Take a tour of this fabulous converted former boathouse

With an enviable waterside location The Old Boathouse is now a dream bolthole to call home

Thought to date back to the late Victorian era, this stunning property was a former boathouse – hence the name The Old Boathouse. Once a simple shed-like building, sat alongside the water, used to store boats this property has been totally transformed.

During the 1960s it was converted to form the unique home you see today.

Following on through from the living room sits an effortlessly cool dining area. Here we see elements of exposed brickwork, offset with bright white walls – just enough to add a touch of industrial-style chic to the space.

From this open-plan living area a stylish spiral staircase leads up to the first floor.

Also n the ground floor there’s contemporary galley style kitchen. Sleek white fitted furniture is mixed with rich wooden worktops and terracotta coloured mosaic tiles, to add interest. The tiles perfectly compliment the areas of exposed brick.
