Chinampa Houseboat

If you love the idea of living on the water, you need to check out this gorgeous houseboat. Currently docked at a residential mooring in Haggerston, East London, this beautiful one-bedroomed 58ft widebeam canal boat has been designed by its current owners (who work in landscaping and fashion). Named Chinampa Houseboat, the beautiful vessel is not only solar-powered, but it boasts a spectacular interior design made up of reclaimed furniture and retro pieces. The floating abode is heated by a Webasto high-performance water heating system and calorifier, and has radiators throughout. Its 4x 130w solar panels allow for 100-percent off-grid living.
