Agent’s wording:A complete 'one-off' opportunity for London's most unique short let.
The Harpy is an Edwardian Customs and Excise Pontoon and was used as the Royal Landing Stage in front of Customs House from 1904 until 1979. It was then aqcuired by the current owners and moved to its existing location, in front of China Wharf, 100 yards from the Design Museum. Two years ago, it was completely refurbished and restored throughout (having been used as offices) to create a wonderful and totally one-off property.
Arranged over two levels, you have your own private gated entrance from the dockside down to the property. There are 2,000sq ft of wrap around terraces on both levels, providing astonishing views.
