Contemporary Boat House on the Columbia

marinefr-1Contemporary Boat House on the Columbia

This fabulous contemporary boat house on the Columbia off of Marine Way was so much fun to market. It is designed by an architect and built by an engineer with lots of love for the water. You will enjoy  the spectacular views of sunsets and mountains from the apartment of the contemporary boat house. Every detail was considered, from Portuguese cork floors, to gorgeous wood decking and steps, to special paint and finishes for the decking and siding. The interior of the apartment is small but fine. It has  furnishings purchased to fit the space including a wall bed, designer table and hand loomed rugs in water shade of blue. Everything is built in to this house. The finishes are all light and  bright. A Euro-deck was installed on the East side so that the owner can enjoy the sunrise and views of the mountains from the wall bed.

Huge deck and heated boat house

The deck is the perfect entertaining space, and is almost 800 square feet! You feel like you are floating above the river, and have unobstructed views to the East and the West. The boat garage is specially designed to house classic boats. It is heated and insulated, has a spacious work bench and a bathroom, storage closets and the washer dryer. This home is an easy commute to town from Marine Drive. The Portland sail boat races happen just off the dock to this  house.  This  house makes a perfect weekender for someone who loves the river and boating.


This house recently sold after just 90 days on the market. The new owner is very excited to begin her life on the river. She owns a classic boat and now a nice place to store it and use it.
