Beautiful modern three bedroom two storey houseboat
This idyllic houseboat sits on the non tidal River Thames in a beautiful semi rural setting. She has been fully modernised within the last three years and is centrally heated and double glazed throughout. The outlook on the river is completely unspoilt. She also has a launch called Ratty that has an outboard motor. Close to all amenities such as schools, doctors, supermarkets, butchers, fishmongers in the small town of Shepperton just one mile away. Heathrow is ten minutes by car and a local train station takes you directly into Waterloo, so is commutable.There are some lovely riverside restaurants, a sailing club and small towns within a very short distances. The Houseboat is freehold, but there is a rental of the residential mooring of £975 per month. Council tax (Band A) and electricity are not included. This monthly rental includes gated secure parking for four cars , access to the lovely apple orchard next to the boat, a small plot of land running alongside the boat where plants and shrubs can be featured and access to the field where there is an allotment for enthusistic participants, if they so wish. This is a small close knit friendly community of just nine boats and residents who during Covid, were ready to help each other in times of need. The houseboat is 64ft long. Cycling along the towpaths is lovely and you can cycle all the way to Hampton Court or onwards to Richmond. Paddle boarding, plus swimming in the Thames close to the Houseboat can be great fun.
