Property Description

A Humber Keel Barge, built in the UK with residential side-on mooring, set in the beautiful village of Gweek, with views of the famous Helford Creek. This floating home is converted from a freight barge, fitted out by her previous owners. The current owner lived aboard full-time for five years at Hampton Court in London, before sailing her down to Cornwall for a quieter life.

There is a bright, open-plan upper wheelhouse saloon that opens out, port and starboard, onto the extensive outside deck. The lower cabin houses the bulk of the accommodation which includes three bedrooms with the master benefiting from an en-suite bathroom. When entering the lower cabin, you arrive in the spacious lounge / dining area complete with wood burning stove! The kitchen has been fitted in a modern style and the room is well lit by numerous opening portholes and skylights. It is equipped with oil-fired central heating, log burner, mains water and pump-out facilities for live-aboard or holiday-let use. The barge has a homely feel, with wooden floors throughout the living area, TV, WiFi and the main bathroom even comes with a generous sized bath! We are advised that houseboat purchases are exempt from Tax.

Structural Survey Report available.
