Hot houseboat

I used to have a boyfriend who lived on a houseboat for a while. It was damp, pokey, rocky at night, hard to get into after a few drinks – and it smelled of wee. The houseboat below is not it...

This houseboat is hot. Currently moored at Rochester, Kent, it was built from scratch by designer Mike O'Shea and has two double bedrooms, a sun deck and a roof garden. And look at all that sexy wood: the walls and open-tread staircase (two floors!) are clad in Finnish beech ply, those worktops are American walnut and, I would guess, that the kitchen units are Ikea's, sadly now discontinued, Nexus golden brown.

The houseboat is for sale through The Modern House for £135,000, and it costs around £200 per month in mooring fees and upkeep.
