A Million Dollar Houseboat
The luxurious houseboat is perfectly named ‘Temple of Light’ as its wood walls glow with the warmth of the flooding natural light. This chic floating dream house is worth $998,000 and has everything so ravishingly perfect about it that justifies the price. In total, the boathouse offers true waterfront living, with three bedrooms and two full baths, not to mention this gorgeous common space. It’s currently docked in Sausalito, California.
Like many of the 450 floating homes in the area, 20 Gate 6 1/2 Rd has bohemian beginnings in the 1960s, as a 1-room A-frame balanced on pontoons. In the 1980s, a previous owner raised up the original house and put it on a 100,000-pound concrete barge. That owner then added a second story and a dormer for the kitchen, squeezing 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms into the 1,748-square-foot home. The deck includes a hot tub, and from the sleeping loft you can look out across the home’s great room out the windows to Mount Tamalpais. But the A-frame windows are what make the home ethereal — nothing but water and light.
