Many of us grew up reading the books of Shel Silverstein, including Falling Up, Where the Sidewalk Ends, and A Light in the Attic. If you’re really feeling nostalgic, you can now purchase his houseboat, which is up for sale in Sausalito, California.
Silverstein lived in this 1,200-square-foot balloon barge houseboat from the late 1960s to the early 1970s, and owned the property until his death in 1999. The home dates back to World War II, and is as eccentric as many of the author’s famous stories. It has stained-glass windows and shiplap paneling, and newer industrial features like a metal staircase, white cabinetry, and gleaming concrete floors and kitchen countertops.
