Have you dreamed of living in a boat-shaped house in Hollywood Hills? Okay, maybe that's a bit specific, but it sounds fun, right?

This eclectic abode is on the market in one of Los Angeles' most coveted neighborhoods and features dreamy Norwegian interiors that are an homage to the home's rich history.

The home, located at 7045 Woodrow Wilson Dr., was designed by iconic architect Harry Gesner and built by Norwegian shipbuilders.

"The design for the Boathouse was Harry Gesner's mid-century modern interpretation of an Indonesian Batak House, which he saw while serving in World War II," the home's current owners Matthew Russell and Erik Nye told Narcity. "Gesner was an environmentalist before his time believing that the land should not be changed to conform to a house, but that the house should sit delicately upon the landscape and commune with nature."

The artist duo spent the last 11 years working to restore the space as closely as possible back to its original architectural intent.

"We were overjoyed to have begun preservation of the Boathouse with most of its original details still intact," said Russell and Nye.

The space is as gorgeous as it is unique. Natural light floods the living areas, as floor-to-ceiling windows lead to a balcony with an expansive view of the natural canyon below.
