Premier Houseboats are pleased to present Tantalus, a characterful conversion of an ex coal barge, that has been fitted to create a good sized family home with both a traditional and contemporary feel. Tantalus has been converted to create good living space internally and also has two good sized outside areas.
Tantalus has had great thought put into her conversion, and has an incredible amount of storage throughout. Entering through the front door there is an office area immediately to your left, that enables you to look down over the main living area. A small set of steps lead down to the main living area, which is a superb size with a large settee and a multi fuel stove, together with plenty of light, and even a giant clock on the ceiling. A step leads up to a sectioned off dining area. Along the corridor is a family bathroom with new toilet, hand basin, double shower cubicle and a small room with radiator for drying clothes. Next is the first bedroom, currently with two built in beds but would easily be a comfortable double.
Next along is the kitchen, with plenty of storage and work surface, built in double oven, gas hob and extractor, fridge freezer, washing machine and a breakfast bar.
Along from this is the main bedroom, with built in double bed with storage below, and built in wardrobes. A door leads to outside where there is a small deck area, with steps leading to a larger decked terrace on the roof of the boat, offering commanding views and furnished with table and chairs.
There is excellent headroom throughout the boat, which also has solid wood flooring, and all windows are double glazed units. There is also full gas central heating run from a gas combi boiler in the kitchen. The swim ends either end of the boat provide even more storage if required. The roof has a slight slope allowing any rain water to run easily off the boat and into the river.
Tantalus is ready to move into and is a lovely family home, with superb room both internally and externally, and a good balance of classic and contemporary fittings.
