Photos: There's a floating home for sale at Granville Island and it's absolutely adorable

It may just cause you to drop your jaw.

Some people may say the most amazing home in Vancouver is a beachfront house in Kitsilano, others would argue for a downtown penthouse.

There are probably a few that would argue for this amazing home on the water. While its address is 9-1301 Johnston Street, it's not actually on any street. The floating home is part of Sea Village, the community of residences anchored at Granville Island.

It's one of only 14 homes in False Creek at the iconic tourist site in Vancouver.

Aside from an absolutely stunning location, the structure itself is beautiful. Filled with wood paneling and windows looking out over the seawater towards the city, it'd be an amazing home on land. A particular highlight for literature fans would be the two-storey bookcase with a ladder to reach volumes at the very top.

To be fair, it's not the cheapest home; it's listed at $1.88 million. That's just for the floating home, as there's no property ownership for those types of residences.
