The J.H Bonham is an original dutch barge. Currently moored in a great location with rail links to London with Honeybourne/Paddington main-line only ten minutes away, Warwick Parkway is also only 20 minutes away.
This mooring is quiet, well managed, well kept and has a small friendly community. It is located on one of the most beautiful and peaceful stretches of the River Avon, with superb wildlife and good fishing. Bidford on Avon Golf Club lies opposite. The mooring is part of a large country estate once belonging to the late Felix Dennis. His famous woodlands (www.heartofenglandforest.com) lie opposite allowing for fabulous walks. Located on the edge of the Cotswolds and Stratford upon Avon, and a great village pub only a stroll away make this a supremely desirable location as a houseboat or as a unique holiday stay.
This unique boat has been recently renovated creating a lovely houseboat. She was built in Holland in 1914 and converted into a houseboat in the late 30's. As a four berth houseboat she has been extensively insulated so is warm and cosy. Has new heating along with a new Morco hot water system. Includes a modern pump-out flush toilet and power shower, bringing her in line to suit comfortable modern day houseboat living.
Through a small hatchway to the stern lies an attractive separate double bedroom complete with new hand-made sprung double mattress, TV facility, built in hanging space and under bed storage. Two single berths to main cabin with large storage drawers beneath. Front access door to bow deck, ideal for seating. Kitchen area comprises of new drawers and cupboards fitted with natural hard wood worktops, a Stoves oven, grill and hob, fridge, dishwasher and washing machine.
A removable hardwood wheelhouse is complete with half glazed stable entrance door, carpeted with a bench seat. Hardwood tops to dashboard and cupboards. Large access to engine room via hatch in wheelhouse floor. The boat has the original gypsy chain steering system. She is in fantastic condition for a boat of her age, which just adds to her charm.
She can be sold with the existing mooring providing electric hook up and free wi-fi. There is hard-standing car parking available at the marina and in the summer cars are allowed to park directly adjacent to the boat.
Only serious buyers please.
