Hot Property: Lake Union Luxury Floating Home

Where: 2369 Fairview Ave, Seattle

Hot Factor: The floating home at Fairview Landing sits on the calm waters of Lake Union just minutes from downtown. The experience of visiting this property is fascinating in itself. Once you park your car and stroll through the security gate, you will be immediately mesmerized by the privacy and exclusivity of this community of seven floating homes.

This particular location is equipped with all the modern luxuries found in Seattle’s most prodigious multi-million dollar homes. The interior is masterfully designed, complete with impeccable hardwood floors, a master suite with full bath and closet, spacious island kitchen with limestone counters, zebra-wood cabinets and a stunning custom gas fireplace. Adjacent to the main living area is a spacious deck and spiral staircase that leads to a breathtaking rooftop surface with 270-degree views — the perfect setting for a summertime dinner party that will leave your neighbors envious.

Finally, there is the floor that sits 12 feet below the lake’s surface. The highlights of this underwater space include a full-sized bedroom, laundry facilities, wine cellar and guest bath — not to mention porthole-shaped windows that provide visual access to the surrounding aquatic beauty. Simply put, every element of this home is spectacular.
