Unique and exclusive living in an excellent, highly sought after location, namely an island in the river Zaan ('Het Eiland')? You will love this exceptional and high-quality mansion with its quirky architecture. The house is located at the end of a quiet road, on open water, in a neighborhood with lots of greenery and has its own jetty for a boat on its own land. From the conservatory you have an unobstructed view of the water of the Voorzaan river and all the activities that take place there. Moreover, the bustling center of Zaandam is not far. There you will find a wide selection of shops and supermarkets, cafés and restaurants, the Zaantheater, the cinema and the casino.
Close to home you will also find a daycare center and primary school, a playing field with play equipment for the children and a field where your dog can play. Secondary education is easily accessible by bicycle. Zaandam has many sports clubs that can be reached quickly by bike or by car. You will find the Zaandam's train station less than 10 minutes from the house (by bike or car). Frequent trains depart from to Amsterdam (12 minutes) and Schiphol Airport (18 minutes). The highways A7 and A8 and the A10 ring road are also nearby. You can park your car in front of the home.
Layout: through a spacious canopy you reach the front door. Beautifully tiled entrance in the 'Amsterdamse School' style, with meter box, access to the garage, the shower-toilet (Geberit, aqua clean) with sink, the living room with open kitchen and the stairs to the first floor. When you enter the living room you will immediately notice the space and the fantastic incidence of light. In addition, the spacious windows offer a direct view of the terrace with a view of the Voorzaan river. The variable ridge height and the vide certainly contribute to the perception of space. At the rear of the living room you have access to the terrace through sliding doors in the living room and the conservatory.
The ceiling and walls of the living room are neatly finished. The entire floor on the ground floor has hard natural stone tiles, which require little maintenance. Two radiators (one in the kitchen and one in the living room) combined with the underfloor heating ensure a pleasant temperature. In addition, there is an inset wood stove (brand: Dik Geurts) that provides cosiness and extra warmth. The stove is hardly harmful to the environment, provided the right wood is used. The living room has a fixed wall unit, a storage closet under the stairs and an extra kitchencloset.
The luxury kitchen in a double arrangement can be found at the front of the house and is in open connection with the living room. The kitchen (Bruynzeel) has a close-in boiler (Inventum), a dishwasher (Atag), an oven (Neff), an induction cooker (Atag), a fridge (Atag) and an extractor hood (Bruynzeel). The kitchen has white fronts and a dark counter top. In the extension of the cooking area there is room for a spacious dining table. Here too, a lot of daylight enters through large windows.
First floor: via the stairs you reach the landing of the first floor. Here you will find three bedrooms, the bathroom, the laundry room and the stairs to the second floor. There is an extra sleeping place on the mezzanine, because a folding bed has been incorporated in the wall unit. The bedroom with vide can be used as a home office. You will find a fixed desk here with a length of seven meters and lots of storage space. This space is closed with double doors. There is one bedroom with a balcony at the front of the house and the second bedroom is situated at the rear. Both rooms have fixed closets. The spacious bathroom is centrally located and has beautiful tiling in a white/orange/black color scheme. Here you will find a walk-in shower, a wall-mounted toilet, a washbasin with cupboards with mirrors and lighting and recessed spotlights. Next to the bathroom you will find a separate, closed laundry room with the connections for washing machine and dryer. The entire floor is perfectly finished and there is marmoleum flooring.
Second floor: via a fixed staircase you reach the second floor. Here you will find the third bedroom. This bedroom has its own bathroom with shower and sink with mirror. Laminate is on the floor. Behind the bedroom there is extra storage space where the central heating system and the inverter for the solar panels can be found.
The house has a garage that can be reached indoors from the entrance. This is now used as a storage room, but can of course also serve as a practice room or workspace/studio.

There is electricity on the terrace (double surface-mounted socket + recessed wall socket for a terrace lamp) as wall as an outside tap.
