Anny is a very pretty and charming 1920s’ Dutch barge with many original features, moored at Imperial Wharf. She is in excellent condition and with modern conveniences all fitted in the last five years, including a multi-fuel wood burning stove and underfloor heating.
There are two bedrooms (the second bedroom/study was the original captain’s cabin) a dressing room and a bathroom. The living space includes a kitchen/diner, reception room, wheelhouse reading room and deck seating area. There’s storage within the engine room.
Anny has had a recent out-of-water survey, during which her hull was repainted, meaning she can be insured for seven years before this has to be repeated. She has a fully functioning engine, is mains-connected and at 21 tons (she is legally termed a ship) has a very gentle movement on the water. She is permanently afloat and is narrow enough to travel on canals and waterways.
This lovely houseboat is located in a well-established and vibrant residential waterfront neighbourhood through the launch of Chelsea Creek, Chelsea Waterside and other luxury developments.
With many cafés and bars nearby in Imperial Wharf, Anny is also in close to the delights of the King’s Road, Sloane Square, Chelsea and Fulham Broadway. And Imperial Wharf London overground station is approximately a two minute walk, with Clapham Junction station one stop away.
