The sellers are moving out of the country, and reduced their asking price by $20,000—which means this floating home in Portland’s Hayden Island bay is open to a buyer with about 20% down and possibly less than $1000 mortgage payment. What’s unexpected about this one (besides the low price) is the traditional cottage look of the interiors. Outside, the dark wood shingles lend it the look of a beach house, only it’s even closer to the water. Besides the obvious plus of a yard in the form of the outdoor deck, it has radiant heat, surround sound, and another surprise: a master walk-in closet.
