Uxbridge London UK
Ellie is on a much sought after private gated Mooring, just outside Uxbridge (Cowley) with large shared garden and plenty of parking, electric and water all available (small monthly cost to landlord of area). Landline point for fibre broadband (up to 76mbps openreach) in electric box on mooring.
There is a large covered area at the back of the boat (canopy has seen better days but fully intact), with 2 built in storage containers and room for seating. You enter down into a spacious double bedroom with 2 built in wardrobes, additional storage in/under the airlift double bed. There is also a smaller single bedroom with additional storage areas. The bathroom has a nice sized power shower, toilet (pump out septic tank, nearest pump out station is about 10 minutes away at Paddington Packet Boat Marina), and basin. Modern Kitchen has gas cooker (2 gas bottles located in storage area in bow of the boat), fridge, freezer and microwave, with plenty of cupboard space and countertops. Massive lounge with digital aerial for TV, and corner sofa which pulls out into a double bed. The boat is being sold partially furnished with the sofa and all kitchen appliances included if wanted. There is a multi fuel fire connected to a water pump and separate small water tank on the outside of the boat, which is used to heat the radiators located in the bedroom, hallway and bathroom. Plenty of powerpoints, 12 and 240v lighting throughout. Beautiful wood flooring throughout lounge area, with cream carpets in bedrooms, and a neutral decor throughout, perfect for anyone to put their own style on the place. With large windows down both sides of the boat, lockable hatch doors in bedroom and kitchen, the boat is very light and airy, easily staying cool in the summer. Through the front doors there is a smaller outside area, under which is the water tank; not sure of the exact size but with 2 people living aboard lasts about a month between refills depending on use! There is a frame in place for a front canopy, however this was not in a good condition when we bought the boat so was removed.
The boat has recently undergone a lot of electrical work on the engine, with one new alternator fitted, all engine electrical wiring examined and replaced if needed, one new domestic battery and 4 of 5 leisure batteries also replaced. Ellie has a solar panel located on the roof which helps top up the leisure batteries. She was last out of the water and blacked about 3 years ago, she was inspected and no other work was needed at the time.
Mooring is 5 mins from West Drayton station, which will be on the Elizabeth line Crossrail fast train from Reading - Shenfield getting to Paddington in mere minutes starting from December 2019... Currently Paddington is a 20 minute train from there or you have the Metropolitan and Picadilly lines from Uxbridge 10 mins away... 222 bus stops at the top of the road every 10 mins and is 24hrs.
The front and back exterior could do with a bit of tlc, but all purely aesthetic, interior is lovely and would make a perfect liveaboard for any couple with plenty of room for guests, especially with the mooring and location.
