What does a $2.850 million floating home look like in Seattle? Step inside the Hawk’s Nest, a luxury abode nestled on Lake Union, with postcard-ready views from every angle.
While many floating home interiors blend together, that isn’t the case in the Hawk’s Nest. Everything in this home is custom. There’s “custom built-in cabinetry, from the living room to the guest bathroom to the master bedroom to the office,” wrote the seller. And don’t miss the custom nautically-inspired coffee table.
This floating home hasn’t always floated. It was designed and built off-site in Washougal, then installed at 2466 Westlake Ave. N., #12 by Jim Boesel, former editor of Fine Woodworking Magazine. The incredible woodwork we see throughout is a testament to Boesel’s artistry.
The home, with its two-story ceilings, sauna, and roof deck has been featured on HGTV and in the New York Times, and now could be yours. Take a tour by scrolling down.
The home has multiple decks for enjoying the location.
Included with this property: an accessory raft, boat mooring, and city parking for three cars.
The home is two stories, and the tall ceilings let in a flood of natural light.
Another deck for alfresco living.
The dining room and kitchen flow together.
There are three bedrooms and two bathrooms.
Your own sauna is part of the deal.
Not a bad set up for a home office.
Custom built-ins abound.
The roof deck offers picture-perfect views of Lake Union’s beauty and vibrancy.
Thanks to its outer slip orientation, the Hawk’s Nest offers unobstructed, breathtaking views of Gasworks Park and downtown Seattle.
