Six incredible houseboats for sale
Penelope, a boat on the Thames
Our first find is this attractive and stylish boat in Wandsworth. If space is what you’re after, then you’ll be glad to know the living area makes a great entertaining space for parties and get-togethers and if this isn’t enough, the dining table can be extended to generously seat 14 people.
The boat is around 29 metres long and enjoys over 2,400 square feet of internal living space – fully kitted out with all manner of modern amenities.
A newly built boat at Windsor Riverside
This new two-bedroom houseboat is located at The Moorings at Windsor Riverside, which offers the best of riverside living due to the lovely gardens, shading willows and the magic of the river at dusk and early dawn. The boat has large bi-folding doors that open out onto the external deck area.
Finished externally in Scandinavian log cladding, it really is a rather marvelous looking quirky property and the entertainment deck alone really caught our eye, perfect for having friends over to enjoy the river views.
A 1930's boat conversion in Wapping
Next up is a truly spectacular 1930’s steel barge that has been converted into a contemporary houseboat. The refurbishment includes a bright reception on the upper deck with wonderful dock views the you can enjoy.
The lower deck boasts another reception area as well as a jet-ski platform and five (yes, five!) large double bedrooms with either shared or direct en-suite facilities.
An amazing newly built vessel in Chelsea
You can enjoy the peace and tranquility of the Thames from this brand new houseboat. Situated next to Cheyne Walk in Chelsea, this property contains a wonderful entertaining space with two large en-suite bedrooms, a dining area and drawing room.
It could be a fantastic place to entertain guests thanks to the ground floor layout which features an open-plan kitchen, dining room and drawing room – along with several handy utilities like a cloak room, utility room and even a plant room.
A beautiful Fulham houseboat for the nature lovers out there
This two-bedroom Dutch barge is called ‘Anny’ and it’s kitted out with all manner of modern conveniences from underfloor heating to a wood-burning stove to keep you cosy and warm during the Winter months.
It’s a large vehicle that boasts two bedrooms, a bathroom, a kitchen/diner as well as several other utility style rooms across the vessel, but what really sold it to us was the beautiful decor the current owners have provided – using foliage and plants to bring more colour and life into the property.
A fantastically quirky houseboat with lots of character
This three-bedroom boat is called ‘Dunnolly’ and she’s a converted 1940’s ‘Thames Lighter’ that was originally used to move cargo between London and Kent.
We love how much attention and care has gone into retaining as much of the boat’s original character as possible, while the current owners have obviously also put their own quirky spin on the eye-catching decor.
