Would You Live in Seattle if You Owned This $2.4 M House? [PICS]
If you happen to be in the market for a new home and your criteria include an amazing view, a private rooftop deck, full underwater basement with a home theater, TWO boat slips and, oh yeah... it floats on water (and you have a $2.4 million budget!) we have just the home for you.
The other day, we posted pictures of the most expensive home currently on the market in Yakima. One commenter on our Facebook page said,
OK, fine. We get it. Yakima may not be for everyone. That said, there are likely the same percentage of people that would say that about Seattle. With that, I found something comparable in that price range on the west side of the Cascades.
It's a 2,200 square foot FLOATING home on Lake Union! Built in 2009, this 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom house has as many spots to park your boat collection as it does bathrooms!
The description on Windermere Realty Agent Adam Cobb's website sums it up pretty well...
"Lake Union reflects into this spectacular 3-story floating home w/full underwater floor. Boundless Seattle skyline & water views on rooftop deck. Plenty of moorage (2 slips) – get on your boat and go! Blue Mediterranean inspired rooftop tiles. Chef-friendly open epicurean kitchen.
Bamboo flooring on main, radiant heat flooring throughout. 3 bds [sic] – one includes deck & gas fireplace. 2 baths – one w/ jetted deep tub, sauna. Swim, paddle, ponder on the water; it’s not just a home, it’s a lifestyle."
...but, I think that you'll agree, words do not do these pictures of the home and property the true justice this unbelievable house deserves.

Here is a virtual video tour of the home and property that is, frankly, pretty breathtaking.
I don't know about you but I think I could get used to that "lifestyle" pretty darn quick!
My only criticism or concern about this fantastic floating house? Which one of my friends would be the first to tilt a few cold ones back while sitting on the deck and wind up all wet?
