Situated on the shores of England’s River Thames, close to the Hampton Court Palace, this floating home completed by MAA Architects sits on a beautiful one-acre property. Landscaped gardens, a rare freehold mooring (125 ft river frontage), a garage and summerhouse are just some of the features of this contemporary boathouse. A modern bridge road provides access to the home on Tagg’s Island, a bohemian retreat of peace and wildlife, just one hour away from the vibrant core of London.
The layout of the residence was planned on two levels. The bottom floor welcomes visitors with a reception hall, continued to the left with an art gallery and to the right with an open plan kitchen and dining space connected to the outdoor deck. According to the official description of the project, “steps lead up from the hall to the first floor which is largely taken up with a spectacular living space. This room features floor to ceiling glass on both sides – giving wonderful river and garden views – and a suspended wood burning fireplace.” It is here that three bedrooms and also located, with three large terraces that offer extensive river views.
