The Series

Traditional waterfront properties are hard to come by and expensive. So families who have dreamed for decades of waking up to an un-spoilt river view or watching the sun set across an ocean are now taking the ultimate plunge and commissioning a waterborne home. 

Build prices range from around £30,000 for a one bed floating ‘flat’ in a converted barge, to a $1 million dollar aquatic mansion complete with hot tubs. From Portland to Seattle, Vancouver to the Netherlands, from the English south coast to the River Thames in London – our floating homes will show the wide range of places you can build and live in on the water with your very own bespoke home.
