Brand New Seattle Houseboats Listing!
Welcome to Life Afloat on Lake Union!
The Seattle Floating Homes Market In General: If you have been watching the Seattle houseboats market at all, then you know that there have not been a lot to choose from as of late. Seattle floating homes have trickled onto the market very slowly and many have sold off market as demand increases. It is our pleasure to introduce this gem into the mix as it is a great spot to call home in Seattle!
Rare second from the end South facing Lake Union floating home in Eastlake with incredible features. Great interior spaces, French Doors to the back deck which opens up to a large channel and easy Lake action.
Enjoy relaxing in your “backyard” on your grandfathered in accessory float, plus there is space to put your own small boat alongside. Coveted Co-Op Owned Lake Union Moorage Slip and a well maintained floating home all on one of the most well run docks in the city. This is truly an opportunity and it isnt often that these come up so close to the end of the dock. $725,000
Some of the basics on this Seattle floating home for sale:
- 1 Bedroom
- 1 Bath
- 900 Square Feet
- Large decks and storage areas
- Owned Moorage
- Accessory Float is “grandfathered in”
- Room for a boat along side

Although it is almost always more expensive dollar per square foot to purchase a Seattle houseboat, the low dues and low taxes make this home more affordable than a land home overall. They are quite a unique way to live in the city and we would be happy to tell you about it. Let us know, please, if you are interested in seeing this Seattle floating home or other Seattle houseboats for sale.

Seattle houseboats on Lake Union In Eastlake
In the MLS, there is one Seattle floating home pending, but we sold an additional off market Seattle floating home on the Roanoke Reef dock in the last couple of weeks and so we know of two pending overall. The three bedroom over at Portage Bay Place is 1500 square feet and listed for $750,000. It is currently pending in escrow so we will keep you posted on what it sells for. The Roanoke Reef floating home we sold is on the coveted front row of the Roanoke Reef dock located at 10 E Roanoke Street in Seattle’s Eastlake neighborhood. The asking price? $2,150,000. It is scheduled to close soon so we can share additional details after it closes, but are very excited to have been able to facilitate this one.
Overall, it is the same story: Low Inventory. Seattle houseboats are the ultimate in Seattle Waterfront Living℠ so there is always a demand. We have several cash buyers waiting to pounce on the right one, so let us know if you are even thinking about selling. We know our Seattle houseboats buyers well and can tell immediately if your home will be a good fit for them or if you would be better served to put it on the open market. We look forward to hearing from you and hope you have a lovely Spring and Summer!
