This is a great family house measuring approximately 170 m with fantastic views of the IJ bay from a sunny well-lit living room on the first floor. This house has a living kitchen on the ground floor, providing access to a sunny garden. There are four spacious bedrooms on the second and third floors, and behind the house is a private parking place, located in an closed-off, child-friendly courtyard. The house is built using eco-friendly techniques with high quality materials, such as insulation in the ground floor, facades and the roof; high efficiency double glazing (HR++), the separation of rainwater and wastewater, district heating and solar panels. The leasehold costs have been bought off until 2065.

The Bert Haanstrakade is located on the water in the Haveneilend West area, between the Steigereiland and the Grote Rieteiland in IJburg. It is a beautiful area with panoramic views over the IJ lake near the hip and popular "Blijburg" beach caf. IJburg provides a diverse number of good quality schools, many shops, a spacious park (Diemerpark), many sports facilities and good public transport links. Amsterdam's centre is only 20 minutes away (tram number 26), and the A-10 Ring Road is easily accessible from exit S114 with links to the A1, A2 and A9 motorways.

The entrance of the house provides direct access to a beautiful room, which can be used at the users own discretion; E.g. as a work or play area, or a fifth bedroom through the placement of an extra wall. Going through a hallway past the staircase leads to a modern living-kitchen, equipped with built-in appliances and providing easy access to the garden. There is also a toilet on the ground floor and a large storage cupboard.

The still-to-be-laid back garden is very large and has a pathway leading to the parking area and a wooden storage shed. Unique to this property is the traffic-free (inner) courtyard, accessible via an automated gate. This is a closed space so only the residents' children can play quietly and above all, safely in this area.

On the first floor is the spacious living room with stunning views over the IJ-lake. The second floor is accessed through an open staircase in the living room, and has two large bedrooms and a spacious bathroom with a walk-in shower, toilet and plumbing for a double washbasin. The third floor has room for 2 spacious bedrooms, and a utility room between the two, with plumbing for a washing machine and dryer. Plumbing for a second bathroom is already present if this is desired.

The layout of this house is ideal for a (large) family.
