Known as the floating seahorse, the first fleet of the floating ‘Seahorse’ will cost $2.8 million. The developer, Kleindienst Group, has already sold over 60 Seahorses. The master bedroom is on the lower floor, below the surface of the water, kind of like a massive fish tank. Residents can watch the sea life swim by from bed. Or while taking a bath!
