Barge Glevum is a unique, stunningly restored, wide beamed house boat, originally a converted grain barge, now an excellent alternative to a city centre apartment boasting all modern facilities. This large and historic barge has been renovated in recent years and benefits from a full out of water survey in 2023, converted in the traditional style, incorporating fine craftsmanship and carpentry throughout. It has a wonderful situation, permanently moored on the Welsh Back and offering exceptional water views of the surrounding floating harbour. The entrance level has an outside area, suitable for potted plants, storage etc, which in turn leads to a spacious and light kitchen/dining room. Fitted out with a range of bespoke wooden units, incorporating space for fridges and freezers and includes an integrated oven, hob and wine fridge. There is ample space for a table and chairs as well as further storage. Stairs lead down to an exceptionally voluminous living space in the main section of the barge with a cosy wood burning stove at one end. Being a wide beam barge, it offers good width and head room, and portholes line this space offering lovely water views. The principle suite is located to the bow of the boat and incorporates a recently fitted contemporary shower room. The second double bedroom is to the stern with an interconnecting bedroom / home office and adjacent family bathroom which also doubles as a utility room.


Outside offers a beautiful rear deck potted garden area, accessed from the kitchen. The large fore deck is a sun trap and perfect for taking in the view and watch the boats go by. A platform has been added to the waterside of the hull to allow access to and from a small boat or canoe. There is also off-street parking on Welsh Back and further residents parking permits are available via application to Bristol City Council.


Ideally located to make the most of the city centre location, Glevum is located on Welsh Back, one road back from the beautiful Georgian ‘Queens Square’ which in turn leads to the Bristol theatre district. There are a number of fantastic restaurants, bars and amenities on Kings Street and the Harbourside. Temple Meads Train Station, with fast connections to London, is only 0.5 miles away.
