A rare opportunity to acquire this beautifully converted residential 28 metre Luxe Motor Dutch Barge. Originally built in 1927, Catharina was a commercial cargo barge, and later on, a travelling theatre barge alongside the French canal network before being converted to a houseboat. Located within the sought-after Victoria Steps Quay, this share of freehold opportunity includes riverside land, allocated parking, storage, office, garden workshop with no mooring fees in perpetuity. The boat itself has three cabins, (all with fitted cupboards and en suite shower room to the primary), an expansive open-plan kitchen/reception with skylights and windows at water level affording views of the Thames and towards Kew Gardens, a contemporary bathroom, and a fully equipped wheelhouse with panoramic views towards Kew Bridge. Further benefits include a working DAF 615 engine. The barge was last surveyed in 2018, had its hull re-blacked in 2018 and exterior epoxy coated in 2021 at MSO. Victoria Steps Quay is also only a short walk away from the many pubs and restaurants of Kew & Chiswick areas, with main transport links being the Kew Bridge National Rail Station and the A4/M4. Council Tax band A.
