Boatshed Thames are pleased to offer this one bedroom houseboat with a residential mooring on Swan Island near Twickenham. This non-navigable static houseboat has been recently refurbished with the interior and exterior repainted. She was lifted from the water in October 2017, when the hull was reblacked and new anodes fitted. An unusually high ceiling helps create a sense of space that is usually lacking on houseboats, whilst not losing the cosy charm expected. The entire living area save bathroom is laid with a timber effect laminate over a heat shielding rubber and foil underlay. The modern kitchen has plenty of cupboard space at floor and head height. The counter continues along into a breakfast bar to seat two. There is an under counter electric cooker while the hob runs on calor gas, fuelled from a bottle housed on the roof. The bathroom features a Mira power shower in a large 3'x2' cubicle with waste pump concealed under the floor. A compact and sanitary chemical toilet has been fitted to comply with waste regulations. All on board plumbing was updated under five years ago. Hot water is supplied by an electric heater under the sink, while the shower has a built-in element. An onboard pump keeps the system pressurised with easy access to all plumbing. The lounge is very spacious and easily accommodates two small to medium sized sofas with room for other furniture as well. The vessel is currently arranged in a one bedroom layout but the dividing wall is non-structural and easily removed to create an open plan space. At present, it fits a large king size bed plus wardrobes and has proved flexible in terms of possible layouts. An Acorn multi-fuel stove provides most of the heating, with an additional electric radiator for immediate warmth when required. There is a ladder on the side of the boat providing access to the roof, which has plenty of seating and space to relax and enjoy the wonderful views of the river Thames and it's wildlife. Travel links are exceptional. The M3 is a five minute drive away, leading swiftly on to the M25; the A4 is easily reached even in rush hour; and Kingston and Richmond are both only five minutes by car. There are two local stations - Strawberry Hill and Twickenham. Strawberry Hill is two minutes walk away and Twickenham, ten. Both serve London Waterloo regularly. Buses run from outside to Teddington, Richmond, Fulwell, Hampton Court (for trains to Guildford via Surbiton), and Hammersmith. Buses from the high street also service Whitton, Hounslow, Staines, and Feltham amongst others. These boat details are subject to contract. The date of construction is believed to be correct, although this cannot be certified. Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
