In one of the most vibrant and convenient neighbourhoods of Amsterdam you will find this spacious, bright, fully furnished loft-style fifth floor apartment for design lovers, expats, and Amsterdammers alike. The apartments boasts tremendous views of the trendy Amsterdam-Oost neighbourhood, private residents' park, and the World Trade Center in the distance. The main living area of this apartment is a quiet oasis, meticulously outfitted with Danish, Dutch, and Asian design pieces and art work, collected over the years from the owner's time abroad in Hong Kong, London, and New York. The living area is further completed by an LG television and Philips soundbar system. The rustic, open kitchen is fully equipped with tableware, cookware, and utensils, and leads to a separate utility and storage room (including washer and separate dryer). The expansive master bedroom with super-king sized bed, double closets and a sitting area, a spacious bathroom with bathing tub, and a guest bedroom complete the interior of the apartment. One highlight of the apartment is a west-facing 11 m² balcony where you can sit in the sun from afternoon to sunset, entertaining a group of friends or simply relaxing with a book (or drink!) after work. The balcony overlooks the exclusive, beautifully landscaped and well-kept private park of approx. 2000m², yet another outdoor option for you to enjoy. On the horizon, the towers of the business district of Amsterdam, World Trade Center / Zuidas, loom large. The metro is a few steps from the building, making this both a very convenient but also relaxing and private sanctuary for those looking to make the most of Amsterdam and their home within it.
Possibility to rent a parking spot in the garage below the building for € 250,- per month.
The house is located on the Wibautstraat, around the corner of Weesperzijde and the Amstel river, within walking distance of the Oosterpark, the renewed Beukenplein and the cozy de Pijp area. In the immediate vicinity, the Eerste Oosterparkstraat has a large variety of different shops. For daily shopping there is a big Albert Heijn supermarket, Etos and Gall & Gall on the Wibautstraat itself. The well-known daily markets Albert Cuyp and Dapper Market can be visited in a five-minute bike ride. The range of well-known and lesser-known cafés and restaurants is very diverse. In addition, the city's trendiest night spots such as Canvas on the 7th and Hotel Arena can be found in this neighbourhood. Theater Carré, the cozy Oosterpark and the Amstel are also around the corner. As soon as you walk out the door you will find numerous hotspots such as Loetje, Ysbreeker, Bar Bukowski, Hesp, Rijsel, Restaurant C and the Volkshotel with Skybar Canvas.
The building is adjacent to the Amstel River, which in addition to serving as the namesake for the city ("Aemstelredam"), comes alive in the summer with boats, swimmers, and sunbathers. Despite being just a few minutes outside of the city center, on a summer's day on the Amstel you will feel as if you are hours away from the urban hustle.
The accessibility and location of the house is excellent. By car you will be on the Ring A10 within minutes or the Amstel train station. The metro stop 'Wibautstraat' is in front of your door and other tram and bus stops (Ruyschstraat, Weesperzijde) are easy to reach. You can safely park your bicycle at the side of the building, behind a locked door.
Well-kept general entrance, from which you can also access the private park. Through the common entrance, using the elevator, you will enter the apartment on the fifth floor. From the hallway you can access all the rooms which have a beautiful, insulated hardwood parquet floor. At the front is the spacious, bright living room with large windows and an open kitchen. The side room doubles as a guest bedroom and has an extra wide window seat from where you have an unobstructed view onto the green of Wibautpark and the ever-dynamic and changing neighbourhood of Amsterdam Oost.
The open kitchen is equipped with various built-in appliances like an oven with microwave functionality, a ceramic cooker, dishwasher and fridge with freezer. Next to the kitchen is the very practical utility room with lots of extra storage space, including the dryer and washing machine. The spacious bathroom has a walk-in shower, a bath and a sink. At the other side of the hall there is a separate toilet with a sink. Fresh, hotel-style towels are included.
The very spacious and bright hotel-like master bedroom features a super-king sized bed, double wardrobes, and a sitting / lounge area. The master bedroom leads directly to an extra wide and deep covered balcony. This gives you a wonderful view on one of the largest private parks in Amsterdam where you will get the sun from the early afternoon till sunset. The balcony is perfect for entertaining friends, reading a book, or relaxing after a hard day's work. The fact that it is covered also allows it to be used during those all-too-frequent rainy Amsterdam days!
