This Vibrant Two-Story Houseboat Is Up for Grabs in Sausalito for $1.33M

By Kathryn M.
The unforgettably colorful exterior hides a calming and contemporary interior.

Another darling floating home in Sausalito has hit the market. Like Shel Silverstein’s former balloon barge that's currently up for sale, this two-story residence comes with a boatload of charm—pun intended.

While the home at 50 Issaquah Dock boasts a bright, whimsical facade, its interior portrays a sleek, calmer aesthetic. A double-height interior enhance the sense of space throughout.

Behind an instantly recognizable facade of magenta, golden yellow, and red, hides an unexpectedly calm, airy retreat filled with natural light. Inside, an all-white color palette contrasts with pale hardwoods, and a double-story living area enhances the interior living space. Featuring two bedrooms and one bath, the home also offers a loft-like office space, as well as a newly remodeled kitchen and outdoor terrace. The rear dock provides room for a motorboat, too. 

Gray subway tiles add a muted color tone in the renovated kitchen, which features all new appliances, as well as ample countertop space and cabinetry. 

The home asks $1,335,000, and an open house is in the works. A virtual tour is offered here. Until then, scroll ahead to see more photos of the interior, as well as an aerial view of Sausalito's famous houseboat community.

Sliding glass doors in the dining area offer direct outdoor access while framing harbor views.

The back dock provides an idyllic setting for sunbathing and dining.

A curved window bathes the living room in natural light.

The loft-like office space on the upper level overlooks large windows wrapping around the top of the home.

In total, the houseboat features two bedrooms. Here, the master bedroom is illuminated by several windows along the sides.

Cobalt blue tiling add a playful burst of color in the bathroom.

Exposed beams and the all-white palette continues into the second bedroom. 

An outdoor terrace spans the width of the home, offering plenty of space to gather.

The home's vibrant facade sets it apart from its floating neighbors.

50 Issaquah Dock in Sausalito, California, is currently listed for $1,335,000 by Steve Sekhon of Compass.
