Premier Houseboats are pleased to present Initio, a beautifully converted Dutch barge on a residential mooring offering light, spacious living accommodation and good outside space.
Initio has been thoughtfully converted, with all available space used to its full potential. Entrance is through the wheelhouse, which has panoramic views and still has features from its original use, and can be a nice daytime lounge area.
Stairs lead forward to the main living area, open plan and nicely decorated. There are plenty of windows, including electrically operated sky lights. The focal point of the kitchen area is the aga, which runs on coal or wood, and provides heat and hot water for the entire boat. There is plenty of storage space and work space, and a breakfast bar with three stools. This entire area benefits from underfloor heating, and the good sized lounge is a comfortable living area.
Forward from this is a bedroom, that currently has a single bed, built in storage, and a separate wc with hand basin.
Stairs lead back from the wheelhouse to further accommodation. This includes a utility area under the wheelhouse, with washing machine, a further sleeping area, and more storage.
There is a family bathroom with shower cubicle, toilet and hand basin. Back from this is a double cabin, again with lots of built in storage. This entire area is well thought out and extremely well fitted, again with plenty of light provided by both windows and skylights.
All beds and furniture will stay with the boat, which is ready to move into, and can be a beautiful family home amongst a secure and friendly community.
