EXCEPTIONAL RIVERFRONT APARTMENT
"De Europa", the iconic white marble clad building, designed by the world-renowned architect Álvaro Siza, enjoys an exceptional riverfront location along the north bank of the IJ river in Amsterdam.
It is located just a few minutes walking distance from the passenger-ferry service, that connects to Amsterdam Central Station and the centre of Amsterdam. The service operates 24/7 providing unlimited access to the historical centre of Amsterdam and its wealth of cultural and commercial attractions. By car, the A10 ring-road is easily accessed and just 5 minutes away.
The "De Europa" building is situated in the "Overhoeks" city regeneration area of "Amsterdam Noord", a beautiful new residential area, directly opposite Amsterdam Central Station, on the sunny side of the IJ. It is a popular and an upcoming district full of dynamism and creativity and is currently enjoying a large amount of national and international attention. Just a stone's throw away from the building are the "EYE Film Museum", Art College "Amsterdamse Hogeschool voor de Kunsten", “THT" (Tolhuistuin) restaurant, "Paradiso" and "A'DAM Tower" Housing a hotel, restaurants, and a roof-top panoramic terrace.
The "De Europa" building and the apartment itself are very highly appointed and finished. The apartment has a private underground parking space and a separate storage-room in the basement. Furthermore, the apartment-building offers additional resident's facilities such as a beautiful gym (Technogym), 2 saunas and a guest suite for accommodating overnight guests.
The apartment is located on the third floor and is accessed via one of two lifts. The front door to the apartment opens onto a spacious hall offering access to all the rooms. Namely; the very generously sized open plan living and dining room, a half-open kitchen and utility room, 2 bedrooms, a spacious bathroom and separate guest toilet.
What immediately stands out in this beautiful apartment is the large glass frontage, from wall to wall and from floor to ceiling, providing lots of sunlight in the living room and a truly magnificent view over the water of the IJ river to the historic city centre of Amsterdam. Each of the two bedrooms also enjoys the same fabulous views across the IJ. What makes this apartment also stand out, is its spaciousness and its flexibly designed layout. There is a sliding panel dividing the two bedrooms, which allows you to create a very spacious and luxurious master bedroom or two separate bedrooms. There is also a walk in fitted wardrobe.
The luxurious Siematic open -plan kitchen has built-in appliances including an induction hob, cooker hood, dishwasher, oven with built-in microwave, fridge and separate freezer. There is a breakfast bar providing an outlook via the open plan dining living area on to a spacious terrace with views across the river to Amsterdam's historic centre.
