Most would agree that an authentic World War II landing craft converted into an attractive tiny house floating on the water next to a dock in a marina would be considered one of the most unique San Francisco Bay Area homes in the city’s real estate history.

As reported recently in the San Francisco Bee, this historic floating residence has hit the market for a cool $730,000. The practical one-bedroom, one-bathroom residence, 4 Main Dock in Sausalito, California, is a “dreamy, charming boho home,” according to the property listing.

Sausalito is situated in Marin County across from San Francisco’s Golden Gate strait. The cozy 568-square-foot space has an upgraded storybook exterior with a rich wood interior that “oozes with charm,” the listing states.

The house is moored to a pier while the property’s attached outdoor deck provides wonderful waterfront views.

“Dash off on your kayak and enjoy the day or sip wine on the magical deck. Original stained glass windows enhance the boho mood,” the listing suggests. “The landing craft was used in World War ll to drop soldiers off onto the beach in Normandy,” listing agent Michele Affronte of Engel & Völkers Sausalito told The Sacramento Bee. “It was put on a concrete barge in the late ‘79s (or) early ‘80s” before it was remodeled. Today, the inside space allows for a kitchen, outfitted in vintage-style appliances, a living room and a bonus area in the back.

The property description says the floating property would make a good pied-à-terre, rental, home office or art studio. The one-of-a-kind home’s price was dropped by $20,000 in July from the original listing earlier this year.
