Sun-drenched floating home in Hamlin Cove

By October 9, 2021

Houses, Portage Bay

One of Seattle’s iconic floating homes, 1214 E. Hamlin St. #2 is a three-bedroom property on Portage Bay. More specifically, the home is situated across the bay from the University of Washington and Husky Stadium in the sought-after Hamlin Cove community. Filled with natural light and sweeping water views, this one-of-a-kind property is on the market.

Built in 1974, the space has been lovingly well-maintained over the years. Built-in bench seats line the great room, creating the perfect corner window seat with water views on two sides. Warmed by a gas fireplace, the great room, dining room and kitchen feature vaulted ceilings and vintage wood-wrapped walls throughout. The efficient L-shaped kitchen comes complete with a gas range, dishwasher and a breakfast bar.

Off the kitchen, the primary bedroom reflects the main floor’s design aesthetic—with soaring ceilings, wood-plank walls and built-ins and ample light. The primary ensuite bathroom is functional and well-appointed. Upstairs, two additional bedrooms offer enchanting water views and share a three-fourths bathroom.

The home’s cozy deck is located off the dining room—an ideal and unforgettable space to entertain or relax. Off the deck, there’s a bonus swimming platform, making the bay even more accessible.
