The floating home: Could you live in a house like this?

Updated:

Not all homes are the same. In fact, many of the properties coming up for sale in the UK every week are downright bizarre.

That doesn't mean they won't make beautiful, happy homes, though. This week, let's climb aboard a 58 foot cruising Dutch barge.

Description
This cruising houseboat, complete with 140hp Volvo Penta engine and a built in 1500rpm 18kva diesel generator, is in superb condition.

The vessel, which is currently moored in London and was refurbished in 2013, would handle fast flowing rivers with ease.

Details
The accommodation on board includes a double bedroom, a shower room and an open plan kitchen, dining and living space.

There are brand new windows throughout and the boat can sleep a maximum of four people.

Pros and cons
There is something very romantic about living on a boat, especially one with such lovely living quarters.

There will be some compromises to make, though. You'll have to do without a bath for a start.

Price
£42,990
