A stunning two bedroom Dutch barge, currently moored on the south side of the river on the recently opened Plantation Wharf Pier. Originally built by Versluis in Holland circa 1924, this wonderful river home has been completely refurbished by the current owner to include new stairs and skylights, new carpets, complete rewiring and new wood flooring throughout with underfloor heating.
Situated in a secure, gated pier that includes a River Bus departure point, the barge benefits from sensational views up and down the river. On entering the wheelhouse the original wooden helm and instrumentation is still in place, whilst new plantation shutters assure privacy. There is a second bedroom / study at the stern, and stairs lead down down to the main cabin towards the bow. Here a beautifully finished bathroom features a rolltop Victorian claw & ball bath, a sumptuous double bedroom with large walk in wardrobe/storage is at the bow, and in between is a fabulous saloon with free standing wood burning stove, wood floors and original brass portholes. The kitchen is well equipped, with a dishwasher, electric oven & hob, white high gloss units and wood block worktop. Externally there is a substantial foredeck and a sheltered rear deck, ideal for summer living.
Please note that the mooring is not included in the sale but there is a residential mooring agreement in place with the mooring owner.
Houseboat 'Anny' is moored on Plantation Wharf Pier. Battersea Square is nearby and various buses provide access to Chelsea, Clapham Junction, Victoria and the West End. There is a plethora of highly popular local shops and restaurants, and the open spaces and leisure facilities of Battersea Park are approximately a mile away.
