A rare opportunity to own a Humber Barge Houseboat in a tranquil residential boatyard in St Denys, Southampton.
The hull of the boat has recently been fully re-plated & the whole vessel has been lovingly refurbished throughout to create a stunning open plan 3/4 bedroom home.
On the upper deck a steel frame is in situ to take a canopy so you can enjoy the deck rain or shine. The deck gives access to the Wheelhouse, with double doors and large windows; this light & airy space is large enough to be used as a dining room or enjoyed as a lounge with stunning views of the river and all of the wildlife that visit it.
Downstairs, an open plan lounge and kitchen really shows off the houseboats character, flooded with natural light from numerous skylights & the original portholes. A log burner, which also heats the radiators throughout the barge, offers a lovely centerpiece to the lounge, and the solid wood handmade kitchen, slate worktops and Belfast sink gives this boat a warm cottage feel, offering a calm and cosy place to relax.
Beyond the lounge is a good sized single bedroom with porthole and a mezzanine bedroom above accessed via a ladder. It looks down onto the lounge, this is great fun for kids! At the Bow you find the master bedroom, a very good sized room with two skylights, two portholes and two small stained glass windows offering a calm and cosy space to unwind. Attached to the master bedroom is a small utility room offering space for a washing machine, a tumble dryer and any other cleaning necessities.
At the stern end of the vessel is a fourth room which is currently used as a storage/workshop area. However this room does have provision for a radiator and could potentially easily be made into a single bedroom/office/art room etc. There are two skylights in this room which can be opened and lead to the main deck area by the main entrance.
The large bathroom has a toilet, glass wash basin, a walk in shower & roll top bath.
