Step inside this incredible luxury houseboat – yours for just £1.5 million

This waterside residence is moored in London's Chelsea, offers 2,000 square feet of gorgeousness and includes two double bedrooms and three bathrooms. What's not to love?

Househunting? Fancy all-round river views? Then why not push the boat out and go for something a little different?

This 30-metre Dutch barge has just gone on the market with agents River Homes. Orginally converted in the 1970s it was extensively refurbished in 2012 with a complete refit and new hull.

Fancy cooking up a little something in the galley? It’s plain sailing in the swish 50ft open-plan fitted kitchen and entertaining space, gleaming with chrome and stainless-steel appliances.

There’s plenty of space for you and your shipmates in the two bedrooms – and if two just isn’t enough, the addition of a partition wall can provide a third rather splendid en-suite bedroom.

Filling up the rest of the jaw-dropping, light-filled 2,000 square feet of space are three shipshape bathrooms and a well appointed home office, plus a state-of-the-art wireless sound and lighting system for effortelss entertaining.

‘Luxurious houseboats are rare,’ says Nigel Day from River Homes. ‘Luxurious houseboats of this size and quality in Chelsea are even rarer. This floating home is more like a high-end apartment designed throughout to offer the owner very comfortable, peaceful living in the heart of the city.’

The palatial pad is moored permanently at Cheyne Walk in the prime location of London’s Chelsea and, naturally, comes with some rather splendid river views. Anchors aweigh and it could be yours – all you have to do is put your hands on that £1.5 million, plus the £16,000 a year mooring and maintenance charges…
