Broker's Comments

This lovely 4 bedroom houseboat comes with a mooring, south-facing sun deck and private jetty which can be used for mooring up a small sailing dinghy, tender, rowing boat etc and would be ideally suited for a family or couple looking to live an alternative lifestyle on board a houseboat.

Whilst the houseboat could be moved by tug to an alternative location, in her current mooring she enjoys fantastic panoramic views over the river frequented by many sailing boats, and is in a wildlife conservation area.

The layout of this houseboat is essentially split into two areas, the top deck and the lower deck. The entrance to the boat is via the top deck which leads through to the open plan kitchen, lounge, dining room and French doors leading out to a large, south-facing sun deck.

The lower deck is accessed via stairs at both ends of the houseboat and this is where you will find the bedrooms, bathrooms, ensuites, storage rooms and laundry room.
