Amazing opportunity to own a spacious houseboat on the beautiful River Orwell. This vessel has recently been surveyed and does need considerable investment. However, a motivated owner is inviting offers that will mean that once work has been completed, this could make a fantastic residence with no mooring costs in probably the best location currently available.
The barge has been converted to open plan style over two levels with additional decking area to the fore. A mecca for artists, naturists or anybody who just wants to get away from it all, the work required will enable the new owner to put their unique stamp on it. Once done the work may ensure that the vessel is insurable and could return her true market value
This houseboat is located in a designated 'Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty', with stunning river views. She is set amongst a row of houseboats on the tidal river Orwell in a hamlet 15 minutes from Ipswich and 1 hour to London by train.
