Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.

This is a rare opportunity to own a superb house boat in London. The Boat is well situated, looks great and is superbly fitted and furnished.

The decks provide great outdoor space overlooking a wooded park.

The lovely floating pontoon mooring is secured on a 30 year renewable lease, which will be surrendered to the buyer. This is a fully residential mooring and council tax is payable at band A.

There is public transport and shopping very nearby and street parking adjacent.

The River Thames is within easy walking distance and it is handy for both central London and Heathrow.

Priced realistically to ensure a quick sale, this is one to move fast on.
