This incredible new construction home is a Portage Bay water oasis. It was built recently with all state of the art systems and flotation. It’s extremely rare to find a Portage Bay newer construction floating home that has views and is surrounded by water on three sides. It’s even harder to find a newer floating home that checks all the boxes including rooftop, boat slip, garage parking, and a basement. Yes, you read that correctly. It has a basement. And a garage!
Loaded with upgrades that you will only see in the most stately of homes on land or water, this Portage Bay new construction home is a luxury stunner. The bedrooms are on the water level so that you can lull yourself to sleep with the lapping water. There is great deck access at this level to access your boat or take in a dip in the hot tub after a trip out in the kayak or SUP. The main bedroom closet and bathroom suite will blow you away with high end finishes and enough room for all your shoes and clothing.
This was one of the last three Portage Bay new construction floating homes to have a basement area. The basement offers a flexible amount of peaceful underwater and quiet space. If you have ever wanted a large theatre room with perfect acoustics then this might be the place. As it currently sits, there is a large family/rec room, large craft/storage room for all your gear, laundry and half bath, plus a cool organization system at the base of the stairs. There is a hatch at this level as well for coming up to the deck directly.
Let’s go back up the stairs of this Portage Bay masterpiece! Upstairs, the modern but comfortable floor plan is incredible with open air living right out to the water facing deck. The gleaming kitchen is a cook’s dream with upscale appliances and views of the lake all around. Enjoy meals in the large dining area or warm up in the living room with sleek fireplace. There’s another casual sitting area on the other side of the kitchen that is a little more private with a half bath on this level off of that area.
If you happen to be extremely popular and have more guests than this large level will allow, then have them go up the wide staircase to the expansive roof top deck. This rooftop is the largest we have seen and has space for dining, lounging, playing, plus a cool firepit.
Except for the basement which offers peace and solitude, the views are incredible from every other level of this Portage Bay new construction home in different ways. At the water level and upstairs you will be drenched in reflective light off of the water. The water level views are of the surrounding smaller parts of the bay and largely south facing. In addition, you can see out to the main part of the bay through the channel. Upstairs, you can see the same views from higher up plus larger main Portage Bay views. You will feel like you are on top of the world as this Portage Bay new construction home was built to take in the views all around and in all directions. Bridge to bridge, you will be mesmerized by the Seattle Yacht Club sailing lessons, or just watching the constant boat parade from the two neighboring yacht clubs.

This is an oasis in itself and offers the very best in quick grocery items as well as espresso, a gelato bar, fresh bakery items including quite possibly the world’s best chocolate chip cookies in three packs, and a small menu with a big punch. You can order breakfast, artisan hand made sandwiches, creative salads, and wood fired pizza which gently spreads its sweet sent through out the neighborhood.
