Swan Island, Strawberry Vale, Twickenham

2 2 1

A very attractive, well maintained houseboat built on Swan Island circa 1970 (Length 42ft, Width 12ft). Niann occupies a favourable residential mooring position which allows maximum light into the interior. Views of the Thames can be seen from the deck which is perfect for relaxing and alfresco dining.

Arranged over two levels; upper deck (including deckhouse) and below the deckhouse which is predominantly the main living space. The total floor area extends to 56 m² / 607 ft². Externally there are two decks – all recently painted: a larger deck to the stern, enclosed by a mahogany handrail, which provides plenty of space for a large table and chairs, whilst to the bow, an open deck currently houses a small table and two chairs, but this would easily accommodate sun loungers. Additionally there is a very useful lower deck platform for easy access to launch kayaks and canoes.

The accommodation consists of a triple aspect deckhouse currently set up as a combined home office / sitting room, with space for two armchairs and side table, as well as fixed shelving and hanging area for overcoats immediately as you enter on the left. Solid wood stairs lead down to the lower deck into a good-sized central hallway with doors opening to all rooms. This is where the main front door is located. At the bow end there is a warm and inviting living room with double aspect, a wood and coal burning stove, and a serving hatch through to the kitchen. The modern kitchen has a small breakfast bar and provides storage at eye and base level with under cabinet lighting, washing machine, under counter fridge with icebox, cooker with gas hob and separate microwave.

Located at the stern is a good-sized double bedroom with twin aspect and comprehensive fitted wardrobes and dressing table with storage over. Adjacent to this is a single bedroom with built-in raised bed having fitted storage underneath. Next door is the bathroom with a white suite including bath, pedestal wash basin and composting WC. There is also a chrome heated towel rail. Other notable features include varnished real wood floorboards, timber wall panelling and double glazed windows throughout. 

Location: Access to Swan Island is next to the Riverside Supermarket, close to the mini roundabout at the junction of Strawberry Vale / Cross Deep / Waldegrave Road, which is moments from Radnor Gardens; a beautiful riverside public park with a children’s play area. Strawberry Hill station is a five minute walk away whilst both Twickenham and Teddington High Streets are easily walkable and between them provide extensive amenities, shops and restaurants. Twickenham mainline station provides a fast commute to Waterloo in less than 25 minutes. There are also excellent bus services right on your doorstep, just a few metres away from Swan Island’s entrance.
