The 900-square-foot home is adorable inside and out

Located in a tree-lined corner of a Lake Union dock under the Aurora Bridge—right before Westlake becomes Fremont—this floating home, named “Cottage at Land’s Edge,” has an extremely dreamy setting going for it. But it has its own design to match, too, starting with a bright blue exterior offset by white trim, a wraparound deck, and French doors.

On the inside, an open living room and kitchen—subtly segmented by exposed-grain ceiling beams—get natural light from picture windows. In one corner, a wood stove provides additional warmth and ambiance. Facing land on one side and water on the other, the views both give the impression of a remote cabin and a waterfront home. The main floor also includes a bedroom and a utility room, but the real showstopper is upstairs, where a den and a large deck blend into an indoor/outdoor gathering space.

2766 Westlake Ave N Unit A is listed for $845,000, not including $390 a month in homeowners’ dues for the cooperatively owned dock, through Special Agents Realty.

A cozy living room has more of the cabin vibe, with windows facing foliage and a wood stove.
The kitchen maximizes space by partially tucking underneath the staircase.
Just off the kitchen, the home’s one bedroom provides a decent amount of space for a floating home and includes a built-in wardrobe.
Upstairs, a vaulted, exposed-grain ceiling tops a den space. French doors allow the indoor space to blend into an outdoor deck.
The home’s upper deck is expansive, with room for both soft seating and a large, outdoor dining area.
Surrounding plantings add a more woodsy vibe to the big, waterfront views.
