Overview

Description

We are pleased to offer this steel hull widebeam 57 x 12’ crusier built by Price Fallows and Co in 2004 and available on a secure residential mooring close to Hampton Court on Ash Island. 

The vessel itself has a large kitchen breakfast room with double berth , bathroom and lounge and would be suitable for a base for Central London work or as a weekend retreat, or a full time home. 

The idyllic island is privately owned and is home to a thriving community of more than 30 houseboats. There is a boatyard and launderette on the island. There is only one access point to the island so you cannot get to the other bank of the Thames. This means that the island and its green spaces are very quiet and secluded. 

Hampton Court Village with its variety of amenities is within walking distance and includes a selection of independent shops, restaurants and bars in Bridge Road together with the historic Hampton Court Palace, and beautiful Bushy Park.  

Towpath walks are possible in both directions, towards Kingston or upstream past the rowing club, cricket club and on through Molesey.
