FREE BERTHING! Amazing opportunity to own a spacious houseboat on the beautiful River Orwell. This vessel has recently been surveyed and does need considerable investment. However, a motivated owner is inviting offers that will mean that once work has been completed, this could make a fantastic residence with no mooring costs in probably the best location currently available. The barge has been converted to open plan style over two levels with additional decking area to the fore. A mecca for artists, naturists or anybody who just wants to get away from it all, the work required will enable the new owner to put their unique stamp on it. Once done the work may ensure that the vessel is insurable and could return her true market value This houseboat is located in a designated 'Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty', with stunning river views. She is set amongst a row of houseboats on the tidal river Orwell in a hamlet 15 minutes from Ipswich and 1 hour to London by train. There are no mooring fees for this houseboat and she has Local Authority planning permission. Her location is a haven to sailors, artists and visitors and footsteps away from National Trust heath and woodlands with stunning river walks. Living in the peace and tranquillity in this location you can view the seasonal coming and goings of the river, birds and wildlife on your doorstep and it's also only a short walk to a famous waterside pub and restaurant. She has a well appointed large open plan living with log burner, kitchen dining area and cloakroom on the top deck, with a separate sundeck and boat mooring to her stern. Below, in the stylishly fitted lower deck, she has been converted to offer 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms with one en-suite, as well as a utility room, workshop and office. She has oil fired central heating throughout. Water, electricity and telephone services are connected. Council tax is paid at Band 'A' rate and is currently c£900 pa. These boat details are subject to contract. Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
