Living on the water is a romantic notion and modern boats and moorings make it a practical one too. This idyllic way of life can come with compromises, but this is not so with "Joseph Conrad." This beautiful two bedroom floating home offers over 2000 square feet of cleverly designed accommodation. A 30 metre Dutch barge, she was originally converted in the 1970s and was subsequently the subject of a complete and extremely extensive refurbishment some four years ago. My client informs me that this was a real "nuts and bolts" rebuild which took the boat back to a mere shell. Re-hulled, rewired and refitted she is now a most beautiful home in which the quality of design is consistently matched by the quality of the materials and finish. Entertaining is enhanced by Sonos zoned in every room and a state of the art John Cullen designed lighting system. The accommodation comprises a gloriously light-drenched open plan kitchen/reception of over 50 foot in length, two substantial double bedrooms, three extremely stylish bathrooms, a study area and an additional WC. The boat has been designed in such a way that if you require three bedrooms then the addition of a simple stud wall will create a generous double with en suite. But what really continues to surprise is the incredible light and sense of space here. There is nothing remotely pokey or compromised. So, finally, to the view and location. Arguably one of the most sought after addresses in the world, the boat is situated on what is considered the prime mooring, close to the entrance on Cheyne Walk. This makes her easily accessible and offers what has to be amongst the most glorious views of the river that London can afford. Joseph Conrad famously wrote the classic "Heart of Darkness" and this boat certainly comes into its own after dark as a glamorous entertaining space with spectacular views.
