Living in the loveliest mansion by the water with all amenities within reach?! A surprisingly beautiful part of IJburg is located on Haveneiland West. A beautiful project has been realised here; “Watermerk”.
In this project we offer you a mansion/ boathouse at the Polygoongracht of approx. 149m2 with private parking on the inner court and separate storage.

The project Watermerk was constructed in 2016 and the final delivery points are being worked on at this moment.
The project consists of 52 mansions at Bert Haanstrakade, Talbotstraat and at Polygoongracht with view on the IJmeer. The house is currently in shell state and still needs to be finished. This gives you the comfort of newly built house, but with quick delivery and the possibility to finish the house the way you prefer.

Communal entrance at the Bert Haanstrakade with doorbell panel. Through an inner court you have access to the enclosed parking area and to the house.
Ground floor: entrance, room, meter box, separate toilet, storage, hall, jetty with private integral jetty for your boat.
First floor: spacious and bright living room with large kitchen which has patio doors leading to the terrace (northeast) with view on the IJmeer. From the living room you have a balcony that overlooks the water (southwest), the Polygoongracht.
Second floor: landing, bedroom at the front. Spacious bathroom with connections for toilet, washstand and shower/bath. Large bedroom at the water side, which you can design according to your own taste! It’s even possible to make 2 bedrooms out of this. Connection point for bath is present. Technical space. Storage featuring washing machine connection. There are 9 solar panels on the roof.
There is also a separate private storage at your disposal.
The boathouse
Is an ideal private accommodation, summer and winter, for a boat you would rather not leave unattended. Beautiful secure berth with a power source nearby. Easy for sailing in and out. Protection against wind, rain and sunshine. The berth is suitable for recreational boats with a length of approx. 6.5 metres. Maximum height is approx. 3 metres. The boat garage can also be closed with an electronic fence to keep out water birds and unwanted guests.

Where wind and water dominate, IJburg consists of four artificially created islands: Steigereiland, Haveneiland, Rieteilanden and Centrumeiland. The latter island has not yet been constructed, but you will find here beach tent Blijburg and the Amsterdam’s city beach with the same name, where sun lovers, trendy locals and free spirits have been going for years now. The islands are connected by bridges and the IJburglaan is the most important street that connects the islands with Zeeburgeiland. In the future this part of Amsterdam will be expanded with another three reclaimed islands. Tram 26 takes you in fifteen minutes from IJburg to the city centre or vice versa. A foot and bicycle bridge for provides a connection to Diemen and Amsterdam-Oost. By car you reach the A10, exit S114, A2 and the A1/A9 within minutes.
The heart of IJburg is a marina with modern restaurants, traditional Dutch taverns and pleasant terraces. The ferry to Forteiland departs from the marina the ferry to Forteiland multiple times a day. Schools (primary schools, nurseries and secondary education) and a library are all nearby. Sports and recreation are right around the corner!
