= marks the location of this home
My houseboat is located on the East side of Lake Union within easy walking distance to buses or to downtown. The heart of the shopping district is 2 miles. It is also within 2 miles of the University of Washington. Within 3 blocks there are fabulous restaurants, coffee shops, and other stores. Because it is located between the University of Washington and downtown it is a very hip young professional neighborhood. The movie "Sleepless in Seattle" with Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan greatly increased Seattle's houseboats popularity.
