Far from the rustic cottagecore décor you may expect from a houseboat, 7 Brimley Road South is bright and modern.

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

The main floor opens onto a private lakeside patio – a “truly unique experience,” you can walk out of your living room and into your watercraft of choice.

“You will not find another view like this,” the listing reads. “Immerse yourself into a world like no other.”

The home has three bedrooms and two bathrooms. Per the listing, it’s one of just two floathouses spacious enough to offer such a sleeping arrangement.

On the landside, the floathouse has a garden that’s been landscaped, hedged and fenced.
