A luxurious houseboat moored in London's swanky Canary Wharf -  where two-bed living accommodation is typically priced around £1.6 million - has gone on the market for £365,000. 

Although the stunning two double bedroom houseboat is just a fraction of the normal asking price of properties in the area, it offers 982 square feet of lavish living space and is situated in secure gated moorings in Poplar Dock Marina.

Elspeth Mabel, which was originally a working barge on the Yorkshire Waterways before being transformed, has a sleek modern interior, decked terrace as well as a contemporary bathroom with access to the engine room, utility room and upper deck wheelhouse.

Although the boat comes at a lower price compared to the homes that surround it, mooring fees cost an additional £1,083 a month. This should be weighed up against the lofty service charges tied to most apartment blocks.

It comprises a spacious open-plan reception room and kitchen with a range of integrated appliances.

There is a master bedroom with two skylights, an additional bedroom with fitted wardrobes and a gorgeous black and white tiled bathroom.

French doors lead to a delightful decked terrace, providing an ideal space for dining and entertaining.

Poplar Marina Dock is in a fantastic location close to a wealth of shops, bars and restaurants on Canary Wharf.
