Not just by the river, with this five-bedroom modernist floating home on Taggs Island, Hampton, Middlesex, you are on it.
Effectively this is a houseboat of sorts, located on a freehold mooring (with 125ft of River Thames frontage) and private grounds of around half an acre. The location seems to be a hip place too – said to be home to successful artists, writers and musicians, according to the agent, offering a secluded location with all the essential amenities for everyday existence (gas, water etc).
The rather striking, heavily-glazed house seems like a new-build, hence the lack of internal shots. If you buy, you can add your own ‘finishing touches’ according to to your taste. That’s a lot of touches too, as the house is spacious, able to adapt from a five-bedroom family home (with separate au pair accommodation) to an artist’s living space, studio or gallery if that’s what you prefer. See the floorplan on the listing for an idea of how that would work.
Away from the modernist property is the land, which is ‘secluded and beautifully planted’, throwing in off street parking for five cars, two access driveways, garage/workshop, summerhouse, outbuildings, slipway and the potential to moor motorboats around the perimeter of the houseboat itself.
If it’s your dream home, you’ll need around £1,800,000 to secure it.
