Sixhavenweg 25 1021 HG Amsterdam
WELL-MAINTAINED AND EXCEPTIONALLY BRIGHT WATER VILLA/HOUSEBOAT OF 192 M2 (GFA 217 M2), DIVIDED OVER TWO FLOORS, OFFERING THREE BEDROOMS AND TWO BATHROOMS ON THE LOWER FLOOR, A SPACIOUS LIVING ROOM AND LUXURY KITCHEN ON THE GROUND FLOOR, A SOUTHWEST-FACING TERRACE AT THE FRONT. LOCATED IN A UNIQUE SPOT WITH UNOBSTRUCTED VIEWS ACROSS THE IJ TOWARD THE CENTRAL STATION.
This stunning and unique water villa/houseboat, named “De Verandering”, was constructed in 2007 with a concrete shell and finished with premium and sustainable materials. The current owners made some changes in 2014, such as the beautiful, wooden (sliding) shutters at the front and sides of the property, and the robust, black steel railings with wooden bannisters and the wooden window and door frames, which all give the houseboat an industrial yet warm look and feel.
The plot of land on the shore is municipal land with the usage right granted to the owners. The plot offers two parking spots (with parking frames and a charging station) and a wonderfully sunny orchard from where you enjoy the magnificent views of the IJ.
Entrance via the terrace and indoor landing. Inside, looking from the mezzanine and through the high windows at the back, you will be struck by the amazing views of the Sixhaven.
To the right is the luxury kitchen-diner, which offers an island with a Siemens induction hob plus a matching extraction hood. The units positioned by the window include various built-in appliances like a dishwasher, a fridge, a steam oven, and a climatised wine cabinet. The windows in the kitchen overlook the harbour at the back. Three of the four large windows at the front are sliding windows. Adjacent to the kitchen are a cloak area and the toilet with a washstand.
To the left of the entrance is the light and spacious living room featuring a splendid and bespoke, hanging Bathyscafocus fireplace. Here, the three large windows (two sliding windows) offer gorgeous views of the orchard/shore plot that the owners are allowed to use.
The concrete/cement flooring includes underfloor heating.
Back on the mezzanine, a wooden staircase leads to the downstairs sleeping quarters. This floor is entirely finished with beautiful teak flooring originating from the Beurs van Berlage. There are two spacious bedrooms and a third room, which is currently used as an office and has partially glass walls. One of the bedrooms comes with an en-suite bathroom featuring a bath surrounded by wooden casing, a toilet, a walk-in shower, a double washbasin, underfloor heating, and a design radiator. The second bathroom is accessed from the hallway and includes a toilet, a washbasin, a design radiator, and a walk-in shower. The hallway also gives access to a small pantry and a separate space with the central heating unit plus the white goods connections. The raised floor downstairs gets lots of natural light and also offers wonderful views of the water. The bathrooms have underfloor heating and the bedrooms/office include radiators.
On both sides of the water villa is enough space to moor a boat. To the left is a detached and slightly elevated shed (12 m2), which can act as a boathouse as it includes a hatch.
Lastly, the roof already includes 10 solar panels (with space to add 10 more), meaning that the electricity bill can be zero based on normal use.
The plot (municipal property) includes two parking spots right in front of the villa, with parking frames and a charging station. This means there is no need to apply for a parking permit.
