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.
