beautiful residential dutch barge
Location: Cuxton, Kent
Premier Houseboats are pleased to present Eben Hauzer, an incredibly spacious and sympathetically converted Dutch barge, in full cruising condition on a secure residential mooring with stunning views along the river Medway.
Eben Hauzer offers an amazing amount of space both internally and externally, and unusually is moored on its own pontoon within the marina enabling it to offer a prime mooring and peaceful and quiet family living. Accommodation is in two separate parts, offering the ability to rent one part as a self contained apartment, without having any impact on the living space offered by the main accommodation.
The good sized collapsible wheelhouse offers panoramic views for navigation or just enjoying the scenery, with steps leading down to the former crews quarters, now a cosy self contained living area. This contains a double berth, lovely saloon with log burner, kitchenette and a separate toilet that could easily be turned into a wet room.
The main accommodation is a fantastic combination of size, space and character. Entering by the wheelhouse there is a stairway that leads to a cloakroom area that also has a shower room with shower cubicle, hand basin and a new toilet. This area also houses the diesel boiler for the central heating. A further short stairway/ramp leads to the stunning living area.
This area is both extremely spacious and very well fitted out, with the characterful feel you would expect. This area flows beautifully, and manages to feel both open plan whilst also retaining the feel of where the lounge stops and the large kitchen diner starts. The lounge area houses a beautiful multi fuel burning stove that provides an excellent focal point whilst complimenting the full central heating running throughout the boat.
The kitchen/diner is another wonderful space, with plenty of work surface and storage, as well as fridge, freezer, dish washer, LPG oven and sink. The area also has plenty of space for a large dining table, and is a great family area.
Forward from the kitchen a corridor leads to three bedrooms to large doubles with a great amount of storage, and a third which currently has a hand built single bed but could also easily house a double bed. To the back of the boat is the family bathroom, with toilet, hand basin, stand alone bath and a massive walk in shower area. This area also houses the washing machine.
The main accommodation is well decorated throughout, with beautiful flooring and good headroom. All the natural light comes from the fitted skylights running the length of the boat, that give ample light as well as offering privacy at the same time. Externally, the usable deck space is an incredible place in which to fully appreciate and enjoy the calm and peaceful surroundings of river life. The Mercedes-Benz diesel engine provides plenty of power to cruise this exceptional cruising home, which also has a Lister 13 KVA generator for use when cruising.
This is a stunning example of a well maintained, well converted Dutch barge, and whether cruising or on a mooring, she offers a fantastic life changing opportunity.
