Heart of Lightness - Tardis like houseboat on the Thames.<br />
<br />
A houseboat that looks more like a luxurious penthouse suite inside has gone on the market for a whopping £1.5 million - because it's in one of London's most exclusive locations.<br />
<br />
The 100ft vessel was once a former Dutch barge taking supplies up and down the Thames until it was retired from service in the 1960s and left to rot.<br />
<br />
But a decade later it was salvaged and turned into a houseboat before undergoing a complete refurbishment four years ago and moved to a premier mooring alongside one the swankiest addresses in the city.<br />
<br />
The plush houseboat, berthed at the entrance to Cheyne Walk, now boasts a lavish living room, stylish 50ft-long kitchen, a spiral staircase, two opulent bedrooms, three bathrooms and even a sun terrace.<br />
<br />
And despite its eye-watering £1.5m asking price, experts at Riverhomes estate agents say the houseboat is actually a bargain and that anyone wanting to live in such luxury in the heart of Chelsea would have to shell out many millions more.
