29 Constitution Road, Charlestown
Price: $49,000
Size: 360 square feet
Bedrooms: 2
Baths: 2

A relatively affordable home is for sale in Charlestown. There’s just one catch—it’s floating.

With two bedrooms and two full bathrooms, this adorable houseboat in Constitution Marina asks $49,000. The 1986 Chris Craft 362 Catalina powerboat squeezes in a kitchen, a dining nook, a furnished living area, and a deck. Each bedroom boasts a closet and an ensuite bathroom, and the kitchen’s equipped with a cooktop, a stove, a sink, a microwave, a fridge, and a freezer.

The 360-square-foot abode maximizes space with built-in storage, and plenty of windows offer views of the harbor. The sale of the boat includes the option to take over the boat slip at Constitution Marina. Though the slip comes with one parking space, houseboat dwellers can head into the city on foot by strolling over the Charlestown Bridge to North Station—it’s about a 10-minute walk.

For information, contact Garrett Hogan, Garland Group, LLC, zillow.com.
