Very nice houseboat in Amsterdam South, with a spacious garden and jetty in front of the door. In this nice houseboat you are surrounded by beautiful and clean water, ideal for sailing or swimming, with a connection to the Nieuwe Meer. Located in the Amsterdamse Bos.
The houseboat is located on a dead-end street with a roundabout at the end, where cars are allowed (the street is not a dead end for cyclists and walkers, entrance Amsterdamse Bos). There is a spacious garden, before you arrive at the houseboat, which gives you a lot of privacy and tranquility.
You enter the hall, where the toilet can be found and the hatch to the large storage room (crawl space) in the basement over the entire surface of the ark. All rooms can be reached via the hall.
The living room is wonderfully light and has French doors to the garden and the (floating) jetty.
The open kitchen is equipped with a dishwasher, induction hob, combi microwave oven and washing machine connection. From the sink area in the kitchen, you have a beautiful view of the water.
There is a silent biomass stove with thermostat (with energy label A+). This can be operated with a remote control. This biomass stove (pallet stove) can heat the entire ark. This is in the living room. Boiler from 2009 for hot water. Silent sewage pump.
The old central heating boiler is in the basement, but is out of order (oil heating), the radiators are still present, so it can be used again. The boiler is oil fired; the tank is still present but can be removed. This can be found behind the shed in a steel building.
There is no gas available. Everything on electricity and biomass/pallet stove.
The houseboat has one bedroom with ceiling light fan. Here is already a large built-in wardrobe with mirrored doors and offers enough space for a double bed.
The recently renovated bathroom can be reached via the bedroom. This is equipped with a spacious walk-in shower, washbasin furniture and towel radiator (this is out of order for now).
This houseboat is located at a very central point of Amsterdam on a beautiful, unique, quiet and clean stretch of water where you can enjoy the summer in the garden or on the water. Supermarkets, restaurants and the hospital (VU Amsterdam) are nearby. Around the corner from the A10 ring road. The houseboat is located in a wide ditch adjacent to De Nieuwe Meer. Sailing through the Amsterdam city is possible, accessible through the lock. Via the Ringvaart you are within half an hour on the Aalsmeerder Poel, in the direction of the Westeinder (Plas). Furthermore, 7 minutes by bike from Gelderlandplein, 15 minutes by bike from Amstelveen shopping center and 15 minutes by bike from Vondelpark towards the center of Amsterdam. Furthermore, the houseboat is located a 5-minute bike ride from South Station (De Zuidas, South WTC), towards Schiphol, Haarlem and Central Station. With a few steps in the Amsterdamse Bos (right outside the garden gate). Perfect location! The garden is leased land from the municipality (approx. € 188). The garden is possible to buy from the municipality (with leasehold), these costs are not yet known. In that case, a company must be established that focuses on water sports. The ark can then be converted to a company ark.
We have enjoyed living in this (family) ark for years, but due to emigration we are going to leave this beautiful place (with a heavy heart) for a new adventure. The place is nice to come home to after a busy day at work. In the summer months you can relax on your floating terrace on the water, enjoying a drink with passing boats. And in the spring, wonderfully chirping birds and nests in the garden. It is a unique oasis of peace in Amsterdam. Walking is also wonderful in the Amsterdamse Bos, where you are immediately when you step out of the garden. At the floating jetty it is possible to moor your own boat on the private jetty, so that you can be on De Nieuwe Meer within a few minutes. In the winter months it is very romantic with the pallet stove on, enjoying a snowy garden and skating with the neighborhood (when there is ice on the water), where many serve mulled wine and neighborhoods with each other.
