The Boatman’s Institute is a wonderful, newly renovated historic property near the Paddington Basin in London W2. The house dates back to 1827 and was originally built as somewhere for worship and learning for the boatmen operating the long boats around the Paddington Basin. An extensive program of refurbishment and modernisation has resulted in a very modern, light family home which retains many of its original features.

Accommodation is over two floors and has an unusual, light-filled, double-vaulted studio reception room, kitchen/breakfast room, a galleried master bedroom suite and two further bedroom suites, plus a study/bedroom four, a media/games room, a wine cellar and a terrace. The house offers over 3,200sq ft of living space.
