As I’ve mentioned before, I’m house-hunting. And when you’ve been on the hunt as long as I have, you spend late nights combing through Zillow. At 10:30 p.m., I was in the middle of this nightly ritual when I came across a floating house.

I have never heard of floating homes before, but this one is wicked cute. It’s located off Buzzards Bay in the Fairhaven Shipyard. It has a sea-faring charm about it that draws me in. Built in 1912, 50 Fort Street, Unit 1 was listed on Monday, January 18 at just under $310,000. This 1,820 square-foot home has two or three bedrooms, depending on usage, and two full bathrooms.

The home also features:

  • Beautiful hardwood floors throughout
  • Charming craftsmanship
  • An abundance of natural light pouring in
  • Modernly updated eat-in kitchen
  • Lovely living room
  • Decent-sized dining room
  • First-floor bedroom
  • First-floor full bath
  • One or two bedrooms on the second floor
  • Second-floor full bath
  • Second-floor laundry

Based on the photos alone, I considered this place as an epic Airbnb property before I even read it in the listing. While I’m not currently in the market for a rental property, I think this would be a great investment for someone who is looking to make more than sand dollars with this home on the sea.
