FREE BERTHING! 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. This riverside home has been superbly converted from a steel Thames lighter and is divided between two floors. 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. We think this Houseboat offers ideal accommodation for someone who is looking to live near to the water and nature in comfort and style. Alternatively she could make an ideal weekend cottage or investment opportunity as a holiday let.
