Bosco Houseboat

Bosco is a magnificently renovated 1950s Dutch barge that is tastefully decorated and anchored on the southern banks of the Thames river in London. It has a unique 120-year mooring on Batterseas Oyster Pier. She has three bedrooms, two living areas, a utility room, an open-concept kitchen and dining area, and an exquisite winter garden on the deck. She was created by the owners of LAB Architects for their own family. Bosco, which has an interior size of more than 2,150 square feet, has all the advantages of a great family home with the special addition of the serenity that comes with living by the river. Bosco is also exempt from stamp duty because it is a houseboat.

Bosco was once a commercial freight barge that traveled the European rivers with grain and coal. The ship needed to be completely re-engineered in order to be converted into a cozy family home; a new steel and glass top section was constructed, and the interior space was organized in a way that complemented the rhythm of the pre-existing brass portholes.

The boat is being sold along with a safe, private 40-meter mooring at Oyster Pier with an extremely long leasehold term.
