Nova Cura is a beautiful 21m early 20th century Dutch barge that has been extensively renovated in the last few years, she is offered on a fully transferable residential mooring in Canary Wharf.


You enter from the super large back deck through an old wooden hatch into a large bright open plan kitchen/living room with hardwood floor throughout. The kitchen itself has a very modern feel with lots of work space and all the mod cons you’d expect; fridge freezer, large electric oven and hob, a washer/dryer and plenty of storage. This then leads you nicely into the spacious living room with space enough for a big sofa, tv, excellent modern fireplace and even a dining area as well, from there you’re led down a long corridor boasting storage all down the way down its side at at the end is a comfortable work space with desk and chair. Coming off the corridor is the main bedroom with plenty of space for a king sized bed as well as lots of storage, next to this is the large shower room and toilet which was completely refitted only 2 years ago, at the bottom of the corridor is the second bedroom and once again a lot more storage.


She is perfect accommodation for anyone seeking a new home in a prime London location. She is currently moored in the amazing surroundings of Poplar Dock Marina in the historical West India Docks - Canary Wharf, on fully transferable mooring, subject to transfer fee and local mooring costs. The mooring benefits from a remarkable community and a large community BBQ area with loungers and is protected from all the elements. Separate toilet/shower facility with laundry room and Elsan, all of which are free to use as is the pump out. Car parking spaces are available on site at cost.
