Description

Premier Houseboats are pleased to present barge no 9, a sympathetic conversion of a Humber Keel offering surprising space and lots of character that creates an almost country cottage feel.

The accommodation of barge no 9 flows nicely, with superb head height throughout, beautiful flooring and many classic features. There is gas central heating throughout, and a good mixture of portholes and skylights providing plenty of natural light.

Entering via the galley, this charming room offers plenty of storage and work surface, as well as a gas oven and fridge. Steps lead down to the saloon, an extremely spacious family area that benefits from portholes, skylights, and a multifuel stove that is a fantastic focal point. Back from the saloon on one side is a study area with plenty of shelving, the other side is a utility area that houses the Alde gas boiler, and has room for a washer/dryer and freezer. There is also room for this to be used as a cloakroom as well.

A corridor leads from the lounge to the bathroom, which has a bath with shower attatchment, hand basin and portable cassette toilet. There are three good sized double bedrooms, all with a mixture of sky lights and portholes, and all with a good amount of storage.

Externally Barge no 9 is in excellent condition and offers a good amount of deck space, with some stunning views across the river Medway and Kent countryside.

Barge no 9 was taken out of the water in 2018 where the hull was completely replated below the waterline , and painted with 2 pac epoxy. The superstructure was also completely repainted, with the roof done again in 2021 using Dulux Metalshield.

Barge no 9 is an extremely well maintained example of a converted Humber keel, and can be a family home offering fantastic space, charming character and secure surroundings.
