This is not a houseboat. But this could be your new floating house.

While there are defining features of floating homes that set them apart from houseboats (float homes have cement bases, while they don't have motors to propel them on water), the features of this home also set it up from any detached property.

So, if you want to live in Toronto, but entertain like you're in Muskoka, this New York-style two-bedroom, 1.5 bath is the place for you.

Can you imagine if this were your living room? You're starting to get aboard this whole float home idea, right?

No. You're not imagining things. It really did just get better. Just wait. It gets EVEN better.

Of course those are professional stainless steel appliances — and they are Jennair. You'll surely need them as a professional entertainer in this float home.


By the by, the upper deck has over 700 square feet of outdoor space — with a pergola and garden and storage shed ... and ... Well, there's just too much to mention. So, please, take the video tour for yourself!

(P.S. You won't be able to see the heated floors, but you'll certainly feel them on the second storey.)
