Amazing PENTHOUSE with two-storey high windows and lots of light. Beautiful views of the boats on the IJ, the NDSM, Houthavens and Pontsteiger districts and the towers of the old city.
Live on top of the world. With Amsterdam at your feet.
This penthouse in brand-new high-end development Loft4you is located on the sixth floor, with an internal mezzanine floor. That gives the main living area a 5.4-metre high ceiling. The first floor of the complex is also double height, making its sixth floor and mezzanine equivalent to a conventional seventh and eighth floor. Naturally, there is lift access to the penthouse.
A southwest-facing roof terrace fronted by an uninterrupted glass balustrade wraps around the apartment on two sides. The terrace is about 7.5 metres long on one side, 14 metres on the other and 1.8 metres deep throughout, providing a total outdoor area of approximately 40 sq. m.
Finishing to order
Currently approaching completion, this property offers all the advantages of buying off-plan without the usual three-year wait. Only the basic layout has been finalized, leaving you free to create an amazing finished penthouse entirely to your own taste.
The seller has already arranged all the necessary preparatory work for the final phase, such as installing pipes in the concrete floor for underfloor heating and cooling, empty wiring conduits in the concrete walls, ventilation ducts, the steel frame of the mezzanine floor and a skylight in the roof.
The price of the property is €550,000, for delivery in shell form. This includes a private space in the ground-floor parking garage. There is also a separate storage room in the basement.
The buyer, therefore, needs to take into account the costs required for completion. A realistic estimate for these is about €60,000. That will cover the basic finishing, excluding the kitchen, wall finish (plastering/painting) and flooring (parquet/poured floor, etc.). For approximately €100,000 in all, the apartment can be fitted out beautifully to your own standard and taste. A keen DIY enthusiast could well spend significantly less!
Entrance; hall with large cloakroom; utility room with connections for a washing machine; guest toilet with hot-water connection; open kitchen and living room measuring roughly 12 x 6 metres; large sliding doors to terrace, facing southwest; open staircase from living room to mezzanine floor, with upstairs landing, separate toilet and cupboard with utilities.
For the mezzanine, you have two layout options: either one large bedroom of roughly 6 x 3 metres and a bathroom with walk-in closet featuring a skylight or two bedrooms (approximately 3 x 3.5 metres and 2.5 x 3.5 metres, respectively) with bathroom. The mezzanine floor also has large sliding doors opening onto a Juliet balcony.
Loft4you is a new small-scale residential development on Ridderspoorweg, at the corner of Papaverweg, being built in close consultation with the buyers. This group of pioneers has designed its dream housing block in collaboration with the architect, resulting in a strong, substantial building with an industrial feel. This penthouse has come onto the market due to a change in the seller’s personal circumstances.
I love Noord. And Noord is the place to be.
Loft4you is situated in Buiksloterham, between the Overhoeks cultural district on one side and the creative NDSM neighbourhood on the other. And close to both the down-to-earth Bloemenbuurt and charming Buiksloterdijk. This is Amsterdam-Noord at its best: a place to experience the best of both worlds.
The waters of the IJ, the trendy NDSM-werf, new shopping experience Banne Centrum, Noorderpark swimming pool, the recently regenerated Van der Pekstraat and its market, the upgraded Mosplein with all kinds of new shops and the retail heart of Noord, shopping centre Boven ’t IJ, are all within easy reach. As are a wide range of dining and drinking options, from cosy traditional pubs to trendy bars with waterside terraces. The strength is in the mix.
For families, Amsterdam-Noord has 31 primary schools (many with reception classes) and ten secondary schools, plus a wide range of after-school and nursery provision. There are also 60 active sports clubs in the area, nine parks, seven shopping centres, two markets and one brand-new swimming complex, with indoor and outdoor pools.
The nearby ferries take you in a few minutes from Buiksloterweg to Central Station (24 hours a day) or from Distelweg to Westerdoksdijk.
This is a brand-new home in a perfect location. If you are looking for somewhere truly unique, not just another run-of-the-mill flat, then you have found the right place.
