Premier Houseboats is pleased to present THE dream, an incredibly spacious houseboat on a stunning freehold residential mooring with a quarter of an acre of mature garden and outbuildings, in the middle of the beautiful Kent countryside.
THE HOUSEBOAT : The Persevere was built 11 years ago to the current owner's strict specifications, and what has been created is an airy two double bedroomed flat bottomed floating house. There is an amazing 10 feet of headroom throughout, with lots of floor to ceiling windows and large port holes giving plenty of light. There is a built-in wood burning stove with back boiler that powers the central heating, and an immersion tank to store hot water. The boat has its own waste system that turns sewage to clean and clear water. There are two large double bedrooms, and a family bathroom, as well as a utility / laundry room with washing machine. The massive 1000 square foot living area provides spacious accommodation and includes a fully fitted kitchen area with electric oven and hob, fridge/freezer, dish-washer and plenty of storage and work surface. This floating house is all electric, with solar panels on the roof, LED lighting throughout and heavy insulation, which means low electricity bills. A Sky satellite dish and fast BT broadband are already installed.
Structurally, there is the opportunity to add a second floor if desired.
THE MOORING : the very rare freehold mooring is 100 feet by 35 feet, enabling you to keep small boat in front of the main houseboat. There are no mooring fees. The strip of land alongside the mooring has two decking platforms, a patio area,a 300 square foot studio/workshop, a smaller office, wood store and shed. The studio and office are fully insulated, with electric points and wi-fi connection.
THE LAND : A full quarter of an acre of prime, mature Kent countryside, sheltered and fenced to allow privacy at all times. Mainly laid to lawn with borders, two ponds (one with colony of newts), with flower and raised vegetable beds all around. There are also several fruit bearing trees in this most serene of settings. In the corner of the property is a geodesic dome which functions as a greenhouse. The front of the property is bordered with one of the best rows of tamarisk trees in Britain. The trees flower pink on and off throughout the summer, depending on the volume of sunshine.
Located in the small village of Conyer, near Teynham, you are just a convenient 15 minute drive to either Faversham or Sittingbourne. Trains into London Victoria from Teynham station take around an hour and ten minutes. Free parking at the station.
All in all this is a dream opportunity to own a maintenance free home in it's own beautiful surroundings, in the middle of the Kent countryside but also a relatively short walk down the street and out on to a glorious nature sanctuary which leads on to spectacular views over the river Swale.
