I’m pleased to present Liberty Belle, a beautifully constructed houseboat on a stunning residential mooring situated on the Grand Union Canal, Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire. Close to M25, M40, M1 & M4 road networks and located along the Metropolitain Tube Line (Zone 7), which is less than 1h to Kings Cross and Victoria, exceptional opportunity - commute and enjoy what the capital has to offer vs better quality of life.
Liberty Belle has the look of a Dutch static houseboat; however, she can be moved under her own power by simply adding an outboard engine into a hatch on the stern, she is navigated by traditional tiller steering.
The construction of the home is impressive, made entirely of steel by the renowned Liverpool boat builder: John White Boat Builders in 1991, Hull No.1.
Situated on a south facing mooring, it benefits from amazing natural sunlight and daylight light even on an overcast day. The houseboat has a powerful Morso Squirrel stove, ample for heating inside and surrounded by beautiful antique tiles make it a striking feature of the interior. The interior features a newly completed fit out, benefiting from a fitted kitchen and bathroom.
The modern kitchen has ample wooden work surfaces and impressive storage within the white gloss units, and benefits from a new Calor gas cooker and extractor, fridge/freezer, sink and instant water heater which also serves the bathroom. The bathroom is essentially a wet room which features a small bath with shower and also features Thetford cassette toilet and free-standing hand basin.
She has been finished to an extremely high standard throughout, with great thought given to providing a very comfortable open plan living. She is moored on a residential mooring on a private farm featuring a community of 42 residential boats in a much sought-after part of the country, offering an extremely affordable opportunity to live on the Grand Union Canal. The mooring itself features a private grassed garden, bound by timber fencing and native hedgerow, offering stunning views across horse fields as well providing privacy, peace and quiet. This houseboat can stay on its current mooring and is fully transferable to the new owner, subject to signing of a mooring agreement from the land owners.
The mooring benefits from its own water supply, metered 240v electric hook up, BT telecommunications and if wanted can even accommodate Sky TV. The private farm also features a communal car park, secure post room and refuse including recycling facilities. The opportunity to live afloat on a mooring such as this is rare, and, taking into account the quality build of this houseboat, represents excellent value for money. Liberty Belle needs to be viewed to truly appreciate this life changing opportunity.
