An affordable way to live in a two bedroom property in Chelsea, London for just £194 per square foot
What could possibly be the cheapest way to live in a two bedroom property in Chelsea, SW10 has gone sale for just £55,000 ($73,000, €62,000 or درهم269,000).
Naturally accompanied by several catches – in this case in the form of the fact that the ‘property’ is actually a boat and that it is held on an annually renewable ‘leisure mooring licence’ (that restricts occupancy to a certain number of days per year) – 283 square foot ‘Majjasti’ was built in 1980 and is situated in the Chelsea Harbour marina.
Aside from a spacious wheel house, the insulated, two level boat includes an open plan reception room and kitchen with a large table that converts to a double bed, two single cabins and a small bathroom.
The selling agents for the boat are River Homes and annual mooring charges amount to £5,600 per year ($7,500, €6,300 or درهم27,400 per year).
