You can taste the life aquatic with this modern houseboat in Copenhagen’s Teglholmen harbour.
The surprisingly spacious 140 sq m property – on the market via Adam Schnack for 5.9m DKK – turns notions of cramped boat living on their head thanks to its lofty ceilings and generous outdoor terraces.
Set over two levels, the houseboat unfurls like a treehouse with a large living room on the lower floor, complete with a modern wood burning stove, parquet flooring and tall glass windows and doors that make the most of its harbour views.
Four rooms branch off this voluminous space, one of which is currently used as a laundry room. Built-in cabinetry squeezes extra square footage out of the houseboat’s floor plan.
Stairs lead to the kitchen and dining area, and the upper deck, which is furnished as a sun terrace with an outdoor kitchen.
The boat stretches to 21.3 metres long and is currently configured as a two-bedroom bolthole. The Copenhagen property also has a basement level running the length of the ground floor area.
