East Molesey Surrey UK
A rare opportunity to purchase an outside residential mooring with 26ft steel Dutch house boat located on a privately owned island in Surrey on the Thames. The boat has a working inboard Yanmar single cylinder engine PMX which is 680cc. There is also a swim deck at the rear. This would be perfect for anyone wanting to have a permanent mooring but who also wants the freedom to cruise regularly up and down the Thames.
The outside mooring is 40ft by 12ft and is located on the traffic free Ash Island which is only 5 minutes walk from Hampton Court train station. South West trains run every half an hour and central London is reachable in less than 35 minutes.
The mooring is nestled amongst a community of other residential boats and is accessed by crossing the lock and weir. Post is delivered to the island daily and there is also a token operated laundry.
240v electricity hook up (charged by meter reading per quarter) and water point are available. BT telephone connection point is also possible subject to BT connection charge. Space for a coal pile and chemical toilet emptying facilities are also on site. Gas bottles and laundry tokens are available from the island office.
No cats or dogs are permitted.
The current mooring rates are as follows:
Paid quarterly : £374 per metre per annum (based on 12m mooring length)
Water charge: £25.00 per quarter
Weir Access Charge: £75.00 per quarter
The mooring is available with immediate effect.
There is no access to the other side of the Thames which means the island is quiet and secluded. Bridge road, East Molesey is only a few minutes walk away and offers a plethora of small shops and pubs. Bushy and Home Park are within walking distance, as is Hampton Court Palace and Kingston is easily accessed by boat, bike or bus.
This is a beautiful area which offers an array of nature and stunning views all year round. Although it is situated only 14 miles from central London it has a truly rural and village feel.
