If you want to live on the water — really, truly on the water — here are some great ideas for you.
Lisa Murdick, of Howard Hanna Real Estate Services, has a houseboat for sale and it sits at 8 Horseshoe Pond. The listing said it includes great sunsets and a new roof and electric lines, but it needs some repairs. It’s listed at $200,000. Keep in mind — you have to have a boat to get to it. It offers two bedrooms and about 1,000 square feet of living space plus 1,000 square feet of deck space. “These don’t come up for sale very often,” Murdick said.
She said there are 24 houseboats in Horseshoe Pond, but at one time there were 29 scattered around the peninsula. The boats are anchored into the pond bottom, and this area does have its own Presque Isle Houseboat Owners Association. While some of the units are pretty basic, others are a little more comfortable. “Some have air conditioning and fireplaces,” Murdick said.
