Whether it’s a picturesque farm in Vermont or a dreamy cabin in the woods, some properties prompt dreams of running away from it all. With this adorable houseboat, however, you could live on the waters of Lake Union and yet still be 15 minutes from downtown Seattle.
The one-bedroom, one-bath cabin-style houseboat is one of 250 city-approved houseboats on Lake Union. While the exterior features a woodsy green and timber look, the living room is bright and airy with vaulted ceilings and an electric fireplace. A black and white kitchen features quartz countertops and new appliances, and the rear of the home boasts a master bedroom that’s large enough for a queen.
A sleeping loft is accessed from a wooden ladder in the living room, but the real star of the houseboat is its deck. The 132-square-foot deck almost doubles the size of the living room, gets southwestern sun exposure, and is covered so it can even be used in winter.
