We discovered one of Seattle’s coveted floating homes has gone up for sale. The home has prime waterfront position on Lake Union with views of Gas Works Park. Local architect firm Vandeventer + Carlander used an inverted floor plan to fit in multiple outdoor spaces and a bedroom overlooking the water’s edge.
The rectangular, two-story home is set on a concrete float that’s 24 feet wide and 44 feet long. Outside features glass-fronted facade and terraces. The 1,600 square feet of interior features an open room with kitchen, living and dining areas that connect to the two terraces via folding glass doors.
On the lower level are two bedrooms and two full bathrooms. The white oak floors running all throughout the interior, and the built-in cabinetry made of white oak and afromosia African wood is stunning.
The home is docked at Roanoke Reef Marina, a floating community located along the eastern side of Lake Union just across from downtown Seattle.
This floating abode can be yours for $3.5M.
