Roydon London UK|
Traditional Dutch barge which has been lovingly converted into a family home. One main double bedroom and one child's bunk room in the bow of the boat (bed could be converted to accommodate adult bunk room) with bespoke hatch. Spacious Kitchen, bathroom, bedroom and living room space - see photos.
The boat is fully converted to be a very comfortable cruising home. With 300 Watt solar to power fridge and all electrics. Unusually for a boat, it has a lot of storage: 6 large Cupboards in the main space (which means that items can be shut away) and there is plenty of shelving for books and objects. There is a large storage area at the back of the boat (see floor plan) and a big laundry/clothing cupboard in the bathroom above the water tank. Gas cooker and heating system, the water gets very hot which is a joy for boat living! The roof terrace pictured means you have a peaceful place to relax, read, BQQ... away from the towpath. Full hull survey July 2018, water blast, blacking and a top coating of entire boat July 2018, and engine service July 2018. In amazing condition. All surveys (2015 full survey / 2018 Hull survey) and paperwork available immediately for interested parties.
