If you have ever considered the possibility of living on the water, then this really must be one of the most individual, quality house boats around offering a great opportunity for a waterside residence. With an ever changing view flowing past your window you will really feel that you are on holiday every single day.

Alchemy was commissioned from new in 2013 and then fitted internally by a professional cabinet maker using English Walnut and Oak. One of the most impressive features of Alchemy is its tambour roof which when open reveals the stunning kitchen and wheelhouse to the open air.

The kitchen itself is hand built with reclaimed slate worktops, Belfast sink, gas cooker and fridge. it is located on the top deck of the boat incorporating the wheelhouse and has wooden frame double glazed windows on each side, and when the sun shines you can turn back the tambour roof, drop the windows and reveal the ultimate outdoor kitchen/entertaining space which will certainly be the envy of your friends!

Below deck to the right is the aft cabin or second bedroom. Cleverly hidden behind tambour doors is a washing machine/tumble drier and a freezer; whilst the two sofas turn to single beds.

From the kitchen steps lead down towards the bow to the lounge/dining room with multi fuel burner, attractive portholes and hand finished paneling and shelving. The L-shaped sofa converts to a king sized bed for guests when required and discreetly provides storage for bedding beneath.

The Walnut dining table and chairs compliments the room perfectly and together with the built in storage and display shelving creates a homely space.

The bespoke walnut veneer curved wall leads you through to the adjacent contemporary styled shower room with walk in shower, low level wc and unique wooden sink on a vanity unit. The shower room has the benefit of underfloor heating.

The master bedroom at the bow is again beautifully light with fitted wardrobes, dressing table unit and built in king size bed.

Throughout the houseboat you will not fail to recognise the quality and workmanship that has been bestowed upon it.

Outside the aft deck is laid with Permateak creating the ideal space for a patio table and chairs and some garden pots or even vegetable pots, and you will never want to leave.
