Brentwood, London London UK
3x Freehold Moorings.
A rare and unique opportunity to acquire a freehold fully enclosed garden mooring in the Heart of London on the River Brent, situated between the Thames Lock and the Gauging Lock on the Grand Union Canal in Brentford.
Close to local amenities inc underground & overground train services.
The three moorings are approximately 65 foot long. It is possible to overlap the tip of the entrance to the basin slightly and fit say 70 foot long vessels, but technically 65 feet is the official length.
The mooring is semi-tidal and is protected by normal daily tidal changes seen on the River Thames by the Tidal Lock.
Situated south of the Gauging Lock, it falls outside of the jurisdiction of Canal & River Trust & is exempt of any licence fee requirements.
The freehold land is fully enclosed by fencing and two steel gates.
Mains electricity and water.
Council tax band A.
The freehold land is fully enclosed by fencing with two pedestrian steel gates. There is a letter box and a postal service is provided.
The property is serviced with mains electricity and mains water. There is an electricity spur from the main electricity meter with an additional electricity meter, should the owner wish to let one of the moorings to a 3rd party.
There is no mains drainage on the site as the boats use the pump out station at the marina. There is obviously mains drainage nearby, but the buyer would need to undertake any installation if required.
The mooring is subject to council tax at band A rating.
This land might suit someone looking for an alternative to buying a leasehold apartment as there are no ground rent and maintenance charges and it could support a spacious luxury vessel with outside space and the option of getting out onto the River Thames or up the Grand Union Canal whenever it suites.
Another option might be to buy this land with other boaters and each own a mooring with a share of the bank.
It would also suit commercial uses. A bar or cafe for example with overflow tables and chairs on the bank. Situated next to the footbridge with a proper steel staircase leading down, there could be a ready supply of customers.
The basin behind is currently undergoing a complete regeneration program and will include upmarket bars, cafés and restaurants. To be called 'The Waterside' any freehold land around the basin will be highly sought after.

Please note, the land for sale is 65 feet long and a boat can be moored against it. Because the River Brent is wide at this point, it is possible to moor three narrowboats abreast, i.e. one narrowboat alongside the bank and two further narrowboats alongside.
There is no set distance from the bank that indicates the limit, surfice to say three narrowboats have always moored there and this has allowed sufficient space for other vessels to pass each other travelling up and down the river. If a new owner wished to moor four narrowboats or perhaps multiple wide beam vessels, which require more space out over the water, we cannot see a problem, though equally we would not offer any assurances that no one would take issue with it.
Further note, please be advised that we have had a great deal of interest, but the biggest challenge is obtaining finance. Because the land cannot be built upon, it is not classed as a building plot and therefore traditional mortgages are not available. We believe that only commercial loans, investment loans and regular bank loans are available. You would be advised to assess you funding options before travelling to London to avoid disappointment.
Final note, the moorings are for sale and not available to rent.
