Located in London’s very swanky Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, Cheyne Walk – a street described as London’s billionaire’s row – is just a stones throw from the grandeur of the River Thames, in fact its entrance is practically on the water.

That’s where a houseboat is currently moored. And that houseboat could be yours for a very reasonable £1.5 million ($2.2 million).

Named the Joseph Conrad, the 30 meter long former Dutch shipping barge has 2,000 square feet of space and an interior to rival many a luxury apartment.

According to the listing the barge was originally converted in the 1970s and was subsequently the subject of a complete and extremely extensive refurbishment around four years ago.

It’s now holds a 50-foot-long open plan kitchen, and dining and living rooms complete with floor to ceiling (or should that be deck to roof?) windows. There’s also two large bedrooms, three tiled bathrooms and even a study. Sonos speakers are in every room plus a state-of-the-art John Cullen-designed lighting system.

And of course, we suspect, its river views are to die for.
