This houseboat in a picturesque location with two bedrooms, two bathrooms and wonderful open plan living area measuring an impressive 31' x 19'7 is available for purchase alongside the freehold mooring. There are features to this house boat including spiral staircase and wood burner.

A stunning 2 bedroom house boat in the picturesque location of Shoreham-By Sea has become available to purchase. The vessel we understand was built by Richard Dunstan Ltd. In Thorne as a 'fuel lighter' 1404 (U) and completed in 1964 and subsequently converted to a House Boat in 2005.

The accommodation is over 2 decks and comprises of a welcome area, office space and stunning 15' x 12'4 covered viewing deck on the top level offering a rare panoramic vista of the ever changing river towards the town, estuary and The South Downs. There is ample further outside seating/viewing area from the stern and bow, great for sitting and enjoying the views and sounds or alfresco dining as the sun sets.

There is a feature spiral staircase to the lower deck where the generous accommodation includes the most wonderful open plan living/dining and modern kitchen area measuring an impressive 31 x 19'7 with modern fittings, log burning stove, port hole windows and great entertaining space. There are 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms with each bedroom situated at either end of the boat.

We understand the boat has a steel hull and the approximate overall measurement is 77' x 21'. This freehold mooring includes a deck and walk way to the boat with timber storage units and water supply. There is an electricity supply for the heating through modern radiators and propane gas for the hot water supply.

This is a must view house boat rarely available and we advise early inspection.
