The Skinny: The calm bays and inlets that surround Seattle are some of the finest waters for houseboating in the country, but for a devoted landlubber who wants to experience "on-the-water" living without shacking up in a glorified floating bathtub, the city offers up this $1.03 million home anchored to the hillside. With a wall of glass that faces a row of houseboats, it’s not far from the lifestyle, but without the inevitable headaches. Built in 1988, the three-story structure houses two bedrooms and 2.5 baths in more than 2,500 square feet, along with expansive deck space for outdoor entertaining.
