What's Hot: Plans Progress For a New Grocery Store at Friendship Heights Mall | Move-In Ready Townhomes at EYA's Northeast DC Neighborhoods
This Week's Find: 680 Square Feet on the Water
Weekly happy hours, Zumba classes, rooftop decks with views of DC’s monuments are features typically associated with high-end condos and rentals in DC. Yet those also come with a $189,000 two-bedroom that just hit the market in Southwest. The one catch is that the home floats.
Property #B11 at 600 Water Street is one of 86 houseboats that make up the Gangplank Marina.
The houseboat’s main living space.
In many ways, the home is just like any other unit on the market. There is a kitchen area that features updated appliances, hardwood floors and a breakfast bar that comfortably sits four. Just beyond this is a living space that’s large enough for the owner’s flat-screen TV which she’ll fondly remember gathering with other community members to watch football on. A large window against the back wall brings in natural light. The master bedroom, although smaller, has good-sized closet space, expanding the home’s storage and reducing the clutter. There is also a small outdoor seating area and the home comes with air conditioning, laundry and a parking space.

The Wharf’s $2 billion redevelopment means the houseboats will be moved, but each owner will get a boat slip at the new location.
And while there are not rooms dedicated to certain activities, the schedule is full for many residents: Zumba classes happen on Thursdays, a “Captain’s Coffee” is hosted on Sunday and Thursday nights are for happy hour.
