in the lake views (or the Fourth of July fireworks).

The home is listed for $865,000.

A variation on a Palladian window incorporates stained glass into its larger panels.
Behind the living and dining area, a colorful kitchen boasts not only bright tile work, but plenty of counter and cabinet space.
A master bedroom has plenty of closet space and its own Dutch door to home’s back deck.
The bedroom’s triangular stained-glass window is a starburst of blue and green.
Off a second living area or den there’s a massive two-tier deck, adding more than 600 feet of space to the home.
The second tier of the deck gives big Lake Union views.
