• An Unassuming Seattle Houseboats Sale With Lots Of History

    Seattle houseboats soldSeattle Houseboats SOLD: 

    Closed in escrow this week with not huge fanfare was this quaint and unassuming Seattle floating home – It is one of the most iconic and historic Seattle houseboats in Eastlake, but doesn’t enjoy nearly the same fame as its associate across Lake Union in Westlake nicknamed after one early 1990’s movie (hint: Sleepless In Seattle).

    THIS Seattle floating home has actually been involved in many more people’s lives and was practically a floating dance hall in its hay day.  It has been celebrated and loved by one of Lake Union’s longest time resident in the past, and then rented out over the last few years.  It sold now so, the torch is now officially being passed for a new owner to celebrate their life in it and try to live up to the grand times had here before.

    Molly & LeAnne had it listed and it sold in less than 2 months for $677,500.  It is a 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom floating home built in 1930 and has a rather large float.  The home itself is 1300 square feet and it is a really great place for getting right in there with Lake Union.  Large open big room concept reportedly allowed for a lot of dance parties over the years!

    A quick note: Houseboat D in The Log Foundation will now and forever be nicknamed “Art” affectionately by Molly, LeAnne, and Courtney in honor of its longtime patron.
