Property Description

Full description

A unique, 25 metre long, two bedroom Dutch barge situated centrally on Bristol's ever-popular Harbourside. The boat, first built in Holland in 1926 and in full working order, now also provides contemporary accommodation, offering the owner two bedrooms, one with en-suite bathroom, a separate shower room, living room, kitchen and outdoor entertaining space as well as ample storage.

The current mooring, in very close proximity to Bristol City Centre, can be transferred to the new owner, subject to the Harbour Master's approval. Further detail available on request.
This is an ideal purchase for someone looking for good value and unique accommodation at the heart of a very desirable part of Bristol, within walking distance of several major employers and popular restaurants, galleries, café's and shops.
The current owner has conducted significant renovation of the boat in recent years including extensive work to the steel hull and some interior improvements while maintaining traditional character.

Local Area
The boat's current mooring is on Hannover Quay on Bristol's Harbourside. The nearby pedestrianised streets are lined by popular shops, cafes and restaurants such as Spitfire, Friska, Spoke and Stringer. The area thrives from being so close to several areas of employment along with daytime and evening venues of Bristol City Centre and Harbourside. The nearby Lloyds Bank and Hargreaves Lansdown are two of Bristol's biggest employers, whilst the Arnolfini, Watershed and Bristol Hippodrome, some of Bristol's best attractions, are within five minutes' walk. Bristol Temple Meads train station is also within walking distance through Bristol City Centre. For those looking for green space, the popular Queens Square is just a short walk away, as is the more expansive Brandon Hill Park.

Our Seller Says…
"Having the boat has been a life enhancing experience and we are very sad to be saying goodbye to our base on the harbour only because we now need more space. We love the vibrant yet peaceful lifestyle available all around the harbour and the ever-changing scenery and light which you only get afloat."
