Fairview Ave Houseboat Highlight

Dockside from the Willow Dock, you can see the roof top and all the beautiful surroundings here...

This has to be the best Seattle floating homes buy on Fairview Ave E in Eastlake.

This peaceful floating home has 1930 characteristics, but modern sensibilities – look no further than the gleaming hardwoods and modern slate bathroom for comfortable touches, but also don’t miss the fact that this particular houseboat has gas on the dock. The gas is on the dock and also in the home itself! There is a cozy gas fireplace in the living room to warm up on those gray days with.

We get a lot of calls for Lake Union moorage and this special floating home does have moorage with room for a couple boats depending on size.  One of the biggest surprises to people looking for houseboats is that they don’t all have moorage attached to them or even available. Not only does hti sone have it abundantly, but the slip for the house itself is also owned with low dues and a pet friendly dock.  It really has all the items on most people’s list for Seattle floating homes (even the roof top deck!)

We have had many people say this is the best priced Seattle houseboat on Lake Union and we agree – let us know if you want a private tour of what life afloat could be like here.

  • 2 Bedrooms Plus Sleeping Loft
  • Room to go up
  • Lake Union Moorage
  • gas fireplace
  • remodeled slate bath with modern fixtures
  • walk around deck
  • special customized ramp to adjust for differences in Lake level throughout the year.
  • co-op owned dock
  • low taxes and low dues
