Full Description: Premier Houseboats are pleased to present Matilda, a static barge on a residential mooring now in need of total refurbishment.Matilda was a lovely home in peaceful surroundings for a number of years, however has fallen into a state of disrepair due to unavoidable circumstances. She currently has a deck level structure housing kitchen and shower room, with steps through a hatch down to the internal hull accommodation, which had been used as a sleeping/lounge area. The obvious suggestion would be to take down the deck level structure and replace it with a larger structure to house an open plan kitchen/ lounge structure, with patio doors opening on to the deck/outside space. Below deck accommodation has plenty of headroom and could either have two double bedrooms and a shower room, or one double, shower room and second living area. This area needs taking back to steel and completely restarting the conversion from scratch. There are a couple of places in the deck where water leaks in which need treating. Externally, Matilda needs cleaning of any surface rust and repainting. She is on a nice mooring withing the marina, and can provide comfortable accommodation whilst her length keeps mooring fees and ongoing costs relatively low. Overall Matilda offers massive potential as a project to create an affordable and deceptively spacious home in peaceful surroundings, and should be viewed with this in mind.
