Docked off Westlake Avenue near the crux of Queen Anne and Fremont, this home on the water takes an airy, lodge-like loft design and shrinks it down into a houseboat-sized package. But while 583 square feet is on the small side for a house, it’s big enough on a houseboat curve to keep from compromising too much for space—and a generous wraparound deck adds plenty of extra wiggle room.
The main gathering space sits under a cathedral ceiling, behind a tall wall of windows that’d be at home looking over a bluff or mountain. A loft looks over the area, catching that same light, with a curtain for privacy.
Underneath the loft, a kitchen has far more counter space than the typical houseboat, arranged into a sort of octagon pattern. Find more privacy in a second bedroom tucked in the back of the vessel with a vaulted ceiling and built-in Murphy bed.
2706 Westlake Avenue N Slip 76 is on the market for $445,000 via Cooper Jacobs/Seattle Afloat.
