Do you dream of living on the water, but aren’t quite ready to commit to learning all the ins and outs of boat life?
If you also happen to have £100,000 handy, you could be in luck.
A two-bed floating apartment is up for sale, described as an ‘amazing opportunity to be part of a new concept for Brighton Marina and beyond’.
The floating flats aren’t houseboats, as you can’t unmoor them and sail about the water.
But they do offer the peace and stunning views of a home on the waterfront.
The property is up for sale through Zoopla with an asking price of £100,000 – quite a bit cheaper than the average home in the Brighton area.

If your budget is a bit tighter, though, there are separate waterlodges available at a range of prices; the cheapest at £61,900 up to the most expensive at £146,000.
The different waterlodges have slightly different layouts and amounts of space to justify their different prices, but the main one on sale has two bedrooms, one bathroom, and one reception room.
Each waterlodge has its own roof terrace, too, with a spiral staircase to take you up there.

Design-wise, the homes are pretty snazzy, with floor-to-ceiling windows and sleek interiors.
In terms of location, the homes are obviously on the water, so that’s nice, but also sit close to plenty of on-land attractions.
At the marina there are plenty of restaurants, and a walk along the undercliff takes you to Rottingdean, East Sussex.

Bear in mind, before you call up Zoopla and organise your savings, that along with the cost of the actual home you’ll need to pay a berthing charge to keep the home at the marina.
This fee changes depending on the home, ranging from £463.19 per month up to £720 per month.
Plus, you get the peace and quiet of living on the water (Picture: Zoopla / SWNS)

It’s also worth noting that traditional mortgage lenders often won’t provide finance for houseboats or similar, so you could need quite a bit of cash upfront.
If you’re still keen, though, you can get in touch with Zoopla or Leaders Waterside through the listing.
