Small Yet Stylish Houseboat

This sleek, contemporary houseboat by architect Jim Olsen weighs in at only 1,000 square feet. But with wraparound windows, epic skyline views, luxury amenities and of course waterfront access, this tiny gem packs a serious design punch.

Living Room

The lower level hosts an open floor plan and floor-to-ceiling windows. Sliding doors lead to the deck, just fingertips away from the glittering water.

Kitchen

The kitchen may be petite, but thoughtful design elements like a wraparound countertop and bar seating make the most of every inch. Colorful wall art adds a splash of color to the neutral space.

Dining Room

With easy access to the kitchen, this dining area means hosts never have to leave the party and guests get to drink in the city view.

Dining Room View

Slide back glass doors and serve up cocktails on the deck. The houseboat's clean lines, anchored by custom furnishings, never compete with its spectacular location.

Bedroom

Unique, wraparound windows make it easy to fall asleep under the stars in this bedroom, one of three. And double pane/storm windows give you peace of mind should a squall blow up.

Bathroom

Walls melt away when you're surrounded by views like these. Add in the marble flooring and high-end hardware and fixtures and there's no doubt you will feel thoroughly pampered.

Home Office

Waiting for the big idea to strike? There's plenty to inspire in this airy, bright work space. Everything you need is here: comfortable seating, generous (yet subtle) storage, and you can't beat the view from that office window.
