House Boat on water


Just think—you’ll never be sleepless in Seattle! You can be rocked into a blissful REM state every night on Washington’s tranquil Lake Union in a brand-new, outrageously luxurious houseboat.

So if you’re up for a fluid living arrangement, you’re in luck: This unique residence has just been marked down to $1.2 million.

The home initially floated onto the market in November for $1,565,000, but the currents of the market since then forced a price reduction.

Known as Solstice, the 1,573-square-foot houseboat was designed, built, and certified by a naval architect.



Solstice has two bedrooms, two baths, three balconies, and a 532-square-foot rooftop deck, which is pretty much the home’s outdoor space, unless you consider the entire lake is a playground.

The rooms are generously sized, and the kitchen is equipped with full-size, stainless-steel appliances. It also comes with an island, gas range, and dining and storage space.



The washer and dryer are tucked under a staircase, and a cleverly designed office alcove features a built-in desk. No square inch goes unused here.

Frills include an outdoor barbecue, hardwood floors throughout, a walk-in closet, and even a dumbwaiter. The houseboat is three floors, after all, and you absolutely must have some way to transport frothy cocktails to the top floor.

You can keep cozy on a dark and stormy night with in-floor hydronic heat and on-demand propane heat. A sturdy aluminum hull will withstand heavy storms.

The houseboat is docked in a marina in a walkable neighborhood, close to the heart of Lake Union and superb hiking and biking trails. Lake Union itself is an outdoor mecca constantly buzzing with activity from sailboats to seaplanes, as well as water sports, kayaking, and paddleboarding.

This beautiful houseboat might be just the reason to set sail on a new lifestyle in the Pacific Northwest.
