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.
