A woman has gone viral online after she spotted a traditional American home floating in the sea — leaving social media users baffled.

Sky, who posts online under the username @mads.plus.one, was sunbathing on the beach when she spotted the bizarre sight off the Florida coast, US. It is believed what she say was a houseboat, which is designed for the owners to live on.

These floating homes with living spaces and amenities. They are usually found on lakes or rivers, offering a unique on-water living experience.

This houseboat appeared to have been designed to look similar to a traditional American white picket fence property just like what you would see in the movies. But it appeared to have been floating in the sea instead of in more tranquil waters.

She said: “Are you ever just tanning? And then you see a houseboat? Not like a regular houseboat. Like a house floating in the water? No. Okay.”

TikTok users were left stunned by the houseboat as they took to the comments confused by the floating house. One user said: “it’s not like a regular houseboat, it’s a cool houseboat.”

Another quipped: “That’s not a regular houseboat, it’s a home boat.” A third commented: “We passed that on my buddies boat last Saturday I thought I was seeing things.”

Meanwhile, a fourth wrote: “On the ocean? I could see it on a lake or river but floating THAT in the ocean? Wow.” Others dubbed it “Florida activities.”

However, other users suggested that it may be a floating chapel, having gotten married in one themselves. A viewer wrote: “My husband and I got married on the floating chapel. It was beautiful.”

    Someone else penned: “Chapel. Went to my friend’s wedding on it. Super cool.”

    It is believed the video, which has gained more than 446,000 likes, is of the former chapel on the Bay. Weddings were previously held onboard but it was put up for sale in 2021 to become a floating home.

    When it hit the market, it was docked in Palmetto, Florida, and listed for $699,000 (about £551,000). It is still listed today on Special Finds, for a reduced price of $250,000 (£197k).

    The property listing said that the chapel was designed by naval architects Daniel J. Avoures and Associates but was given a $1.3m (£1.02m) renovation to convert it into a home.

    Nowadays, it boasts a spacious open-plan living area, a contemporary kitchen, and two bedrooms, but it has preserved many of its initial sacred architectural elements, including stained glass windows and a towering 30-foot steeple.

    The interior living space measures 1,050 square feet, with the total size of the home being 1,800 square feet.

    It is capable of moving using its two Cummins Diesel engines and comes complete with essentials such as air conditioning, and an eight-kilowatt generator supplies power to household appliances, including a fridge and TV.
