…I might have lived on a houseboat.   Seriously, I’ve always thought I’d like to live on a body of water.  I have never wanted to live right on the ocean but give me a bay, lake, brook or pond and I think I’d be in heaven.

This is the Sleepless in Seattle houseboat

That’s why when I saw the movie, “Sleepless in Seattle” (Tom Hanks & Meg Ryan) I was totally in love with the houseboat Tom Hank’s character live in.  It came on the market in 2008 for only $2.5 million {yikes}.  The houseboat is 2,075 square feet and was built in 1978.  It has 4 bedrooms and “nearly” 2 full baths (this is a direct quote from the ad that ran).

This has possibilities.

I was surprised at the square footage—it’s bigger than my own house and has 1 more bedroom than mine.  Just imagine living on the bay or lake or whatever that body of water is, hearing the water gently lap up the sides of your house at night.  Ahhh, what could be more relaxing that that?

Surprisingly roomy!

What do you think, could you live on a houseboat?
