Exclusive Waterfront Villa
This luxurious property embodies the best of everything: a permanent sensation of leisure time, maximum living comfort and all the pleasures of Amsterdam’s city life at just a few car minutes. A pearl for those who wish to experience luxurious and tranquil lakeside living, but don’t want to miss out on the vibrant dynamics of metropolitan life. The property is situated, with a spacious 4000m2 plot, on the most beautiful area directly on the largest of the two lakes. Adjacent is a nature reserve. An area with beautiful sigh ts and wildlife. All this at just a 15 minute drive from Amsterdam’s city centre.
Clearly inspired by the Frank Lloyd Wright architecture, sleek silhouettes, geometrical lines and robust materials provide the property with a unique character. The characteristic low pitched roofs with large eaves are covered with the finest slate and trimmed with beautiful zinc. During construction, the owner never compromised with quality and special attention has been paid to detail.
Very contemporary is the unique light coloured and ruggedly shaped brickwork that has been hand laid. These well-chosen materials provide the home with a playful and warm character both during the day and at night. With the panorama lake view, is it only logical that the design spans along the waterfront. Tall doors and tall 4 season glass windows ensure a clear and wide view of the lakes on either side of the home.
The home contains many spacious connected areas – quintessential to the architectural spirit of Wright – in which the architect has managed to maintain privacy and style. There is a comfortable family room with tall monumental ceilings connected to a spacious living with direct access to the marble terraces surrounding the home. The adjoining kitchen is state of the art. Well-structured and equipped with all modern comforts. The ground floor also provides a spacious office, an atelier/second office, a large master bedroom with walk-in closet and a large, extremely comfortable bathroom. On the first floor one finds four additional bedrooms, two with spacious balconies and two additional bathrooms.
It does not come as a surprise that a lot of attention has been paid to the outdoor area of the home and garden. The entire home is surrounded by 480m2 of special marble terraces. The landscaped garden is large and diverse: terraces, sumptuous beds, forest, a large neatly trimmed lawn and a large heated swimming pool with shower. The outdoor area provides two covered lounge/dining areas one of which with a fireplace. In addition, there is a pool house containing a bathroom and changing area.
In a large separate building, matching in the unique Wright style, one encounters a heated garage for multiple cars, hobby area and a spacious boathouse. The electrical doors and boatlift allow one to comfortably enter the boat house by boat and board at any comfortable height. In addition, the boat is always clean and ready to go. Next to the boathouse, there is a surrounded docking area for a second boat. In addition there is a sheltered area for storing gadgets and other watercrafts.
This truly unique property will provide you with a permanent leisure sensation and all that the metropolitan area has to offer. Truly ‘the best of both worlds.’
