Houseboat With A View

Houseboat With A View
By Brian Olsen, Cooper Jacobs Real Estate
 
Here is a Lake Union Houseboat listed for sale at $340,000. This delightful structure is only a short walk away from Gas Works Park. It has two decks with views and approximately 300 square feet of  outdoor space to BBQ and enjoy Seattle views. This houseboat was just put back into Lake Union after being cleaned underneath and approved by the surveyor. There is a spacious bedroom, sleeping loft and full bathroom along with many new upgrades to make things ship shape. The dock out to the houseboat begins with a cabana for guests that have their own showers. Another lifestyle benefit of this dock is that it’s condo moorage. This means the property owners own the slips where the houseboats are attached. Simply, a more cost effective way to approach Seattle waterfront living. Come see this wonderful opportunity to be on the water and have kayaks, fishing poles etc right there.
 
New financing opportunities have recently surfaced and worth exploring. Want to own instead of rent? Good idea! To view this listing(NWMLS# 252985), please contact Brian Olsen at 206.898.3627. We can also schedule a tour to include other Seattle houseboats around Lake Union and Portage Bay.       
 
 

Houseboat For Sale

I try to think of catchy titles when I write.  But today, I’m going to get right to the point.  I’ve got a houseboat for sale in Seattle.

There are a few other houseboats for sale around Lake Union and even one in Nickerson Marina (between Ballard and Fremont bridges).  How do they stack up?  First let’s start with the moorage of these beauties.  You have two options.  Lease or own.  Leasing allows you to enjoy monthly flexibility without the price fluctuating much.  Owning allows you right of ownership and resale value.  Which one is right for you?  Sometimes it depends on the houseboat you fall in love with.  Other times it’s knowing you have more versatility with your investment.

It’s a personal decision.

2143 North Northlake Way #18 offers a unique opportunity to own your slip AND your new beautiful houseboat.  It’s a smashing one bedroom + loft houseboat built in 2000 with loads of charm and freedom.

When you’re looking at buying a houseboat, space is a premium … including OUTSIDE SPACE.  This one has it!  

Two decks combining 300 square feet to enjoy those BIG southwest views on active Lake Union.  2143 North Northlake Way # 18 measures 33.5′ x 10.3′.  There is a 50 amp tower, 125 gallon gray water holding tank, 35 gallon black water holding tank and roughly 650 square feet.  A new hull was designed in 2006, new floors, carpet, remodeled kitchen, new marine toliet and the list goes on.

Whether you’re buying it for yourself or as an investment to rent out, the lifestyle is one only Seattle can offer.

 

Gas Works Marina offers a cozy cabana for those extra guests (boys and girls showers and bathrooms!) and a coin operated laundry service.  Pride of ownership here!

What Can I Say? I Am In Love With Lake Union

Yes, I do love Lake Union!  Here is a great shot I got of Lake Union from Gas Works Park while I was checking out the  collection of stand up paddle boards at Urban Surf (they have a great selection of SUP boards along with all kinds of other great gear) on Northlake…..  You can see over to the right across the lake the colorful Seattle houseboats at Roanoke Reef.  I love the flowers on the ground!
