Views of the Louvre, Eiffel tower and riverbank are on show from this restored Parisian barge, moored on the banks of the Seine and available for €980,000 via Espaces Atypiques.
The two-bedroom houseboat has a riveted steel hull and is set across two levels – including an upper terrace and a vast skylit living room and kitchen. Brass rimmed portal windows, white-washed timber slats and a wood-burning stove set the tone for the serene floating home.
Built-in cabinetry and contemporary ribbed timber furniture hone the 51-ft-long barge’s modernist vibe, complemented by parquet and tiled floors.
Sleeping areas are at the front of the Paris property, including the master en-suite bedroom. A third could be created inside the engine block, which currently houses the boat’s GM engine which is in good working order.
