Lake Union Waterfront Real Estate

Lake Union is a freshwater lake that sits just north of downtown Seattle as well as the name of the community that lies on its east and west shores. It’s primarily surrounded by floating homes, houseboats, vessel marinas and commercial business, though there are surprisingly few waterfront homes, other than some condos that sit on the lake’s east side. It became famous after being spotlighted in the 1990s hit film “Sleepless in Seattle, with Tom Hanks character living in one of the floating homes. Unlike what most people think, understand when you’re looking for Lake Union waterfront real estate that these aren’t houseboats, but rather homes that are permanently attached to a dock, designed to be moved into place once and typically moved again, and are often a part of condominium or cooperative associations.
