This elegant but dilapidated Victorian boathouse comes with a hefty price tag of £2m thanks to its prime riverside location on the Thames.
The Grade II* listed property has only 782sq ft of living space but comes with 117ft of idyllic river frontage and a slipway big enough for two sizable boats.
Velma is in a 0.33-acre plot, so there is plenty of space on site to build a stunning riverside home, but it would be a risky purchase for the new owner as it does not currently have any planning permission in place.
The boathouse was built in about 1884 for Doctor John Langdon Down, the man who first discovered and developed treatments for Down's Syndrome.
