Description: Seattle is one of the few American cities that offers a substantial number of floating homes. For anyone who likes to be around the water, that can make for an attractive, "Sleepless in Seattle" lifestyle.

This one was built in 1904 and recently went through a "green" renovation using reclaimed vintage wood from old buildings. It floats on Portage Bay just minutes from downtown Seattle.

The interior boasts hardwood floors, skylights, lovely woodwork and many built-in cabinets. There are also high ceilings, a wood-burning fireplace and a well appointed kitchen for the serious cook.
