Now this is a pontoon fit for a cat that’s been around the world.
The Boseley family upsized their canal home because their cat needed more room.
Now they have a Steber and are moving to Brighton.
Samibella was the name of the 12 metre Prout Escale catamaran which had sailed the world before coming to the Newport canals.
The Samibella at 13 Australia Court before the new pontoon was built.
“We had another canal home but the pontoon was too small for the boat,” Helen Boseley said.
“We moved here, and it was perfect for this pontoon.”
Helen and Brian Boseley are downsizing the boat and the house, moving to Brighton with a seven metre Steber fishing boat that fits on a trailer.
Their four-bedroom canal home at 13 Australia Court, Newport with deep water access to Moreton Bay, is going to auction on November 10.
CHECK OUT THE AUCTIONS PLANNED FOR BRISBANE THIS WEEKEND
There is deep water access to Moreton Bay from this canal home.
But Mrs Boseley is already missing canal living.
“It’s addictive to live on a canal,’’ she said.
“Because my ducks come in the morning and I feed them, and herons used to visit me daily.
“It’s beautiful watching the boats coming up and down the canal.
A lovely place to sit and watch life on the canals.
“Everybody helps everybody else, there are no disputes.
“I think the water keeps you very serene, it just makes everybody happy.”
The couple have lived at Australia Court for 15 years.
This could be your happy place.
The two-level house is on a 702sq m block with a 20.9m canal frontage and its own private pontoon.
The double brick house has a staircase and flooring made from Jarrah hardwood.
Canal breezes flow through every room.
The open-plan living areas lead out to private decks and the canal.
Moor the cat and catch-up with friends in your own bistro-style outdoor area.
The master bedroom has an ensuite and balcony access and there is a second bedroom with an ensuite.
The two main bedrooms have their own ensuites.
“My bedroom looks straight down the canal and always has the sea breezes but I do like the kitchen with the big window overlooking the pool.”
Eat, sleep, sail and repeat at this beautiful Newport address.
