We are selling our lovely narrow boat “Chloe” after 8 years of living and working in London. Retirement means that we are moving back out to the sticks and hopefully passing on this fabulous and well maintained narrow boat to fresh arrivals.
It measures 52 ft. x 6 ft. 5 in. originally built in 2002 with the hull having been surveyed, blackened and new anodes fitted in 2018. The entrance is found at the stern where the engine and controls are located within an enclosed area with seating, this leads down to the accommodation which comprises; fitted kitchen with a breakfast bar for two and good storage options for the size of the boat, open-plan living area with a sofa bed, a well-designed and tiled shower/wet room with toilet, basin and cupboard and a separate double bedroom with a wall mounted TV and door leading to the bow of the boat. Overall the boat is in very good condition and is a very good purchase in this location. Poplar Dock Marina has a day watchman service and offers internet and residents’ parking (at extra cost), a marina diesel, gas, wood & coal delivery service, 24 hour security contact, CCTV, a great communal entertaining space with heat lamps and wonderful furniture, water points and electric to all moored boats. The marina also offers amenities such as showers and toilets newly built for those who don’t have their own facilities in their boat. Current Leisure Mooring Charges are £8,719 per annum. Mooring transfer is by direct agreement with the marina and is currently priced at 5% of the sale figure.
LOCATION The boat is moored in Poplar Dock Marina only minutes from Canary Wharf which will benefit from Crossrail in December 2019 and will provide services East and West across London and also connecting to Heathrow directly in under 50 minutes. The nearest DLR station is a short 5 minute walk away at Blackwall with the Jubilee Line at Canary Wharf 12 minutes walk and the over ground at Shadwell. The Eurostar from Kings Cross goes to France and other European locations as well as across London. There is an abundance of quality bus services such as the, D3, D6, D7, 277, D8, 15. The location benefits from such a comprehensive network system of inter-connected transport systems providing easy access around London as well as further afield via City Airport.
Canary Wharf has a multitude of shops, restaurants, banks, cinemas and a Waitrose and ASDA Superstore close by. There is also the water taxi on the Thames with a stop at Canary Wharf as well as the wonderful walking tunnel at the bottom of the island that is just a 10 minute walk underneath the Thames to Greenwich.
We have enjoyed the location of Poplar Dock with it’s friendly and diverse community, brilliant transport links, Canary Wharf and its facilities ( shops, supermarkets, cinema, museum, nightclubs, gyms etc) being so close by, local fruit and veg markets and the newly reopened art deco swimming baths. There are an abundance of great local walks such as Island Gardens, the pedestrian river tunnel leading to Greenwich or Trinity buoy wharf for the Faraday Exhibition, container society studios and a fun diner
The boat, marina and area has a great deal going for it.
