Hermitage Community Moorings, Wapping E1W

Sold STC £750,000

Property Description

Full description

Built in 1913 as a twin mast sailing Klipper, to operate along the Friesian canals of Northern Holland, this historic Dutch barge is now converted to a wonderful houseboat situated on The City's only permanent mooring within sight of Tower Bridge. Living on Dankbaarheid at Hermitage Moorings is a unique opportunity to experience life on the Thames. The view is spectacular and changes every day with the tides and with the seasons.

The conversion comprises over 1,701 sq. ft. / 158 sq. m. of living space over two decks and enjoys a clean, modern feel throughout. The upper deck sitting room could serve a multitude of uses, while the 31 ft. by 18 ft. (9.6 m. by 5.5 m.) saloon has oak timber flooring, a multi fuel burning stove and central heating throughout. Both of the 2 bedrooms benefit from fitted wardrobes and plenty of storage space. A study/3rd bedroom, chic integrated kitchen and contemporary bathroom with underfloor heating complete the accommodation. A fully functional engine, working anchor, VHS radio and navigation lights allow the vessel to be taken out on trips. In addition there is a domestic battery bank and Victron inverter/charger.

Hermitage Community Moorings provides berths for 19 historic vessels and is the first development of its kind on the Thames for more than a generation. Designed and built by a small, dedicated group of people to create a close-knit community committed to boat use and the preservation of historic vessels. Part of its ambition is to ensure traditional river craft (e.g. sailing barges, motor barges etc.) remain part of the Wapping landscape for future generations - and to create a local landmark that promotes Wapping's historic links with the river.

The mooring is a co-op, owned by its members and relies totally on the input of members for its efficient running and general vitality.
Last surveyed in 2016. Current Mooring Service charge: £5556 per annum
