This strong, sturdy Sheffield class barge has been professionally converted into a cracking full time live aboard or holiday home. It is currently situated on a sheltered, peaceful, riverside mooring in a much desired area of Plymouth, Devon but it is fitted with a fully reconditioned Gardiner engine & bow thruster, should you wish to move to another location of your choice.
Beautifully presented and spacious, this enormous barge has full central heating with modern radiators throughout, powered by a choice of diesel or multi fuel system.
The large living area includes a double aft cabin / bedroom to stern with en suite shower room and a further master double forward cabin / bedroom with en suite bathroom, featuring a whirlpool spa bath.
There is a large, well equipped, fully fitted open plan kitchen / diner / saloon, a further large reception room above in the coachroof / wheelhouse (currently laid out as a dining / lounge / office area) and a covered aft deck / veranda for alfresco entertaining, relaxing or simply taking in the views / local wildlife / nature (there is a canvas enclosure for inclement weather).
Attractively finished with decorative stain glassed port holes / companionway doors, the accommodation feels very light and airy with polished floors below foot and high ceilings throughout. On a practical level, there is a utility room below the staircase, a workshop area to the stern and a further storage room up forward behind a mirror door.
The white goods, cooker and appliances are all included in the inventory and there is an option to include other items of furniture currently onboard if required.
Well presented, spacious, light and airy, this is a ready made waterfront home on a grand size and scale. Viewing highly recommended.
