Houthaven is a successful urban development, a new neighborhood with 7 islands and fabulous canals. The neighborhood is almost finished. And it is close to everything that makes Amsterdam so appealing, including Jordaan, the canals and Westerpark. Nearby countless cafés, restaurants, the theater etc. The municipality is building 5 padel courts out front. The property is also close to Central Station, A10 and Schiphol.
The penthouse has a super-smart, single-level layout. Open up the entire space for the ultimate Sunday-morning vibe, or close off the separate spaces for a little more privacy. Please see the brochure and floorplan.
Another absolute advantage is the level of security. The reinforced door. Parking in the garage with direct elevator access to your own apartment. The complex, with 25 homes, is a wonderful, tight-knit community of neighbors: families, celebrities, senior citizens, expats and young professionals.
High-end finishes always make our hearts skip a beat. Everything here is new and energy-efficient: we have our own solar panels on the roof, the highest energy-efficiency rating and low utility bills.
The downside: The building and Houthavens itself was under construction these past years. That led to noise. The good news is that that's now a thing of the past. One last point is our building's central entrance. Not the best calling card, but that is also due to change, because the HOA has appointed a project group to give the entrance a make-over.
It truly pains us to sell this home. We recently purchased an avocado farm in Spain and intend to move there for the next few years. But to be perfectly honest: we go back and forth on the decision almost every day. One this is certain: the new owners will enjoy every minute in this unique piece of paradise.
This apartment offers the ultimate urban combination: situated in one of the most sought-after areas close to the inner city, yet exuding a serene tranquility and sense of space. Parking in the garage and immediate elevator access to the penthouse floor. Unsurpassable security.
The apartment building is in a central location in the beautifully designed Houthaven urban development, surrounded by water, in a leafy setting with robust and varied architecture. This low-traffic location is in immediate proximity of everything that makes Amsterdam so appealing: a mere stone's throw from the world-famous historic canal belt, Jordaan Quarter and Westerpark and trendy Spaarndammerstraat. Nearby countless cafes, restaurants and fabulous boutiques. The neighborhood itself is family-friendly, with several schools and playgrounds to choose from. Central Station is also close-by, with unlimited tram and bus connections. Nearby the A10 beltway and Schiphol Airport.
The municipality is planning to realize 5 padel-courts out front of the property (bend Danzigerbocht 5).
