Browse houseboats for sale in Countryside, VA. Many people dream of living on the water, and that's exactly what houseboats offer. A houseboat is a home that floats on water. They come in two forms: cruising (with an engine or sails) and non-cruising (permanently moored or anchored). The most common form of a houseboat is the non-cruising one, which comes with living quarters, kitchen, bathroom, and often storage space for supplies. There are many different types of houseboats, from simple, small homes on top of rafts to multi-million dollar custom floating homes. In many parts of the world, houseboats have been around for centuries - in other areas, they're newer to the scene but quickly gaining popularity as an alternative lifestyle choice.
For many people, the idea of living on a houseboat is romantic and appealing. The concept can seem like an idyllic way to escape from everyday life. But before you pack up your things and head out onto the water, let's look at the advantages of living on a houseboat.
There are many reasons why people love houseboats, including the lack of mortgage payments (if you buy outright) and property taxes, the cool and fun lifestyle, awesome views, relaxing and simplified life, and surrounding wildlife - plus they can be very environmentally friendly. Their use of solar power can help reduce your carbon footprint and most houseboat communities rely on rainwater catchment systems for water. Houseboats are seen as homes for those who want to escape from land, live in a relatively cheaper home, but still have all the comforts of living in the city.
