Op Hoop Van Zegen is a lovingly restored 43' Dutch barge with an immaculate riveted iron hull, built in 1900. She is ready to move in immediately.
She was last taken out and surveyed in 2014, and has a boat safety certificate to 2020.
The living space has been fully restored over the past 7 years, with all major structural and internal works undertaken. The wet room has recently been replaced and is fully waterproof. The electrics and plumbing have all been renewed. The interior is brand new and insulated with wood cladding throughout.
The engine has been officially decommissioned, as this gives it a half price river licence, saving £350 per year.
She is currently moored on Ash Island, which is located on a beautiful part of the river by Hampton Court palace. This is a rare opportunity to live on a permanent residential mooring on the upper Thames, with fantastic transport links to central London, and free parking nearby. The local village of East Molesey (Hampton Court village) has a thriving high street with a selection of pubs, restaurants and independent shops. It's a relaxed island to live on, with a nice community and all the essentials like electrics, water, telephone, laundry facilities, gas bottles, post delivery and wheelie bins available on the island. Mooring fees are approximately £400pcm.
