Any house on water probably is worth more than other lot locations, unless that lot is constantly wet. The number two value goes to the water view across the street; number three is lake front; four is a cul-de-sac; corner, and finally, an interior lot.

Zillow does not have a way to separate waterfront from non waterfront or view from no view at this point. The values for these features would be almost impossible to calculate from the numbers alone. There is a big difference between a house that is waterfront to a drainage pond to one that is waterfront to the international waterway. Zillow is only an estimate and not an appraisal. Any appraiser or buyer would likely add value for a waterfront location or view, but Zillow has no way to do that with the numbers alone.
