In pursuit of our dream of a life on board a narrowboat we are selling our 3 bedroom semi-detched house in Dursley, Gloucestershire and the latest step in our marketing campaign is that we are holding an Open House day on Saturday 11th July, 2009.
It’s a well built 1960s semi and it’s chain free! Because we will be moving onto a boat the majority of the furniture & appliances will be available by negotiation making an ideal option for first time buyers or investors wanting to ‘buy to rent’.
Prospective buyers are invited to contact us or our Estate Agents, Bennett Jones to make an appointment and we will be accepting offers from people who are in a position to proceed with the purchase within a very short space of time.
We have been very busy these last weeks trying to make our house look presentable for prospective buyers. Last week’s job was giving the kitchen a make-over, new oak doored wall cupboards, ivory base units and beech-look work surfaces, très chic :).
We thought we were going to have the long weekend to do it but the estate agent wanted to bring some people for a viewing at 10am Saturday so the whole process had to be accelerated somewhat!
So… to reward ourselves for all this hard work we took of to Bradford on Avon today to check out day boat hire which we are thinking of organising for our church community group, so we paid a visit to Sally Boats based at the marina. I think they have had a tough time lately but seem to be back on track now and we wish them prosperous season, and if we can help by bringing our friends there so much the better.
After visiting them and having a beer and a light lunch on the sun deck of the adjacent Beef & Barge pub we ventured back down the towpath towards the town and did a little obligatory gongoozling at Bradford Lock 14.
