Is it a house? Is it a boat? Well commuters saw a bit of both when they spotted this building floating down the River Thames. Airbnb’s latest London listing is a fully-functioning Floating House, and can be seen passing under Tower Bridge before gliding past the Houses of Parliament and the London Eye on its maiden voyage. The home has two bedrooms, a living room, working bathroom and even a garden complete with real grass, a doghouse and an apple tree. Sitting at an imposing eight metres tall and weighing in at 70 tonnes, the Floating House will provide guests with unparalleled views of the city, as it takes in London riverside landmarks on its journey down the Thames.
Crossing local neighbourhoods such as Chelsea, Westminster and Canary Wharf, the house will hold community events and overnight stays before opening its doors to one lucky winner and three guests.
