Walk inside a bright houseboat: The living room exudes a super inviting feeling

Docked in Seattle, this beautiful floating home is big on charm. With plenty of wood accents, including flooring and beams, the home exudes a welcoming feeling. Built in 1986, this home listing for the boat — which has since found a new owner — details all of the reasons why it's such a fabulous find.
With one bedroom, a bathroom and a kitchen, the Pintxos houseboat has everything you need for a lovely stay aboard. The curved, shiplap ceiling gives the boat even more character, and built-in, custom features including shelves, a dining room table and a fully loaded kitchen make the space even more appealing. Step on to this adorable houseboat, and enjoy the sunshine and salty sea air.

The classic 9-foot ceilings give way to a sunny, bright kitchen and living room as you walk inside the boat. The living room features a built-in sofa, coffee table and end tables. You'll also notice a desk opposite the sofa, as well as plenty of built-in shelves for books and home decor. All of the built-ins make this boat even more special. There's also a wood stove for those chilly ocean nights!
The galley kitchen comes complete with everything you need to prepare meals, snacks and drinks, including a sink, stove and oven, refrigerator, microwave, wooden countertops with plenty of space and storage options for food and cookware.
Coffee mug hooks above the sink create even more room, and built-in overhead shelves house books and add charm to the space.
Opposite the kitchen is a cozy but spacious built-in booth for dining. With comfortable cushions and a window to let in lots of light, the table may prove to be your favorite spot in the house. Shelves hold decorative items, and the sunny window is a happy place for plants.
As you head to the back of the boat, you'll see the master bedroom, which houses a comfy, queen-size bed.
As with the rest of the boat, there's plenty of space in the bedroom, including storage underneath the bed.
The boat's bathroom offers a full-size, stand-up shower, toilet and sink.
The space may be small, but it provides everything you need -- and does it with style. A mirror hangs on the wall, overhead shelves keep towels within reach, and an oversized window lets in just the right amount of sunlight.
