Parbold is a houseboat barge for sale on a residential mooring at Packet Boat marina. Her mooring is particularly attractive, offering unoverlooked, uninterrupted views of the Grand Union canal with the benefit of all the onshore facilities offered by Packet Boat marina including free, secure car parking

With her vast, open plan, living room and fully equipped kitchen, she is a wonderful home in which to relax, work or entertain. Two double bedrooms are provided, one very large and the other capable accommodating a standard double or childrens bunk bed. A smart bathroom with shower completes the accommodation and mention should also be made of her expansive deck areas, ideal for enjoying the stunning views or dining al fresco.

Heating is provided by two stoves and Parbold can be moved onto immediately.

Very much a houseboat, please note that Parbold doesn't have an engine as she is on the Historic Ships Register and was the last commercial horse drawn barge to retire in 1961. Her current owner has moved onshore and is keen to sell so sensible offers will be entertained.

Her current residential mooring fees are £15,000 p.a. and, assuming her new owner wishes to keep her at the marina, there is a "one off" Transfer of Mooring Fee payable of 7.5% + VAT of the price paid for her.

Just a stroll along the tow path from the new Elizabeth Line at West Drayton station (Zone 6) and then less than half an hour to central London, Packet Boat is is perfectly located for city commuters or those needing the nearby M4, M25 and Heathrow. Despite it's unrivalled transport links, Packet Boat Marina is a safe, tranquil haven in the countryside, surrounded by nature and with a wonderful community of boat owners. A sociable club house and excellent on shore facilities are also provided.
