Prepare to be impressed by the classy and elegant interiors of a seemingly humble houseboat

Looking for the perfect seaside getaway? Head to Liberty Dock in Sausalito, California, and enjoy a designer's dream. This two-story floating home is simply gorgeous from roof to deck. Adjacent to San Francisco, there is plenty to do nearby, but you may never want to venture outside once you see this beautiful boat.
Fully loaded with a gourmet kitchen, skylights, Italian tile and teak flooring, every inch of this home is detailed, purposeful and absolutely perfect. The home sits right on the water, and a rooftop deck offers a stunning view of the neighboring houseboats and sea lovers. Sheer curtains sway in the breeze as you take in a sitting area that could also double as a spare sleeping space. Skylights let light in from the roof, giving the home a vibrant, cheerful feel.

Real birch trunks provide a cool, shabby decoration and separate the rooms effectively. A fireplace keeps the home warm on chilly ocean evenings, and small touches such as a vintage trunk and wooden shelves add character to the home. Gleaming teak floors provide rustic contrast to the appealing decor and color palette, and the birch trunks are just really cool.
The living room offers a worn, comfortable leather couch and television along with plenty of space to relax and unwind.
The kitchen offers a cool wooden counter as well as a divider that keeps the room separated from the living area. Notice the standout details of this room, just as overhead shelving units that hold cookware and cookbooks, along with a shelf on top of the microwave for storage or knickknacks – great space-saving ideas.
Gorgeous Italian tile creates an intimate, cozy kitchen, and the room features everything a chef needs, including a range/stove, stainless steel sink, refrigerator and dishwasher, among with other gadgets and gizmos gourmets will enjoy.
There isn't much to say about the dining room except, wow! Fully enclosed in glass, the room provides a stunning view during dinner, and skylights above make it seem almost as if you're dining al fresco!
One bedroom is tucked into a charming alcove and includes a walk-in closet.
The second bedroom features a double bed and plenty of views of the ocean. In fact, you're level with the water.
Italian tile adds a contemporary look to the bathroom, and the basin sink creates a chic, modern feel. The stand-up shower and combination tub also has jets for a soothing bath.
The rooftop deck is the perfect place to end the day. Enjoy the sunrise, barbecue some dinner and sip a cocktail while watching the boats go by. You can see all the way to San Francisco!
