Sleepless in Seattle Houseboat

The Sleepless in Seattle houseboat – I guess we can’t very well have a Seattle houseboats and floating homes blog without having at least one story or post about the Sleepless in Seattle Houseboat!

It is a gorgeous home, but the fact of the matter is I heard that Tom Hanks didn’t film many of the scenes inside the actual floating home in Seattle. The exterior shots of him, though, are pretty unforgettable, and it brings many people out in droves as one of the must see items in Seattle. (ps – I took this picture a long time ago before a paint job)

Spotting the Sleepless in Seattle Houseboat: Unless you are on a boat, though, or across the lake with a telephoto lens, you are going to have a tough time getting a peek at this iconic Hollywood Seattle floating home. The dock is privately owned. Your best shot actually at seeing the Sleepless in Seattle houseboat if you are in town and don’t have a boat of your own to tool around Lake Union is to take the Ride The Ducks Tour by the Seattle Center. Try and sit on the right side of the bus/boat and wait for the tour guide to point it out along the way. The Sleepless in Seattle Houseboat is on the end of its Westlake dock and pretty significant in size compared to other floating homes.

Larger and not typical of Seattle floating homes – Keep in mind if you are thinking about buying a floating home that this particular houseboat is not very typical of Seattle floating homes in general. It is actually pretty spectacular even compared to the more modern Roanoke Reef floating homes or even the modern stucco 3000 square feet floating homes going in on the Eastlake side of Lake Union over the last few years. The Sleepless in Seattle Houseboat has one of the largest if not the largest floats in Lake Union and is also the furthest out on any of the docks that I can think of. The float size is an astounding 68 feet by 40 feet and offers wrap around decks! I would love to get a look at the dive inspection report for this one to see what is under there with the log foundation holding it up.

Putting aside the fact that it is well over 2000 square feet in size and has four bedrooms, these other individual characteristics set it apart pretty significantly. The Sleepless in Seattle houseboat will always hold a special place in my heart.

Seattle Floating Homes MLS Market Highlight

Seattle’s Eastlake Neighborhood: The sun is peeking out here and there in Seattle’s Eastlake neighborhood today. In Seattle we seem to get all seasons rotating throughout the day so you never know what to wear – I end up keeping a fleece in the car most of the time.

I was actually down on the Eastlake houseboat docks previewing a brand new listing for a floating home on The Log Foundation dock – one of them anyway.    There are two Eastlake floating homes for sale right there in that part of Fairview currently  – both in the upper $700k range in the MLS.

2025 Fairview Ave E – Houseboat E is a great new Seattle floating home MLS listing put on by Jennifer Nelson (photos courtesy of Jennifer Nelson). It is spacious and bright with wide open spaces and tons of great professionally remodeled touches while keeping the traditional Seattle houseboat charm intact.

Enjoy the expansive master suite like no other in the floating homes colony and colorful gardening from your rooftop deck and lower decks.  The view of Lake Union and the city is impressive to say the least.

Other perks of this floating home on The Log Foundation dock? How about the fact that this dock is highly maintained and the dues are low.

This home also happens to be right on the Cheshiahud Loop (Lake Union Loop) and very close to the streetcar for great access into Downtown Seattle.  Eastlake is already known for its easy commuting attributes, but you literally could live car less on this dock with no lack of convenience.  This one is open 1-4 on Sunday or feel free to get in touch with me for a private tour anytime.

I adore that part of Fairview and Eastlake in general quite a bit.  The sun wasn’t out until half way through my tour this AM, but hopefully it will warm up as those big puffy clouds float around the sky.

If you want to go on a houseboat tour and see one of the floating homes available in Eastlake or Westlake right now let me know.  There is a great starter priced floating home in Westlake at $365,500 (Westlake Cove)and then there are three in Eastlake  – the two on The Log Foundation docks and then one at Roanoke Reef.  All are great options at various price points for Seattle floating homes.

I think they might have a lot of cats for one floating home, but that is my own personal opinion – doesn’t seem to make their quality of life go down at all!
