What was once the site of Oostpoort’s old gas factory has been completely transformed into a desirable place to live with shops, sports facilities, restaurants and bars. Now you too can be a part of this much sought-after area.
Imagine living in your own 4-room penthouse located on the waterfront with a fantastic view on both sides of the Ringvaart, the former boundary between Amsterdam and Watergraafsmeer. Light and airy, it’s surrounded by tall windows on the south, east, and west sides.
The apartment covers an area of 111m2. On the south side there is a cantilevered balcony with a view over the lower Watergraafsmeer. On the west side is a sheltered roof terrace of 36m2. The apartment also comes with its own covered private parking space, a storeroom, and a shared covered bicycle shed.
One of the features that makes this apartment so special is its high-rise ceiling which ascends from 3.30 m to 6 m to create a huge sense of space. The height also allows for the possibility of opening up the attic to the living room to create an extra space for a bedroom or study of approximately 11m2.
The apartment is located on a car-free quayside. Access to your own private parking space is via the entrance to the underground Q-park on the Polderweg. The shared bicycle-shed and private storage are also in the same location.
This apartment in the new Oostpoort district is ideally situated on the quay and has unobstructed views over the water. The Oostpoort shopping center offers a range of shops and cozy restaurants and doing the daily shopping has never been easier. Close by are the specialised shops and boutiques of Watergraafsmeer, Linnaeusstraat, and Middenweg.
Also, in the immediate vicinity, you will find the popular restaurants of La Vallade, Elsa’s Café, and Louie Louie.
Sports enthusiasts only have to open the front door of the apartment complex to find Sports World gym. Just a couple of minutes’ walk away is the local swimming pool; and within cycling distance, you will find football, hockey, and tennis courts.
For families with children there are several nurseries and good primary schools in the immediate vicinity. There are also plenty of open spaces where children can play and enjoy the green city.
For those who like to take a stroll in the park, Frankendael and Oosterpark are within walking distance; and in the summer Frankendael hosts a monthly farmer’s market selling organic produce
Ground floor: entrance hall, intercom with camera, and elevator
Fourth floor: gallery overlooking atrium with courtyard. Private entrance hall of 6 m high, and corridor which gives access to all rooms. On the quiet north side there are three bedrooms with large windows for optimal daylight. Two bedrooms have a high-rise ceiling, one of which has access to the roof terrace. The luxurious bathroom has a sink, bath, shower cabin, and a toilet. There is also a second toilet. There is a washer/dryer connection in the utilities cupboard and space for storage.
The hallway has access to the pull-down ladder to the attic. The living room is very light because of its many windows and offers a beautiful view over the canal and rooftops of Watergraafsmeer.
On the west side of the living room is a large sliding door with access to the spacious roof terrace (approx. 36m2) which runs along the width of the house. It offers sufficient shelter to enjoy the sun outside and breakfast on warm summer Sunday mornings. On the other side of the living room is the half open kitchen which has a sliding door on to a balcony of 9 m2. The balcony is located on the south and offers from where you can enjoy amazing skies, and views of the Ringvaart and Linnaeuskade on the other side of the water.
The spacious U-shaped open kitchen comes with an extra wide Boretti oven, 5-burner stove, and an Atag dishwasher. There is room for a large dining table.
Tram 9 to the center of Amsterdam is a stone’s throw away. Muiderpoort Station is just a 10-minute walk -- trains run every few minutes to Amsterdam Centraal, Amstel Station, Science Park, and beyond.
