    Could it be a houseboat?

    That's unlikely as the writer used the word 'house'.

    Something like by the sea would work better for me unless the house is on stilts.

    I'd still like to hear from Untaught, who thanked and liked my question but did not answer it.

    Re: I saw an awesoome house....the sea

    On Facebook, was it a question, formed as you have given it in post #1? If not, which preposition did the FB post use?
