Floating A-frame home in Eastlake
Originally built in 1968, 2207 Fairview Ave. E #8 is a renovated A-frame floating house on one of the city’s most sought-after docks. The two-bedroom, one-bathroom Eastlake home offers 980-square-feet of luxe living space with proximity to Lake Union that cannot be beat. The property not only offers access to the lake itself, but also to a unique-to-Seattle lifestyle.
Imagine waking up on a bright summer morning, enjoying coffee on your floating home’s wrap-around deck, then climbing into your kayak for a quick paddle. Not interested in kayaking? Substitute that with an a.m. SUP, swim session or any other watersport you fancy. Later in the afternoon, maybe you’ll catch up with your neighbors at Flo Villa’s end-of-dock community space.
Inside, the first-floor bedroom and the home’s only bathroom sit near the entry way. Beyond that, the space opens into the heart of the home—the kitchen, living room, dining area and deck. The newly remodeled kitchen features sage-colored cabinets, new stainless steel appliances and updated countertops. The dining space and living room sit below a soaring roofline covered by wooden beams and the occasional skylight. A freestanding wood fireplace is meant to keep the space warm and cozy on a crisp day, but the French doors nearby serve to connect the home to the amenities just outside.
A comfy reading or meditation nook with bench seating and plenty of pillows awaits at the top of the stairs. Beyond that, the primary bedroom enjoys natural light, room for additional seating or storage and westward views toward the University Bridge.
