You can also rent a parking space in the Werfgarage (subject to waiting list).
The apartment is located on the first floor and can be accessed by lift. This is a wonderful property thanks to its high location and uninterrupted view. You reach the apartment via the immaculate staircase or by lift. As you enter, there is a long foyer with central heating cupboard (Intergas high-efficiency central heating boiler, 2018), separate toilet with hand basin, staircase to the floor where the bedrooms are, staircase cupboard and two useful built-in wardrobes/cupboards.
The luxury kitchen is to the front of the home and fitted with a five-burner gas hob, oven, refrigerator, freezer and extractor hood (and connection for your dishwasher).
To the rear of the apartment, you will find the spacious living room with French doors leading to the garden. The large windows across the entire width allow a lot of natural daylight to enter. The living room leads to the sunny garden (35 sq. m. in total), which faces south-east.
Second floor: landing with access to all rooms. Large bedroom (3.16 x 4.91) at the front featuring a useful working area (potential for conversion into two bedrooms) and two further bedrooms (4.32 x 2.74 and 4.32 x 2.10) at the rear of the property.

The communal courtyard garden is the perfect place for your children to play safely. The courtyard garden features its own playground equipment and there are several parks, a basketball court and playgrounds outside the complex.
The current owners have a boat, with mooring on the Kattenburgergracht behind the complex, that can be acquired. If you already have a boat, there are plenty of places available and you can access the canals from this former harbour area.
The apartment is located in the Groot Kattenburg complex on the Eastern Islands, in the Centrum city district and on the edge of Amsterdam city centre. The area is steeped in history and is home to the Marineterrein docklands, the former Stork machine factory, De Molen windmill and the Dutch National Maritime Museum. It is also rapidly developing: the docklands area is undergoing further development and the Islands Boulevard plan has been implemented, making this an even greener place to live and enjoy the great outdoors.
