Luxury loft corner apartment in the desirable Patch22, with stunning views of Amsterdam’s historic city centre and harbour, in a dynamic new and sustainable area to the north of Central Station. It simply has to be seen.
This very spacious apartment, with a floor area of 86.5 sq. m., has two bedrooms, an enormous loggia with fabulous views, a 13.7 sq. m. mezzanine, as well as a storage area that includes a workshop/studio of 18.4 sq. m. on the first floor. It also comes with its own parking space in the car park that forms part of the complex. Patch22 is a sustainable and energy neutral building, designed by architect Tom Frantzen. The building has won various international architecture prizes.
This outstanding property commands wonderful panoramic views of the Amsterdam Tower, the historic city centre, the Pontsteiger building, and much more. From the fifth floor, you can see the boulevard, the quayside, the 100-metre wide Johan van Hasseltkanaal, and across the River IJ.
A major feature of this apartment is the large south-west facing loggia, which extends across its entire width. The loggia accounts for an extra 18 sq. m. of living space. It can be closed off using a special system of high-quality sliding windows. The high ceilings - 3.47 metres - also help enhance the generous dimensions of this loft space.
Near the centre and the Amsterdam canal belt, plus I love Noord! Its strength lies in its proximity to all these areas. For those who were not yet aware of the fact, Noord is hip and happening, as indeed it has been for some years now.
Buiksloterham lies between the cultural Overhoeks area on the one side, including the EYE museum and cinema and the creative NDSM terrain, and the IJhallen on the other. The Bloemenbuurt district and the charming Buiksloterdijk are close by too. This is Amsterdam Noord at its best; here, you can experience the best of both worlds. A four-minute cycle ride, a quick crossing on the ferry, and you are in the centre of Amsterdam. And with the opening of the North-South Line in July 2018, connections with the rest of Amsterdam will open up as never before. The Noorderpark Station is but a short walk away, from where you can reach Central Station in four minutes, and the Zuid/De Zuidas Station in just seventeen minutes (from July 2018).
The apartment’s location provides the best possible views of changing weather patterns and wind movements; it is situated right on the water, overlooking the River IJ. You can moor your boat almost at your front door. Other local features are the recently modernized Mosplein shopping area, the Noorderparkbad swimming pool, and Van der Pekstraat, with its market and many types of special shops and stylish restaurants. More and more amenities are set to appear in the immediate vicinity of the property too, including some great bars and restaurants.
A new-build home, at exactly the right location. If you are looking for more than just a standard new build, then this unique apartment, designed by specialist architects, is ideal for you.
It is truly contemporary, perfect for any buyer wishing to acquire a sustainable and luxury home that will meet all their living needs, now and in the future.
Naturally, there is a large lift in the building.
This is a very modern building, with the latest environmentally-friendly energy and other amenities, including:
- Biomass heating, using a pellet stove on the ground floor (for heating the floors and for the hot water), together with heat pipes.
-350 solar panels on the roof for generating electricity. During the month of May, more energy was generated than was consumed.
- Captured rainwater is used for flushing the toilets.
- CO2 controlled ventilation (you use the ventilation only when it’s needed) through a heat recovery system.
This can also have a very favourable effect on your mortgage interest rate.
The work of a well-known artist now adorns the walls of the common entrance area. The neat and tidy entrance area leads to the spacious lift.
There is a bicycle storage space on the interior part of the ground floor of the complex, which is also where the private parking spaces are located. On the first floor is the studio of approximately 7 x 2 metres in area, with an additional storage space of 5 sq. m.
Upon entering the apartment on the fifth floor, you are sure to be immediately struck by the expansive and spectacular views. The front of the building is almost entirely made of glass, and even more light is admitted thanks to the high side windows.
The living room is nine metres across. There is an open kitchen with a cooking island and a breakfast bar, fitted with every conceivable top-quality appliance (Miele, Gaggenau, Siemens).
The two bedrooms are located at the side wall. There is also the option of easily creating a third bedroom. The master bedroom and the hall leading to it are fitted with floor-to-ceiling custom-made wardrobes.
The bathroom has a walk-in shower, a sink and a towel radiator. There is a separate toilet and a wash basin. There is also a separate space for a washing machine.
A mezzanine is situated above the bathroom and toilet, with a lounge area and a guest bed.
