Haparandaweg 920 - A Amsterdam


WON-DER-FUL, industrial, design penthouse on the 7th and 8th floor in the Houthavens area with a roof garden of 22 sq.m.

Sellers rightly refer to the roof garden as an outdoor living room. Due to its sheltered location, the green roof garden can be used as an extension of the living space for many months during the year.

The apartment offers beautiful views through the high windows on two sides, overlooking the city, the weater of the IJ river and the ports. Light all day, from sunrise on the southeast facade to sunset on the northwest facade.

Few homes have been built in the Houthavens area at this height. And now one is for sale, even with a parking space for a car.

An un-Dutch apartment, which you could also find in New York or Berlin.

Living area of 72 sq.m., the current owner has opted for an open layout. With the large windows, the minimalistic kitchen with floating peninsula, the leather-finished cupboard wall in the living room and lounge above the bathroom with views to two sides, this loft is a dream for lovers of modern architecture.

The staircase from the 7th to the 8th floor, in which a floating workspace has been integrated, is the feat of this penthouse.

This house is located in the Houthavens area, a neighborhood that has rapidly developed into a popular residential area, where trendy bars, delicious restaurants, several primary schools, the 4th Gymnasium and the Houthavenpark have given shape to this new hot spot in Amsterdam.

You not only live here in a bright and comfortable apartment, but also in a home that has been built climate neutral. Sustainability was paramount in the construction.

The Haparandaweg is located near the IJ river, close to the center of Amsterdam. The Haarlemmerstraat and the Jordaan are a few minutes away by bike. From the Houthavenpark you can walk to Spaarndammerbuurt area, where you will find several supermarkets, but also nice cafes and terraces such as Caf De Walvis, Bar Mick and De Pizzaba(k)kers.

The apartment on the 7th floor can be reached via the beautiful communal entrance on the Haparandaweg and the elevator. You can also enter the complex through the communal garden with a gate on the Houthavenkade with a canal.

The front door on the 7th floor leads to the kitchen diner. The wow factor strikes immediately, the high windows, the floating peninsula of the kitchen, the design of the open staircase, the floating workspace and dining table, you will be short of eyes.

One of the doors in the wall of the kitchen cabinets provides access to the separate toilet.

On the facade is a loggia with walls for green plants, which offers indoor or outdoor space, whatever you desire.

The open staircase leads via the loft to the 8th floor. The view here is even more beautiful. Light enters from two sides. The high 4.65 meter high pointed roof and windows are phenomenal. It is difficult to choose whether the view from the living room over the ports or from the bedroom over the city center and the IJ river is more beautiful. Fortunately, you don't have to choose here.

Despite the outspoken design of the house, the owner was able to create tranquility in this penthouse.

The living room and bedroom are separated by a room divider, which offers privacy, but allows light and air to pass through.

The bedroom gives access to the roof garden of 22 m2. Due to its location on the 8th floor, there is also a beautiful view from here over the Houthavens area, the IJ river, the towers of the city center and far beyond. Here you have the feeling that Amsterdam is a big city indeed. The roof garden is partly open and sheltered, which makes this space optimally usable. The mature plants and two trees complete the picture. There are of course connections for water and electricity on the roof terrace.

The bathroom is the room divider between the living room and bedroom. The bathroom id minimalistic in design and equipped with a grey floor and white wall finish, with sink and large (rain) shower.

A lounge (or guest) place has been created above the bathroom, where you have a beautiful view on two sides through the large windows. This space can be reached via a staircase with floating wooden steps.

The walls and ceilings are plastered, the floor has a grey coating (cast floor).

The house is equipped with underfloor heating and cooling. Naturally, the house is gas-free and therefore future-proof. There are five solar panels on the roof, directly linked to your own electricity meter.

There is a large private storage room of 12 m2 (formerly two storage rooms) with a fixed cupboard wall on the ground floor, which is accessible from the building itself or via a private entrance door to the communal courtyard garden to go outside with your bicycle.

In short, an amazing apartment that is unique in the Houthavens area (or even in the Netherlands).
