Layout (see floorplans)
Ground & First Floor
Entrance on the ground floor, large open and garden-oriented living / dining kitchen. The space and light here are phenomenal with a ceiling height of 7.5 meters (!) with the living room on the first floor 'floating' in this height. Due to the open connections, there is always contact between the garden-oriented kitchen and the attractive living room on the first floor. There are no transverse walls on these two floors, which means that the entire space can be experienced. Special materials have also been used; the bottom of the floating island is finished with used patinated copper plates from a former church. Two struts at the front and rear provide stability. These braces originate at the rear of the Central Station, where many 100-year-old Basralocus mooring posts have been removed for the new bus station. A new-build house with history.
Spacious landing, storage room with washing machine connections and separate toilet can be found centrally on this floor. Two spacious bedrooms on either side and a bathroom with bath, sink and natural light.
Third floor & roof terrace
From the hall you reach the master bedroom with spacious walk-in closet and bathroom en suite with natural light, sunken bath and walk-in shower. At the front, the room has been left open, but here you can easily create one or even two rooms. You reach the landing and the roof terrace via the fixed staircase. From here you have an amazing view over the Steigereiland towards the city and over the Diemerpark and IJmeer.
The house is located in the spacious and child-friendly district of IJburg, on Steigereiland-Zuid. This island is characterized by its innovative and versatile architecture. Het Steigereiland has all the necessary facilities; a large primary school around the corner (Montessori), various nurseries, a large general practice, local shops, dentists and a hairdresser.
The larger Haveneiland has various primary schools, the IJburg College (VWO, HAVO and VMBO), a health center and various childcare centers. The shopping center with its traditional fresh food stores, a large Albert Heijn, Vomar and DEEN, HEMA, nice restaurants, trendy cafes, and Lolaland city beach.
The Haveneiland borders the banks of the Rieteilanden and the Diemerpark, where you can jog, skate and cycle (beautiful cycling routes to, among others, Muiden, nature boulevard). The park has its own beach and a football and hockey club. You can play tennis on Rieteiland Oost. Due to the many surrounding water and the navigable canals, IJburg has a maritime appearance with the port and its water sports association as the centerpiece. IJburg, and in particular Steigereiland, is located directly on the A10, exit S114. Various roads (A4 and A9) are easily accessible, this also applies to Schiphol Airport. Tram line 26 takes you from IJburg to Central Station in about twelve minutes. Bus 66 runs to the Arena in 15 minutes. Steigereiland Zuid is very conveniently located for the city center and the Ring. In just 5 minutes you are on the Ring by car and you cycle to the center in 20 minutes.
The house is located on municipal leasehold land, the current annual canon/lease is € 3,174.16 and is indexed per 10 years (AB2000), which is tax deductible. The current term runs until mid 2056. Sellers have applied for a switch to perpetual leasehold under the favorable conditions.
Energy and sustainability
Living in a modern house is often very beneficial in terms of your energy consumption, but here the architect has just gone a step further. The house is very energy efficient and has large south-facing windows with fixed and variable sun blinds. The windows heat up the house strongly in winter. There is also a low temperature underfloor heating, a shower with a water recovery system (WTW) and CO2-controlled ventilation. The house's EPC is 0.7. Hot tap water comes from a solar boiler. The remaining energy demand is delivered by district heating.
