Full description

Unmissable opportunity to be a part of Liverpools thriving waterfront community. We are delighted to welcome to the market 'Bacchante'. This wonderful 'Boston Widebeam' House Boat is 60 feet in length and 10 feet wide providing a highly desirable 'alternative' abode. Bacchante comes with all of the comforts of home, but with the added benefit of waking up each morning next to the Royal Albert Dock in Liverpool’s historic docklands.

The boat comprises of lounge, fitted and integrated kitchen, bathroom and double bedroom with fitted wardrobes. Access is via the bow with alternate access via bedroom to the stern.

Everything has been done to ensure that the standard of living and facilities aboard are as close to 'every day' home comforts as possible. This coupled with features such as reclaimed pitch pine flooring, cast iron radiators and roll-top bath give the living quarters a quality feel and charm.

Bacchante was built to specifications and has had one owner from new, a university lecturer. Previously moored in West London on the Paddington Branch of the Grand Union Canal, Bacchante is now moored at Salthouse Dock opposite the world famous Royal Albert Dock. This central, yet deceptively calm location provides easy access to an abundance of fantastic amenities within just a few minutes easy walking distance (including TATE North, Liverpool museum, Echo Arena, LiverpoolOne shopping centre and the city’s main bus and coach terminus). We would strongly recommend the discerning buyer to view this charming abode.
