Studio on a Barge / Boat House / Holly Lou

Regents Canal, London, W105AA View map

Posted 10/12/2018, updated 10 months, 2 weeks ago (10/12/2018).

1 bedroom part furnished house £760 a month
Available immediately for 12 months or over.

A space or could be called an apartment with a 1 bedroom, storage room, kitchen, bathroom on barge / boat house, which is 11 meters long and 2.2 meters wide. This space is suitable for one or two persons.

This is a unique opportunity to live on the water.

You will have the whole space/boat for yourself. Boat has 5 spaces in total: OUTSIDE - controlling the boat, keeping the bike and steering the boat, BEDROOM - empty with just a mattress, you can self arrange how you wish, BATH ROOM - bathtube, sink and toilet, KITCHEN - where all the food magic happens, FRONT SPACE - for the storage and for having a cup of tea outside the boat once the weather is good.

The barge has limited capacity of water (around 400 liters) and toilet (25 liters), thus every week or every second week it will have to go to refill the water and empty the toilet. You will learn how to manage the boat.

The barge is slightly moving when other boats pass and create waves or when you are moving inside, otherwise - you should not feel any movement, since the canal water is quite still.

The barge is not furnished in the bedroom (there is just a mattress), but otherwise has all the kitchen appliances.

The electricity is provided and water is heated by running an engine.

Heating is provided in an old fashioned retro cozy way – wooden and coal stove/burner.

Unfortunately, there is no internet, so you will have to use your mobile phone / hotspot.

Second unfortunate, there is no space and way to wash and dry clothes, thus you will have to use laundrette.

There are no possibilities to have a permanent address. You will have to either use the previous address or your job address, or PO box (something like londonpobox offering).

The barge at the moment is located in Kensal Green, but you will have to move every 2 weeks, from Uxbridge to Kensal Green to Little Venice to Paddington to Kentish Town to Kings Cross to Victoria Park to Limehouse to Hackney to Enfield and back. Essentially, you will always stay within 1-4 zones, and rarely cruise to 5-6 zones.

The rent includes everything: gas, electricity, water, taxes, heating, fixes. Also, it includes uncomfortable times :) when something is not working and needs to be fixed, but takes some time.

No DSS, No Benefits, No Pets, No Smoking on the Barge.

But Yes to Flowers and Plants on the roof :)

This is an outstanding opportunity to have a very quiet and relaxing way of living in London, near the water with greenness (plus ducks and swans) around and possibility to have bbq one step away on the green tow path shore.

The terms of the rent: £175 a week. There is a deposit of 4 weeks and minimum rent contract 6 months. Payments are made for 2 weeks in advance, you and I could cancel the agreement 4 weeks before the termination of the rent.

You must be friendly, clean and tidy person. You will have the boat for yourself, so our communication is of utmost importance. The boat will be monthly visited by myself or someone to check if everythings works well. Given there will be some works needed, an engineer will come to fix the issues. The boat will always be attached to another boat - to easen the navigation, share the tools and help each other. Both boats will navigate together. You dont need to have prior knowledge how to steer and manage the boat or have driving license.

NO TIME WASTERS - please study carefully the photos, what is written and only if you are very sure contact me and arrange the meeting.
