39 Issaquah Dock, Sausalito SOLD
2 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, Large Entertainment Room — SOLD
A Dramatic, Unforgettable Floating Home
We all have that one place we lived that we’ll always remember.
That home where it feels like you’re on a luxurious vacation when you arise each morning. Where it’s like an exclusive retreat when you return home each night. A place where all the modern high-end touches make each room feel intimate, warm and new.
You’ll always remember that incredible view, permanently etched into your consciousness. You’ll sit out on the deck sipping something cool and refreshing as you watch the sunset. Then you’ll look at each other and say, “Can you believe we’re really living here?”
For one lucky owner, this home will be that favorite once-in-a-lifetime place.
The gentle waves of Richardson Bay and the soft creaking of the docks. The calls of sea lions, herons and gulls. The scent of cool morning breezes. It’s a feeling you can only get here in Sausalito.
That’s why Sausalito floating home specialist Michele Affronte is thrilled to share this unique new listing.

As a long-time resident, Michele understands the warm and supportive culture of Sausalito’s houseboat community, and why so many people settle here. She’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have about this exciting lifestyle and this beautiful home.
Located in a premier deep water berth on the coveted “Garden Dock”, this home has three wonderful decks (yes. three decks — that’s not a typo) that offer views in all directions. With approximately 1,700 sq. ft. of living space, you’ll have two lovely bedrooms (and room to create a 3rd bedroom if you wish) plus a large entertainment room with a built-in office area, along with two and a half stunning baths.
The master suite includes what may be the grandest, most magnificent bath on any floating home, with its sweeping views of the Bay, not to mention heated floors and towel bars. You’ll peek out at a slice of San Francisco through versatile plantation shutters, but all around you will be the calm of the harbor.
This spectacular three-story floating home features an open floor plan complemented by soothing tones and extraordinary finishes. The gourmet kitchen offers stainless appliances and stunning Corian counters. A custom etched “Dolphin Door” leads to a deck just off the kitchen. (Most of the furniture shown in the slide show photos is included.) Just a few of the many sophisticated amenities are compressed bamboo floors, a gas fireplace, white leather living room furniture, a custom walnut “murphy dining table,” and views that go on forever!
Both boats in the photos are included. Jump in the double kayak after work and visit a neighbor, take the vintage motor boat (*) to Bar Bocce for a pizza, or just gaze at the stars with a glass of wine from whichever deck suits your mood.

This beautiful Floating Home is berthed in the heart of Sausalito’s famous houseboat community, just north of San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge in Marin County, California. This is the area where Otis Redding wrote the classic song, “Sittin’ on the Dock of the Bay” in 1967, making this one of the most prestigious houseboat addresses in the world.
65 years ago movie star Sterling Hayden and philosopher Alan Watts held their versions of the Paris salons of Gertrude Stein, Ernest Hemingway, Pablo Picasso and F. Scott Fitzgerald in this area. Although those large events — and the bohemian vessels where they were held — are now long gone, residents still entertain neighbors and host discussions on a smaller, more intimate scale.
Today the neighborhood is a fascinating mix of people, with residents ranging from artists to entrepreneurs and from pilots to interior designers.
A small store, a deli that’s been featured on TV restaurant shows, and a highly-rated casual restaurant are just a block or two away. A shopping center and regional transit hub for bus service are located several blocks away.
Just a block from the entrance to Issaquah Dock lies the Mill Valley-Sausalito Multi-Use Path. To the north your bike ride leads to the trails of Mt. Tamalpais. To the south you can ride across the Golden Gate Bridge to San Francisco.
A few blocks to the south are a supermarket, the post office, an art gallery supported by over 100 local artists, and a wide range of coffee shops, diners and restaurants including American, Chinese, Himalayan, Indian, Mexican, Middle Eastern and Pizza.
