The Sausalito floating home community, a tight-knit group of maritime residents, consists of more than 400 houseboats. So noted are these homes that you can tour of the charming collective of architectural treasures every summer.
But why tour the seaside lifestyle when you can live it? If you’ve tired of San Francisco’s daily strife—and have money to burn—you can snatch your very own houseboat today.
Featuring two bedrooms and two bathrooms, 46 South 40 Dock is on offer for $799,000. The circa-1990 floating abode comes with vaulted ceilings, exposed beams, a working fireplace, skylights, and hardwood flooring.
It also features unobstructed views of the bay, with Tiburon and Angel Island off in the distance. You can see it from the outdoor deck. And the white-picket fence at the gate is utterly charming.
