This Lake Union houseboat costs less than $500,000 and is utterly cute

Seattle has plenty of prime waterfront real estate, but it doesn’t get much closer to the water than living there in a houseboat. That’s why today we’re looking at a house that’s less large in scale, but certainly unique in its floating location. Let’s take a look at a main Lake Union houseboat.

This bright green little houseboat is called Pacena and is a classic houseboat inherited from Seattle’s Lake Union. It is conveniently located along the Burke Gilman Trail between the University of Washington and Fremont. This means that not only will you have the water right outside your door, but you’ll also have back door access to Seattle’s best multi-use trail.

Because this is a houseboat, it won’t have the square footage of other homes on the market. That being said, Pacena has everything you need, bathroom, kitchen, bedroom, and even an additional loft, all tucked into 600 square feet. If you ask us, that sounds like the perfect setup for a minimalist.

What sets Pacena apart from other houseboats of similar sizes are its wood paneled wall and ceiling accents and hardwood floors. They add an extra nautical vibe to the interior and also a bit of heritage flair. Additionally, Pacena was hauled in December for a bottom cleaning and paint job on both the exterior and roof. So for $350,000, everything is pretty much out of the box.
