Your average house in Richmond goes for well over a million dollars these days. So when we see a listing clocking in at just under $600,000 ā€“ it gets our attention.

The home is brand new. It has large windows to let in maximum light, a cozy fireplace, and even a built-in storage locker you can put your bikes in.

So, why is it almost half the price of a usual home?

It floats!

The home has two bedrooms, a flex space on the top floor, and two bathrooms.Ā There are two massive rooftop deck areas on either side of the house.

Inside, there are hardwood floors, brand new fixtures, and appliances, and it’s extremely spacious thanks to an open plan and a large foyer. The bedrooms are on the lower level so you can sleep close to the sounds of the water.
