About our home

Our spacious designed waterfront vila is a 3 stocks house (260 square meters), 2 bathrooms, 2 bedrooms, garden and patio, with direct access to the lake (to take a swim). Build in 2007, designed by architect John Bosch. The house is located in an new relaxed district in Amsterdam, famous because of several streets where the owners designed their own houses, if you ar a architect or interested in architecture you will love to walk around in the neighborhood to view these houses. We ask GREAT CAUTION for our new wooden floor. Please don't wear any shoes in the house. We moved to this house in januari 2019, so everything is new and well decorated.
The house has a beautiful lake side view, and sunny garden. Swimming is possible in the lake in front of the house. The house is situated in a
quit area, on an island near the centre. The city-center is just a 15 minutes ride by tram. The tramstation is one blok away from our house (a walk from 3 minutes) The tram rides every 5 minutes. If you like cycling, you can also use our bicycles. The popular city beach "Blijburg" is 10 minutes away. The nearest shopping area is a 5 minute walk (big super market, organic foodstore, bakery, butcher, fish market, pharmacy, general practise, bookstore, restaurants, coffeebar)

We renewed the house totally with 2 new bathrooms, a wooden floor on the ground floor, a stove, renewed the patio and made a walk in closet in our bedroom. The house is straight at the lake with a private jetty; nice to swim or explore the neighberhood with our small electric boat.

Where is it?


IJburg is a neighberhood in Amsterdam wich was totaly build up in a big lake. This ‘land making’ (with millions of tons of sand) is still going on and is very interesting to follow when you are visiting this neighberhood. Beautifull views at the ‘ijsselmeer’ and the special architecture from lots of houses designed by architectes or designed by the owners themselfes. By tram you are within 15 minutes at Amsterdam central station in the city center. The tramstop is a 5 minutes walk from our house, but you can also use our bikes and explore Amsterdam at the Dutch way. You can easely bike to the city center within 20 minutes.
