MAA Architects Design A Houseboat In London’s River Thames
The contemporary houseboat is almost completed, but has purposely been left unfinished, so the new owners can complete it to their own taste.
The houseboat’s description
This impressive floating home, which has over 3,000 sq ft of internal accommodation, was designed by MAA Architects and can be found on the sought-after Taggs Island, close to Hampton Court Palace.
The houseboat comes with a rare freehold mooring (125 ft river frontage) and beautiful landscaped gardens of approximately half an acre as well as a garage and summerhouse.
Accommodation is arranged over two floors. The ground floor is entered via a magnificent timber front doors that leads into a reception hall.
To the right of the hall is a kitchen / dining space (with glazed doors that lead out onto a deck), a utility room and a WC/shower room. To the left of the hall is a space that was originally intended as an art gallery but could be used as bedroom(s), studio or any other purpose. Next to this is a self contained annexe, complete with bedroom, shower room and kitchen area.
Steps lead up from the hall to the first floor which is largely taken up with a spectacular living space. This room features floor to ceiling glass on both sides – giving wonderful river and garden views – and a suspended wood burning fireplace.
Also on this floor are three bedrooms (one with en suite shower room) and a family bathroom. There are three balconies on this floor that allow occupants to enjoy the amazing river setting. As well as the balconies, there is a good sized roof deck with far reaching river views.
The landscaped gardens are a significant part of the appeal of this property and serve to enhance the idyllic riverside setting. As well as extensive lawns, there is off-street parking for five cars, two access driveways, a garage/workshop, summerhouse, outbuildings, slipway and potential to moor motorboats around the perimeter of the houseboat itself.
