Broker's Comments

Boatshed London are delighted to offer this Thames Lighter Houseboat which is being sold with incredibly rare 60ft freehold mooring near Kew Bridge, West London.

The main houseboat is currently converted into two flats that have spectacular views out across this picturesque stretch of the Thames. There are also two narrowboats included with the sale that are currently rented out. There is massive potential here to replace the boat with a custom built luxury houseboat

With stunning views of the Thames and Kew Bridge, it is a very desirable area, close to the historic riverside pubs and restaurants on Strand on the Green where there are a selection of delightful river pubs and restaurants.

The moorings are situated 300m from Kew Bridge and also includes a parking space. Kew Bridge rail station is 5 mins walk from the boats and gives direct access to Waterloo as well as being close to the M4.

The boat is arranged into two flats with 537 sq ft on the lower deck and 424 sq ft on the upper deck. Add the patio and outer deck and there is over 1,000 sq ft on offer here. The barge was surveyed in 2005 and it was fully replated at the time.
