Occasionally a property comes along that takes "unique" to another level and this huge barge conversion in Central London happens to be one such offering.

Firstly, with a whopping (approx) 5200 Sq Ft we believe it to be the single largest, private converted residential barge conversion in London and what a conversion!

Located in the heart of St Katherine?s Dock Marina, Wapping it's just a stone's throw from the City of London. The owner has cleverly added a feature room at one end of the barge which is used as a home office and is positioned in such a way, it enjoys the scenery of the local buildings and the waterscape, capped off by the beauty of Tower Bridge and really soaks up the Dickensian atmosphere of the place.

Be under no illusion, this is not a weekend retreat or London pad, this is a fully functioning permanent home that will suit a huge array of lifestyle choices including families.

There are five double bedrooms and four bathrooms on offer on the lower deck all sitting at the water line, boasting the most amazing views of the marina and provide a constantly changing picture as you watch the boats drift in and out, people watch as they wander around the quayside. Climb the stairwell to the upper deck via a cosy family sitting area with its oversized central wood burner that throws out a colossal amount of heat which creeps up to the floor above with its vast open plan space that lends itself to very social living. Here you'll find a very well appointed kitchen, dining area and more living space that's all flanked by the most enormous window looking out in the marina, you really are spoilt for natural light here. In addition, there is a guest shower room with WC on this level plus a large storage cupboard along with the home office.

At the other end of the barge is a lovely winter garden. This spacious room houses, amongst other things, a trampoline. Its got entirely retractable walls and ceilings which really make it a useable space throughout the year. Beyond this is a further decked area for those summer evenings when it's actually possible to sit and enjoy a glass of whatever takes your fancy whilst you watch the sun go down.

Put aside any pre-conceived ideas you may have about life aboard, this is as good as it gets. They say living by water is good for the soul, we now know why. We understand that there is no stamp duty payable on this sale but would advise any would-be buyer to seek independent advice prior to offering. For more information regarding the lease mooring, please speak to Simon Stone (partner).
