Modernist floating home / Taggs Island, Hampton


Not just by the river, with this five-bedroom modernist floating home on Taggs Island, Hampton, Middlesex, you are on it.

Effectively this is a houseboat of sorts, located on a freehold mooring (with 125ft of River Thames frontage) and private grounds of around half an acre. The location seems to be a hip place too — said to be home to successful artists, writers and musicians, according to the agent, offering a secluded location with all the essential amenities for everyday existence (gas, water etc).

Away from the modernist property is the land, which is secluded and beautifully planted, throwing in off street parking for five cars, two access driveways, garage/workshop, summerhouse, outbuildings, slipway and the potential to moor motorboats around the perimeter of the houseboat itself.

If it’s your dream home, you’ll need around £1,800,000 to secure it — via WowHaus
