3 bedrooms; £399,950 via Aucoot
Formerly a coal barge, Liverpool 91 is being sold with tidal mooring in Gosport and has been overhauled by its owners who’ve rebuilt the 1940s barge from the hull up. Interiors are whitewashed to maximise the feeling of space and reclaimed floorboards sourced from a Victorian school in Portsmouth are laid throughout the floating home. It has a number of portholes and windows but the rooftop deck – built using timber from a water tower – is the best place to drink in those water views.
