A far cry from the rustic, cottage-style decor you’d expect from a houseboat, 7 Brimley Road South is bright and modern.

On the ground floor, you will find a gourmet kitchen, a dining room and a living room. Nine-foot ceilings and an open concept layout make the space airy and inviting.

The ground floor opens to a private lakeside patio – a ‘truly unique experience’ you can step out of your living room and into your watercraft of choice.

“You won’t find another sight like this,” the listing reads. “Dive into a world like no other.”

The house has three bedrooms and two bathrooms. According to the listing, it is one of only two floats spacious enough to offer such sleeping accommodation.
