A working barge has been renovated into a charming living space in London.
Many people don’t know this about me, but I used to live on a boat. My father was a boat captain, so when I was born we lived on his boat for a few years, until my brothers and sisters came along. That being said, I can fully understand and appreciate the finer points of living on the water, specifically the sense of freedom that comes with being unmoored.
This adorable barge home in London has all of the niceties you expect from a normal home, without a concrete foundation.
Located in Poplar Dock Marina, a gated marina community, this 812 square foot barge has been totally renovated into a legitimate houseboat. It features an updated galley kitchen, large ensuite master bedroom, twink bunk-rooms, porthole windows, a refurbished wheelhouse, and a wood terrace.
The renovators did their best to keep as much of the natural structural elements as possible, but updated everything else in a modern, Scandinavian style.
The nautical modern barge house is currently on the London market for $423,000.via ]
