Are you looking for a new-build home in the Houthavens area, but don't want to wait for building work to be finished? We have just the property for you! This newly-completed penthouse has over 140 sq. m. of floorspace, including a parking space. The home is on the top floor and is accessible by lift. The property includes an amazing 34 sq. m. terrace (next to the living room) that gets a lot of sun. This is a beautifully light home, more than 12 metres wide, situated in a great residential area that is enjoying significant development and where you can benefit from green areas and nearby water. All this within walking distance of the IJ river and the Spaarndammerbuurt, and within cycling distance of the Jordaan and Central Station!
The Houthavens is Amsterdam's premier residential location. This residential area maintains the robust character of the Havens area, with hot spots such as REM island and Pont 13. The first residents have been living in their homes for a few years now; the neighbourhood is really coming to life and has a lot more potential waiting to be unlocked. A broad waterway will soon be dug on the terrace side of the home, and at the front there will shortly be a wide green area running all the way to the Houthaven Park.
Within 500 metres of the home there is a school building housing a nursery, as well as two primary schools, and the 4e Gymnasium grammar school is just around the corner.
The Spaarndammerdijk has been rerouted through the new Spaarndammertunnel, making the Houthavens a lovely quiet place to live. The Houthaven Park is also being landscaped above the tunnel. You will be able to walk straight out of your home, across the green space, through the Houthaven Park and into the Spaarndammerbuurt. In that neighbourhood you will find everything you could wish for in Amsterdam: the newest BAUT restaurant, Café De Walvis, Bar Mick, Restaurant DopHert, Brasserie Van Noordt and De Pizzabakkers. The Albert Heijn supermarket is a five-minute walk away, with a Jumbo a little further away. At the end of the Spaarndammerstraat, there is also the Westerpark.
You enter the building from the broad pavement, and have a choice of taking the lift or the stairs to enter this property on the fourth floor. Since the penthouse covers the entire fourth floor, you won't get any inconvenience from neighbours. The hall gives access to all rooms. The living room runs from the front to the rear, covering the full width (over 12 metres) on the terrace side, with three patio doors opening onto the terrace itself. This 34 sq. m. terrace is a delightful spot where you can soak up the sun in peace and privacy. Soon, once the waterway has been dug on the terrace side, the home will also enjoy a waterside location. The kitchen connections have been fitted in the middle of the living room, so you can decide for yourself whether you want to have your living room or your open-plan kitchen on the terrace side. The hall provides access to a separate toilet with wash basin, together with a spacious storage area which also houses all the technical installations such as the meter cupboard, under-floor heating distributor, district heating, solar panel unit, CO2 extractor system and connections for a washing machine and a dryer. The master bedroom is located to the front of the property and is more than 15 sq. m. in size. The second bedroom is also 15 sq. m. and has a spacious en-suite bathroom equipped with a bath, a walk-in shower, a toilet and a double sink. The second bathroom is accessible from the hall and offers a wash basin and shower. The original layout includes a third bedroom to the rear; this area currently forms part of the living room but could easily be transformed into a third bedroom.
The designers also took additional work into consideration, incorporating a handy Vormotica system that allows you to control your home's lighting from your smartphone, multiple hollow cable ducts, a WiFi amplifier with the potential to connect directly to the fibre-optic network, extra ceiling light outlets, extra wall sockets and electric blinds to the front of the property.
You can gain access to the parking garage by either the lift or the stairs. Level -2 houses a roughly 8 sq. m. storage area with electrical connection. The parking space with extra storage is located on level -1. This storage space is about 12 sq. m. The parking space is available to purchase separately for €55,000.
