2 bedroom house boat for saleCadogan Pier, Chelsea, SW3
Sold STC £399,000
A beautiful, two bedroom Dutch barge, new-built in 1985 to breathtakingly exacting standards. The accommodation comprises a wonderfully large and light-drenched wheel house which enjoys 360 degree views of the river and Battersea Bridge, a sumptuous kitchen diner, two double bedrooms and a very well appointed bathroom. All electrical and marine systems are of the highest standard and are laid out in a clean and organised engine room to the rear of the boat. She is a cruising boat able to navigate the Channel, making the waterways of France and the Continent potential cruising grounds along with the rivers and canals in the UK. So far, so fair enough but where my purple prose may start to fail me is as I attempt to do justice to the gorgeous cabinet building and marquetry that is evident throughout the boat. Fanned inlay work, suggesting an Art Deco aesthetic but in a very contemporary style, is to be found throughout the saloon which, in addition to making a sympathetic style statement, is also executed to an astonishingly high standard. The overall effect is of old world quality with 21st century functionality, the best of all possible worlds. The beautifully-laid teak floor in the wheelhouse is made from wood taken from the deck of the Cutty Sark, giving genuine historical provenance to this already compelling pied a terre. Moored on the prestigious Cadogan Pier, where she is offered with a one year leisure licence, lies close to the Kings Road and all the amenities in Chelsea and yet paradoxically enjoys very quiet and calm surroundings. This is a genuinely outstanding and unique boat and viewings are highly recommended.
