Home Seller's Comments

"If you are looking for an affordable, yet highly individual Waterside Home, then look no further….'Climb aboard the Ivey'. Traditionally, living so close to the water is enjoyed by few, as purchase prices of conventionally built bricks and mortar style properties in stunning locations, within touching distance of the water, often means big budget spending. Ivey provides a unique Waterside opportunity.

This superb House Boat has been thoughtfully designed and maintained, offering comfortable accommodation with all the normal refinements of regular living to include, a central heating system, cast iron wood burning stove, well fitted kitchen, WC and shower cubicle.

Ivey has 2 bedrooms (technically referred to as 'cabins') both incorporating practical storage space. The view is stunning, please book a viewing appointment and come and see for yourself."


Current Owner's Comments

- Being on the water is a magical and peaceful way to live, you are close to nature and acutely aware of the changing seasons. Bliss.

- The light that pours in from every aspect of the boat is lovely, especially the reflections from the water that bounce off the ceilings.

- The master cabin is triple aspect with a roof hatch enabling you to lie in bed and look at the stars.

- Ivey offers lots of storage including handmade oak shelving. Its an adaptable living environment and feels very spacious - we once had a party with 21 people onboard!

- The wharf offers a really nice community feel but also allows for an undisturbed and private lifestyle if that's your preference - having said that, people do love to visit.

- Ivey's current location is a wildlife hotspot. We regularly see a pair of swans, ducks, fish, egrets, shags, and a kingfisher who sits on the ropes.

- I once saw a seal pop his giant grey head up out of the water out of the window as I was doing the washing up!

- We love going for an evening row to the pub after work or a morning row to fetch the papers at the weekends.
