Bursledon Houseboat For Sale
If you want the ultimate in riverside living, why not opt to live right on the water on a houseboat.

"Corrie" is one such property currently on the market. She's a 92ft barge requiring a lot of tlc to make her shipshape again but has ‘very generous accommodation, good headroom, natural light, attractive lines and an idyllic mooring’. There are generous decks to enjoy the setting on the River Hamble too.

Inside, the aft cabin suite is habitable and has been partly refurbished. It includes two large single / small double berths, a dayroom, galley cabin and W.C cabin.

The main hold has been stripped out to bare shell and totals 81sq. metres of floorspace with 2.5m headroom and roof openings for woodburner and has access through a hardwood entranceway with full size doorway and enough headroom to fit a standard pitch stairway.

The forepeak cabin has a single berth, accessed from the deck hatch and the wheelhouse has the original hardwood bench seating and linings.

Apart from the refurb inside, the hull bottom plating will need a small repair in an area of localised damage. This has been temporarily repaired from the inside and a surveyors report is available, indicating that the repaired area is safe for towage to a shipyard/slipway and otherwise safe on the mooring for a few years.

If you've always wanted a place on the waters edge and fancy some DIY, then this is a great opportunity to acquire a houseboat that can be renovated exactly as you wish.
