Property description

This unique house boat is on a permanent residential mooring in South Dock Marina, SE16. The marina has a community vibe with an air of tranquility & is ideally placed to travel to various parts of London with ease. You can reach Shoreditch in 20mins, Peckham in 18mins, Bond Street in 26mins & it's one stop to Canary Wharf using the TFL's water taxi service (Oyster card accepted), so it's ideal for finance professionals. The marina is within a free parking zone & provides facilities such as concierge service who take in mail and parcels; hyperoptic broadband; electricity; water & waste disposal.

The current owner has occupied Hippo of London for the past 3 years & transformed it into a social space which has the perfect balance between indoor & outdoor living. The houseboat oozes character and has been revamped into an exceptional home. The owner has a rather busy & hectic lifestyle & opted to convert a small room that was originally a makeshift bathroom into a walk-in wardrobe. The toilet & shower block is conveniently located on the same jetty as the houseboat & is only 10 seconds walk away. The owner rooted for this option as it eradicates the need to have a septic tank pumped out every week & any further maintenance.

It is important to note that this is a purchase of a special home rather than a boat & for that reason the engines have not been used during the current occupancy. So the engines would need to be inspected before attempting to turn them over.
