On the Market: A Three-Bedroom Houseboat in East Boston
This buoyant dwelling is docked at a marina in Eagle Hill.
84 Condor Street, East Boston
Size: 1,400 square feet
Properties along East Boston’s waterfront command upwards of $700 per square foot these days, but this three-bedroom home for sale in Eagle Hill happens to be listed at a steep discount. Perhaps that’s because it’s not on the waterfront—it’s literally in the water. The houseboat asks just $250,000, or $179 per square foot.
Not only is the floating home a relative bargain, but it’s roomy, too. The two-story abode stretches to 1,400 square feet, and features an open-concept living and dining area, plus a kitchen with a breakfast bar. One of the bedrooms boasts a sizable walk-in closet, not to mention a second-floor balcony. Below, a deck looks out to where the Chelsea River empties into the harbor, offering a front-row seat to the city’s marine industry. (Hello there, container ships, cranes, and the Tobin Bridge.)
Buyers interested in the buoyant dwelling have to check a few boxes. First, only cash offers will be accepted, and in order to see the boat, you’ll have you send over a proof of funds letter. The translation? Serious inquiries only.
