London house prices: The £250,000 London home that’s unlike any other – MyLondon

When it comes to finding a place to call your own home in London, the capital isn’t short of spectacular views, great locations and stunning architectural designs.

If you have an unlimited budget, the London property market is your oyster but for most people, house prices tend to daunt rather than excite.

With that being said however, Londoners have become more creative in their search for the perfect home and the market is offering much more than your standard semi-detached.

By trading in dreams of a traditional home and adopting an eye for the unconventional, you could find yourself in a modern, unique and well located home on the river for under £250,000 in no time.

London is home to several beautiful houseboat marinas and St Katherine’s dock, in Wapping, where this remarkable houseboat is located, is no exception.

The recently renovated dock is now a developing waterside community offering nautical activities and that’s before you walk into the boathouse itself.

This one bedroom, modern home is unlike your standard vessel.

The designers at 31/44 Architects put together something rather special.

Forget the gaudy, outdated decor you might find in your typical London home, this well looked after boathouse features a neutral palette that you could expect from a sophisticated apartment.

The cool wood flooring throughout adds a touch of Scandinavian comfort in the winter and remote heating control for those cosy duvet days, on the spacious double bed that fits in the 1 bedroom home.

It also makes for the perfect environment to enjoy a hot summer day if you’re not sunning yourself on the dock, as this 60ft x 12 ft boathouse provides an open space for air to circulate.
