Homebuyers looking for something a bit different will love the chance to bid for a fully refurbished 1909 Dutch barge which is now moored as a very stylish houseboat on The Thames.

The houseboat, named Transporteur, is being offered in an online auction with SDL Auctions, in partnership with the Hampton office of London and Surrey estate agent Jezzards.

This home on the river is moored at Platts Eyot, close to Hampton. It has three bedrooms, a modern fitted kitchen and modern bathroom and has a staircase from the rear deck and is offered with a starting price of £220,000.

Potential buyers need to move quickly as the auction closes at midday on Thursday, September 6.

In 2017, Transporteur underwent a full high quality refit in excess of £45,000. It now has its Boat Safety Certificate in place.

The mooring at Platts Eyot is ideally placed for the routes to Richmond and Heathrow. The houseboat is also within walking distance of Hampton village and a mainline station with direct links to Waterloo in around 45 minutes. It is offered freehold and has a total floor area of 581 sq ft.
